Crisis is the entry point
for knowing ourselves
Sometimes crisis comes in the form of an out-of-control teenager
Do we impose more structure or let go?
Or there's the decline of an aging parent, and we are confused
How do we support them? What about this panic we feel?
Or our spouse gets seriously ill or loses a job
a marriage isn't what we thought it was
a conflict with a co-worker drives us to distraction
Or a question - if I let myself grieve, will I ever stop?
A crisis can be a lifelong pattern of worry or regret
or a nagging suspicion about the effects of drinking
Whatever the nature of the problem
learning how to sort our feelings
deciding on actions to take
is something we all need help with from time to time

INITIAL PHONE INQUIRY
Most people, fundamentally, want relief. Our tendency is to want to get away with as much as we can, change as little as possible, and be told that we're wonderful.
But the thing is, the ultimate relief is change. If we really want relief, then we have to become interested in really changing, in giving up this deeply compromised relationship to life. And then you get the ultimate relief, because you're actually a different person, and you're not so afraid of life anymore. You're actually engaging with life in a passionate, dynamic way.
