Is therapy right for me?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the issues that you are currently facing? Have you or a loved one recently been diagnosed with a serious, life-threatening, or chronic illness? Does it feel like you have faced an avalanche of challenges? Do you find yourself “censoring” when people ask how you are, so that you don’t “overload” or “worry” them? Does it feel like the ways that you would normally cope with problems aren’t helping you right now? Do you sometimes just wish that you had a place where you could talk openly about your struggles? If you answered yes to any of those questions, therapy might be right for you.
Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems.
Even people who have good social support and strong coping skills can be overwhelmed when the circumstances of their lives shift suddenly. New stresses, illness, loss, or a series of difficult changes, can all erode coping skills. If you are facing these challenges, then therapy may add a valuable layer of support so that you can re-assess and strengthen coping. Therapy can also provide a supportive, caring, outside perspective that may help you uncover harmful patterns and improve upon existing strengths. We fully believe that seeking support when you need it is a good indicator of overall current strength in coping.
Our team of licensed therapists have many years of experience and are well equipped to help you work through whatever issue, problem or challenge you are currently facing. We want to partner with you to heal your past, enjoy your present, and embrace your future. So if you are struggling day to day, know you don’t have to face things alone.
