Why should I consider therapy?
We all experience occasional problems throughout life, and these often show up a stress, poor health, a depressed mood, anxious thoughts and unhealthy relationships. The therapy process can often help you overcome these types of responses, confronting and managing your emotional ups and downs and other transitions with a renewed sense of confidence, optimism and hope.
How can a therapist help me?
At TherapyWorks, we understand that the process of therapy is as unique as each individual. Therefore, we start by first identifying your specific needs and ongoing struggles before moving to the counseling process. Many people report that working with a counselor makes them better able to begin making the changes necessary to achieve better life adjustment and greater life satisfaction.
What if it’s hard for me to reach out for help?
Although some people struggle reaching out in hard times and may even consider it a sign of “weakness,” the reality is that asking for and being open to help is actually a sign of strength. After all, it takes more courage to admit when you feel overwhelmed and change than it does to simply continue to make unhealthy choices. A number of our clients have stated how self-empowered they feel after their therapy sessions, making them better able to handle whatever comes their way.
