Perhaps you can give the state psychological association a call and ask them for a referral (here in New Jersey, we have an extensive referral program run by the NJ Psych association). For now, recognize that it's important for you to not feel powerless. You can start by simply going out for a brief walk each day...anything that begins to help you step apart from feeling stuck. If you do try to walk, it's important for you to clear your mind and not stay trapped in reflexive, insecurity-driven thinking, do this by becoming more "present," i.e., if you go for a walk, rather than thinking about all your struggles, notice the flowers, feel the breeze, the sunshine....try to give yourself a mental vacation. The more you separate from your inner frictions, the more you'll be building up your psychological resilience.

I do wish you well...
