Dating a woman that I care deeply about. She has had some horrible life experiences in her past that I am concerned have given her some latent/deep seated issues.

I would like to correspond with a knowledgeable person; I'll provide a list of what's happened to her and hopefully someone can tell me what sort of issues I might expect down the road.

Analogy would be; if she was in a plane crash at an early age she might, understandably, have a fear of planes or heights. This in turn would suggest that we don't go on long airplane flights.

You will get more and better advice if you openly discuss these things. Some people will chime in if there is a particular thing they have experience with, but otherwise they may not want to comment on other things.

Note if I am having a problem I am having a difficult time dealing with, I ask 5 different people for advice. Then get various viewpoints. That advice is *much* better than asking just one person!

Agreed and have done that already. Some of this stuff gets a little technical though and now I want to speak to someone more educated.

It would be like asking 5 people about quantum physics; I now want to talk to an actual physicist.

Then you are best to hire a psychologist or psychiatrist. Note some of these professionals are more experienced at certain things.

For example for "management associated people problems", you may find a psychiatrist who in the past ran a mental health facility or state mental hospital - would have plenty of management experience along with his/her other training.

Or someone my have years of experience with developmentally disabled people. Someone may have worked at a veterans administration hospital and have tons of experience with PTSD. Etc.

So ask around and you may find your "physicist" (they are not cheap though!) Start asking at your county mental health department. Or look in the phone directory for mental health or counseling.

If you want anyone here and for free, you need to state what specific experience you want. And would pretty much need to discuss it openly.
