What is therapy?
Therapy provides a safe, supportive, and confidential space for you to speak openly and freely. Therapy is not just “talking about problems”, but rather about collaboratively finding solutions to help you change and transform your life. People are motivated to come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Some people may need to deal with a specific situation, while others may be seeking support or an alternative perspective around life-long issues. Some of the reasons you may decide to come to counseling are:
· Personal growth and insight
· Stress management
· Social anxiety
· Trauma and PTSD
· Relationship difficulties
· Anger management
· Childhood and/or sexual abuse
· Low self esteem
· Career counseling
· Major life transitions
