Most Popular Questions To Discuss Mental Health
First of all I think you are super brave to even consider getting help. Therapy can look like a lot of things, but mostly the goal is to help you feel better. We talk about things that are bothering you. We work on learning ways to manage symptoms, such as decreasing worries, fears or sadness. We figure out things that make you this way to better manage those triggers. We explore family patterns that impact your functioning or coping skills.
This is a great question and a very important one. Honestly studies show the better the relationship between a therapist and their patient/ client the more effective treatment will be. This is why I offer a free 15- “good fit” call to get to know one another and see if we are a good fit. If after working together something feels off, we can figure out how to make it better or refer you out to another therapist.
I honestly believe everyone can benefit from therapy. Being in therapy is a supportive, non judgmental space where you can talk, process and heal. Some of my patients start working with me to deal with chronic anxiety or to manage resentment towards their spouse. Others want to heal from years of trauma.
