I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.
What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
Your family might mean well, but if they’re anything like most families, they probably won’t be able to hold in their “advice”, judgement or platitudes. (“just try to relax” – my favorite!).
A mental health professional knows how your mind works and can pay attention to the deeper meaning of your words, rather than getting lost on the surface meaning. Moreover, I can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.”
How long will it take?
A great question but a very difficult one to answer! The short answer is that therapy is over when you accomplished what you came to therapy to do. This could take a few weeks or a few years. The bad news is tha tproblems won’t go away on their own, the good news is that therapy can help, although it takes some time. Lifelong issues can’t be totally fixed in a couple of weeks, but this quote might help:
The best time to plant a tree is 10 years ago, the second-best time is today!
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I’m so glad to hear that! The best thing to do is to get started! There is never a perfect moment to start, so there is no moment like the present!
Beyond that, the best thing you can do is to commit to regular sessions so we can delve deep into whatever is troubling you.
