Try CBT: You might want to try cognitive behavioral therapy. It can be more goal & skill-set oriented. It assumes that changing negative thinking leads to a change in behavior. So instead of digging up old mental trauma, it teaches you skills to cope with future stress. They can teach you to stop bad ways of thinking such as overgeneralizing, magnifying negatives, minimizing positives & "awfulizing."
