Therapy is for anyone looking to process feelings, thoughts and/or heal from traumatic events, in a confidential environment. Therapy can also help you resolve issues in life, get to the source of cycling behaviors and bring families back together again. The therapeutic process may also trigger dormant feelings and emotions, like taking a stick and stirring a muddy river. What’s on the bottom will eventually rise to the top. Hopefully, with great synergy, the right therapist can help facilitate how to take the unneeded items and put them where they belong.
So you may be wondering how can you tell if a therapist is right for you?
Before you search for a therapist, know what issues you would like to address. What issue will you present?
Consider if you need individual, family or group therapy.
Check to see if the therapist addresses or specializes with your specific concerns.
Schedule a consultation to see if they will be a good fit. Your comfort matters. If you feel uncomfortable, you are not obligated to stay with the therapist.
Consider consulting with your primary care physician for a referral.
If emotions are stirred, it does not mean that something is wrong, but it is an area to explore.
Research, research, research.
Remember: You are amazing and more than enough!
