Frequently Asked Questions

Is therapy right for me?

There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing psychological issues, or problems with anxiety or depression. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one’s life such as a divorce or work transition.  Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address more general issues including depression, anxiety, conflict, grief, stress management, or specific ones such as body-image, and general life transitions. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness, and working towards change in their lives.
