When my daughters were small I took them with me to visit my counselor, Ed. Not because we were having any problems at the time, but because I wanted them all to get to know each other. I knew there would be times that we’d need his help and I didn’t want the foreign-ness of an appointment to add more stress to whatever we might already be experiencing. Last week, in the midst of a heated argument , my older daughter and I looked at each other and at the same time said, “Maybe we need to talk to Ed about this one.” It was such a relief. The issue was an important one to us both, and I did not know how to resolve it. We both recognized that we needed help. Fortunately, we both also knew where to find it.
Addressing our problems, whether they be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, or interpersonal is part of good health. It’s part of taking good care of ourselves. Unresolved problems eventually impact our health. Finding good help is the next piece. If you’ve never done it before it can be overwhelming and intimidating, not to mention a bit of a game of roulette. Through my work and personal experience, I’ve gathered a wonderful network of professionals to help with any of these issues. Connecting people with the assistance they need to further help them along their path of abundant health is an important part of my work. I’m happy to help you find the help you need to take good care of yourself.
