"Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement."
