I often hear people say "I don't need counseling! I'm not crazy!" And at that moment I know their perception of therapy stems from one of few places.
They have a poor lack of knowledge of what mental health counseling is
They were told horror stories about therapy that more than likely came from someone who NEVER attended therapy
They've read or saw something that scared and gave a false representation of what therapy is
Overtime people seem to have developed a fear of the Therapist. They run from one of the most important maintenances in their lives. Maybe this is you? And maybe you have wondered if counseling is for you or what can you get out of counseling.
I say try it for yourself! I say that it is a MUST for everyone. Think of it like this. You go to the doctor yearly for a checkup. You go to the dentist when you have issues with your mouth. Having trouble seeing things? You schedule an appointment to get your vision checked.
Well, it's the same method when you are going through a difficult time in your life. Or maybe you just lost someone that was really close to you. Or maybe you're a new mom trying to figure out what to do with the new baby. Or maybe you're a college student trying to make sense of the new world you're in. Or maybe your deal is something different and you have little clarity on how to maneuver through it.
That is what we are here for! To help you learn and develop the skills to get through your crisis. This confidential process gives you a safe space to unload very personal information. You can become vulnerable in this nonjudgmental environment where nothing matters but YOU!
So, is therapy for you? YES!!! It is for everyone! It is a tool you have access to that waiting for you to utilize it. Go ahead and give a therapist a call allowing you to get a jump start toward a health future!
