If you want something inside the function protected from parallel/recursive calls, you can do that by placing a criitical section and a class member variable inside it. If don't want the function to be called at all, you could make it private and add a public function as the only one that calls it. It could look something like that:
void somePublicFunc()
{
    EnterCriticalSection(); // keep other treads out
    try
    {
        if (!alreadyRunning) // static private member variable to prevent recursive calls
        {
            alreadyRunning = true;
            privateFunction();
            alreadyRunning = false;
        }
    }
    catch (...)
    {
        alreadyRunning = false; // important to do that before leaving the critical section
        LeaveCriticalSection(); // prevent a dead lock
        throw; // let the caller decide what to do with the initial exception
    }
    LeaveCriticalSection();
}

So privateFunction() will only be called once at a time no matter from which thread (provided you don't add another member function that calls it or introduce any friend classes).
The good thing about pessimism is, that you are always either right or pleasently surprised.
