GROWTH WITH GUIDANCE
"Courage doesn't happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to
face the questions you have been
avoiding your whole life."
It is no surprise that individual therapy still comes with some stigma attached to it. Some people think individual therapy is only for people who are "crazy" or "weak". So, let's clarify a few things— most people who initiate counseling do not have a serious mental illness. They have serious life challenges or are going through such difficult times that their go-to coping skills are no longer working or their problems are starting to affect their day-to-day lives. Going to a therapist when you're feeling sad or overwhelmed should be as normal as going to the doctor when you have a cold.
I imagine you are here because something is not feeling quite right in your life and you are ready to do something about it. Taking the first step by looking for help is a great start. Individual counseling is a unique experience that allows you the opportunity to take a deeper look at yourself, your thoughts, behaviors and the subsequent outcomes. Taking the time to understand your true motivations and unhealthy lifelong patterns can be incredibly empowering.
