What can therapy address?
I often hear from folx starting therapy for the first time, "I don't know why I waited so long!" I think there can be the idea that therapy is a last resort. I believe that therapy really is for everyone and can be so beneficial no matter what you might be dealing with. Some people come to therapy to address a present issue - anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, etc. Some people come to therapy to address a past issue - trauma, family dynamics, etc. But therapy can also be a great tool to improve on things that are not necessarily "terrible." Therapy can help improve communication and boundary setting in order to have more fulfilling relationships. Therapy can help you find clarity in your goals. Therapy can help you find ways to manage stress and bring more joy into your life. Therapy can help you work on building confidence which can lead to living the life you envision for yourself.
How has therapy been helpful for you?
