I’ve heard people who go to counseling are “crazy” or “weak.” Is that true?
Not at all. Everyone can benefit from counseling from time-to-time. People who seek counseling are actually brave and strong, knowing that it is an important tool to help them feel better. You already have skills to handle life’s challenges, but perhaps you have a problem that feels overwhelming, making it difficult to access your coping strategies. Or maybe you would like to learn more strategies to put in your toolbox.
What if I don’t know what to say or what to do?
We will work together to figure out what is best for you. Your therapist will also ask questions if you’re not sure what to say. Some clients even enjoy working on an art project or listening to music while talking in session.
What if my therapist and I are not a good fit?
You are not stuck! Everyone has different needs and therapists have a variety of specializations and personalities. We offer a free 15-minute consultation with one of our therapists to help figure out who you should have a first appointment with. At the first appointment, we’ll help determine if it makes sense to continue with that therapist or if another therapist would be a better fit.
