Q1: How do I know I need to seek help?

When you’re faced with difficult situations, whether it’s because of a professional setback, rejection, financial issues, relationships, personal loss, or some other reason, having a counselor can be a relief. Most of the time, you’re able to bounce back eventually. But sometimes you might need a little extra help to do so.

Seeking treatment or simply speaking with a counselor allows you to talk through your personal concerns, develop coping strategies and increase self-awareness. You are the master in your life however if you’re feeling stressed, having relationship problems or just need someone to talk to, I can help you to develop methods and strategies to help cope and move forward.

Q2: How can Therapy help me?


Through therapy, a counselor can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. They can also help you manage personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.


Q3:What’s the difference between talking to a therapist or my best friend or family??

Talking to sympathetic friends and family members is always a good idea!  Having a strong support system is one of the best things you can do for your mental health. Talking to a counselor is a completely different experience from talking to a friend.  One of the main differences between therapy and talking to friends is that therapy is CONFIDENTIAL. What you say in therapy, stays in therapy!
