Halachic Quandary

This is something I'm struggling with now. I'm going to be vague on purpose, because it would be inappropriate not too. Here is the story...

There is someone who I know is hurting (not physically) and could probably use help. However, I cannot ask this person's close friends, because the nature of her hurt would cause me to speak loshen hora. If I talk to this person directly, it might cause embarrassment, which is not my intent. My only other option is to go to this person's Rav and ask how I could help. However, this may or not be loshen hora and even if it wasn't I cannot be certain if I'm acting to help me feel better or if I'm truly doing this in this person's best interest.

What to do...
