What if your investigations lead you to the conclusion that your family needs the assistance of a mental health professional? Where do you go for help? Naturally, you’ll want to begin with prayer. Ask the Lord to supply the insight you need to make this important decision with wisdom and discernment. You’re looking for a counselor who is not only formally trained, qualified, and highly skilled, but a good match for you and your child in terms of personality, temperament, values, and basic beliefs. The Lord knows your situation, and He can lead you to the person best suited to provide you with the help you’re seeking.
Once you’ve put the situation in God’s hands, it’s time to begin your quest in earnest. The first step is to get an idea of exactly what you’re looking for.
