There are some things that are hard to discuss with anyone, but there are times we all need the help of another. Are you ready to reveal the most personal and important aspects of your relationship to a close friend, a family member, or a clergyman? Maybe that is an alternative for you. However, a professional counselor:
Has professional training and experience to help with problems like yours.
Is least likely to be shocked, disappointed, disapproving, or judgmental.
Has a careful policy of privacy and confidentiality.
