Often, people equate seeking counseling services as a sign of weakness, or that there is something wrong with them. I want to take this opportunity to tell you this is an outdated way of thinking. Therapy is a tool that can be helpful in a wide range of circumstances, from wanting to be your best in relationships, personal life and in the workplace, or for treatment of concerns such as anxiety and depression. As a therapist, it is very rewarding for me to witness the excitement people share when the realize the new directions they can take, and all the potential the awaits them.
Hopefully you are beginning to view counseling services as an investment in your well being and relationships. If you think there are areas in which you can improve your life and efforts to do this on your own haven’t resulted in success, collaboration with a therapist may help you reach your goals.
