When Should You Go to Therapy?

Mental health issues are common and nothing to be ashamed of. Society is starting to come around and the stigma for going to therapy is starting to drop off. The National Alliance of Mental Illness has found that 1 in 5 adults in the United States has experienced some form of mental illness. If you are finding that you:

  • Cannot go to work and/or keep a job

  • Struggling with the relationships in your life

  • Using unhealthy coping skills like using drugs or alcohol to escape reality

  • Dealing with a loss and/or death

  • Grappling with change

  • Want to learn more about yourself

  • Understand how to navigate through life’s stressors

  • Figure out why you might be withdrawing socially

  • Work through feelings of prolonged sadness, loneliness, and anxiousness

  • Talk through traumatic events you’ve experienced

  • Discuss ruminating thoughts

Then speaking to a licensed mental health counselor can alleviate negative thought patterns and help you feel like you are not alone. When action is not taken to seek mental health treatment, it can lead to increased feeling of suicidality, low self-esteem, low self-worth, decreased physical health, complications in relationships and disruptions in everyday life.

Talk therapy is a safe and confidential space for individuals, couples, and families to explore their moods, thought patterns and express their true feelings without judgement.

The benefits of talk therapy are:

  • Ability to achieve goals by improving self-efficacy

  • Strengthening self-esteem and self-worth

  • Overall improved physical and mental health

  • Better relationships and connections

Everyone has emotional challenges, and everyone deserves support. Don’t hesitate to reach out and seek help that could improve your life for the rest of your life.
