Do I need therapy?
Everyone has challenging situations in life, and there’s nothing wrong with asking for a little help and support from time to time. When you realize you need that extra support starting therapy is taking responsibility into your own hands and making a commitment to yourself to start positive change. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
Who goes to therapy?
A lot of us! Everyone struggles. Some people come to therapy as the result of a particular occurrence, like divorce, a death in the family, coming out to friends and family, addiction, or depression. But most people who come to therapy are people like you and I—everyday ordinary people, who are struggling with common everyday issues like work, relationships, communication, stress, or health. We both know those everyday issues can build up from a molehill to feel like a mountain. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives.
There are some things you should expect from therapy and your therapist:
- Compassion, respect and understanding
- Guidance and perspective
- What are my mental health benefits?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
