INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

 

“But I’m not crazy.”  “I don’t want to be weak.”  “I was told I should never talk about these things with strangers.”  There are many reasons why people hesitate to seek counseling; people may even be confused about what counseling is.  Counseling, or therapy, is more than providing a listening ear; it involves providing a space where people can talk and reflect on their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, attitudes, and experiences.  Despite common misconceptions, counseling is not for “crazy,” “weak,” or indiscreet people.  Counseling is an investment in yourself in which you collaborate with a therapist to achieve goals you set for yourself.  Counseling involves stepping out of your comfort zone, discussing and experiencing uncomfortable situations, and being challenged to grow with the assistance of a trained and experienced professional who can offer you the support you need as you gain insight and decide any lasting changes you want to make.
