Answering Common Questions - How to Pick (and Fire!) Your Therapist

Alternatively, struggles may include depression or anxiety, drinking alcohol too often, or even uncontrolled worry. Sometimes, life's struggles can be eased by taking better care of oneself, and perhaps talking about the issues with a pastor, a supportive friend and/or family member.
