Reasons to Seek Support

Sometimes you need to talk to someone, someone who can help... When you feel like you can't do it alone... When you feel trapped, like there's nowhere to turn... When you worry all the time, and never seem to find the answers... When the way you feel is affecting your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your everyday life... When even the advice offered by family or well-meaning friends doesn't really help you feel any better.

Recognizing the need for professional help is a good first step towards improvement. These services can be of real benefit, providing help for a wide range of problems such as depression, loss, marital strife, parent-child concerns, or emotional distress. It can also help fulfill aspirations for personal growth or self-improvement. It has one clear and definite purpose: that something of positive value and constructive usefulness will come out of it for you.

Reasons to seek support include the following:

Emotional Distress

From time to time, everyone experiences emotional pain. But sometimes the distress is particularly severe or long-lasting and interferes with your ability to function in your daily life. If you are experiencing sadness, grief, or anxiety that is persistent, therapy can help relieve the symptoms, address the underlying causes for your distress, and provide you with help in restoring emotional well-being.

Personal Growth

Therapy and Life Coaching can help you overcome obstacles that have kept you from reaching your goals and becoming the person you want to be. Although you might not have a clinical condition or symptoms, we can help you learn more about yourself, as well as others, and how you can live your life with deeper personal satisfaction.

Relationship Issues

Your distress may be coming from difficulties in your relationship with a spouse, parent, child, co-worker or significant other. Seeking help from a licensed relationship therapist can be valuable in helping you understand the root of the problem and providing you with the understanding and skills you need to improve the relationship.

Life Transitions

Transitions in a person’s life can be tough to handle. These can include planned events such as births, starting school, coming of age, college admission and matriculation, graduation, job searching, pregnancy/abortion/having a child, living alone, starting a business, vacationing, and retirement. They can also include unplanned life events such as substance addiction, being sued, being a victim of crime, natural disasters, medical issues, divorce, death, marriage, relocation, and career changes.
