When Alice in Wonderland asks the Mad hatter if she has gone mad he replies:

“I’m afraid so.  You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

  Sometimes people say the most odd things to me in social settings when I tell them I am a therapist.  I often detect a glimmer of concern in their tone,   as I suspect they imagine me, going to work everyday in a combat zone.  The truth, as I see it, is that “crazy” people never go to therapy.  It takes a relative measure of mental health to motivate one’s self to enter the process of self revelation, and an even greater amount to tolerate the work of change.  The “best people” in my opinion are the ones who are actively working at the process of making themselves best.  Counseling is but one of the tools to facilitate this process.
