Emails on 4/30/2013 & 5/1/2013
We had not heard from Dr. Beth McGuire for weeks. Between Tammy and I we had sent her 5 messages and emails.
This group of emails was sent from a different account.

For some reason, I have a great deal of difficulty getting reports onto my thumb drive in a way that I can open them at the office. Had intended on getting this to you much earlier today.
Here is where she attached: Her report for Commissioner Daniel Click on link below to see it):

Aside from the fact that you involved all these people in what was supposed to be confidential therapy for me and Megan...I have the following concerns.
But first, thank you for the email and the letter. It is very revealing. It was pretty much what we expected after not hearing from you for weeks and you not responding to our emails and text messages.
Unfortunately, you couldn't have been further off base. You have done irreparable damage. What happened to first do no harm?
I asked the courts for therapy for Megan and myself to help with parental alienation and you decided on your own to include everyone on "Christy's side" while failing to communicate with our personal therapist, Carol Teitelbaum? or any of our family members who could have given you a more accurate description of what is going on.
It seems like you went out of your way to "prove" to yourself that I am the problem.
There are so many inaccuracies in your letter which will be addressed; you should have considered your sources.
Here is just one quote from Jeree in regards to Christy:
Jeree Mead Barrow wrote me about Christy, on Dec 18, after Christy kept us from Megan over the Christmas holiday.
"Let me try to guess...BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER?? Please do tell... Maybe her psycho mom will change her mind."
You see Beth, everyone knows theres something wrong with Christy including Jeree. Jeree has simply sided with her because she has been estranged from our family. By-the-way, she is also about to lose her MFT license. But you chose to spoke with her in regards to making a decision about our family...about Megan's future?
The mother of the other minor children in the house is also being alienated from the other children in Christy's home. You may have just made it more difficult to save those children from going through the same ordeal that Megan is going through.
Had we known that you were getting this many people involved, we would have gotten you in contact with many relatives and friends, teachers and school counselor and Mike's ex-wife, the mother of the children in our home who would have corroborated what is really going on ...not to mention all the actual documentation of what we are going through.
So now will you answer my question? Do you have any training in Parental Alienation?

I am not sure that you and I will ever find common ground. I was hoping that the common ground might be leaving the past in the past and trying to have you and Megan move forward with rebuilding trust. When you could not manage to make a meeting between Megan and her sister, Sophie happen, I became very unsure if we could find any common ground.
This is not about you and Christy; it's about you and Megan. I think that you and Christy together have the potential to make a better parenting team than either of you has separately. However, you have to be willing to end the war of trying to discredit and undercut each other. This is essential to any success. This is not a contest to reveal the last parent standing. This is not about who is the sickest parent or who is the most inept parent; it's about who can be the most business-like, civil, cooperative, and kind.
I want you to know that the reason I contacted people was that I wanted to be sure that I was grasping the facts. Some of the people I mentioned contacted me unsolicited by me and I felt I needed to let the Court know that rather than conceal it. Carol Teitelbaum wrote a very nice summary of her work with you.
I hope you can find a way to let go of the need to win the battle with Christy and turn your attention to building rapport and a stout emotional bank with Megan.

It is quite obvious that you have issues with me. Not only did you violate privacy issues but you only contacted people who christy suggested. Listening to hearsay rather while completely disregarding the Documented evidence I sent you. Had I known that you sought corroborating evidence I have family friends and witneses as well...[I am] in court now...so will you answer my question...do you have training with parental alienation? I have asked you a number of times. Please answer. It important now.

Dear Joe and Dr. McGuire, I first would like to say that my heart is very heavy at this point and I am truly sorry that this has been a very difficult case. Megan will continue counseling with Shirley (if she will accept this) as this is my absolute main concern in all of this. Joe while you do not agree on my parenting styles and continue to expose your daughter, me and our family, the damaging effects should not supersede Megan's feelings and privacy. With that, will you please take her name, her photo and audio off your website so that she would not be subjected to community humiliation. In addition, at any point you would like to try therapy and delay the trial I would certainly be open to this idea. I suggest this because while you many seem a trial, court and social media is the answer to your "cause", it only is worsening (in my opinion) your relationship with Megan. This situation can be mended and result in positive changes, however I fear you have lost perspective on the most important aspect which is our beautiful daughter Megan. Please do not blame Dr. McGuire, therapist or other persons involved. If you need to blame someone put it on me, because everyone involved has been here for Megan and does not deserve what you are doing to them. Dr. McGuire I again apologize to you, this unfortunately will not end and I fear his email correspondences will continue. I will continue to pray for our families and will strive to reveal the truth in all of this unnecessary emotional turmoil. A trial as suggested by you Joe may be your answer to what you may think would expose the truth, and I really do agree this would but it would also expose Megan and involve her in the court process as she will have to testify on her behalf. Please understand what this may do to our daughter, family and friends. In the interim, I hope that Megan will continue to be shielded from this as I have made it my upmost attempt for her not see everything on FB and your website.
