I believe that counseling --- also known as psychotherapy --- is the best gift you can give yourself.
Many times in our lives we are handed difficulties. Sometimes a difficulty might feel more like a crisis....and yet, it can also be an opportunity. Choosing to work with a counselor is a choice to allow yourself time to reflect and time to grow on life's challenges. . . time to build skills and learn how to manage difficult people, challenging emotions and tough events in your life, both past and present.
Counseling (sometimes called 'talk therapy', but it's so much more) allows you to create the life you've always wanted to live, to have the kinds of relationships you deserve and to move forward with forgiveness for the past and wisdom for the future.
