I believe one of your goals in life should be to continually learn how to resolve the problems you run into. Obviously some problems do not go away and cannot be easily resolved. With these, you must learn understanding and coping skills to manage them instead of allowing these problems to manage you. This is what counseling is all about.

Since it is our unconscious, spirit part that we are seeking to heal, we must access this part through a variety of right-brain techniques that communicate with the unconscious. The goal of this therapy is to get the defense system out of the way so that we begin to operate out of our true sense of self, begin to create boundaries, make choices truly reflective of our own wants and needs. We then find that we no longer need to rely upon the destructive coping techniques previously used to protect us from the awareness that we are not integrated.
