People enter into therapy for many reasons. You may feel alone, in pain, confused, or guilty. You may be engaging in certain behaviors that are harmful to you and those who are closest to you. You may be looking to come to terms with early troubling experiences or memories of difficult times. Maybe you want to become more productive or empowered in your job or personal life. Regardless of why therapy is initiated, it is always a journey of self-exploration and discovery that allows for healthy growth, change and wisdom.
It is paramount to choose a psychologist with whom you feel comfortable and safe; someone who will walk with you on the path of your life and open new doors too difficult to open alone.
It takes a great deal of courage to start the conversation, but once the first words are spoken, it is easy to remember what it means to be fully human.
