At times life can present us with situations and feelings that are confusing and distressing. Being in an unfamiliar culture and far from family and friends can sometimes add to the difficulties. Talking it over can help bring to light new perspectives and alternatives that enable us to grow through the challenges. Raintree Resource Center is prepared to assist by providing referrals to counselors. All calls will be kept confidential.
