Ronald H Browne, PhD, Psychologist in Arroyo Grande
It can be very difficult to determine when a problem has become such an issue in your life that it is time to seek counseling. While this is a very individualized decision, it is important to seek counseling when a specific problem begins to disrupt your daily functioning. This disruption may be any kind of unusual behavior or constant and/ or unrelenting thought regarding that problem.
