Q: How do I know if I need therapy?
Q: The decision to start therapy is a personal one. People pursue therapy for many different reasons. Some seek therapy for a loss, a relational problem, increased stress in their life, problems with their jobs, amongst many other things. People find it helpful to be heard and listened to, and often talking about your feelings and thoughts with an experienced therapist can be quite beneficial.
