I need help choosing a professional for my 18 yr old daughter to talk to. She seems somewhat depressed. She will be leaving to start college in about a month and I know she is somewhat nervous. She's always been somewhat shy and [to me] she is very down on herself. She doesn't seem to have really recovered from the breakup with her first and only boyfriend which, not uncommonly, she took very hard. I think she is holding onto a lot of pain, angst, fear and I want to get her some help to learn how to let go and move on so that she can enjoy all of the wonderful opportunities ahead of her. My heart is breaking for her because she seems to not enjoy life much. She said maybe she'll be better when she goes to college but my fear is if she doesn't deal with the issues now, they will follow her to college.
