when do I need counseling?

Has your car ever made a funny noise. A noise that causes concern even though the car is still drivable? You can wait for the car to strand you alongside the road or you can get the car in for service before the inevitable breakdown occurs.

Starting counseling at the first sign of difficulty can often be more effective than waiting until the symptoms intensify and cause a “breakdown”. It is important to note that counseling is not like auto repair, living beings, unlike machines, have a built-in system for self-healing. Sometimes trauma, fear, or other intense experiences can get in the way of our built-in healing system and thus cause ongoing difficulties. Counseling may help identify and clear up whatever is blocking that system, so the natural healing process can continue.
