How Psychotherapy Can Help
Have you ever had the experience of really wanting to talk about something, but everyone you rely on - friends and family - all have their own needs and agendas? Maybe you're feeling frustrated by too many opinions about what you should do or how you should behave. A good support system is a give and take, but sometimes you need a bit more.
A therapeutic relationship is a different dynamic. A therapist should spend your time together completely invested in your well-being. There are no "sides" to take, no agenda to push, other than making sure you are safe. From that bedrock, we create a safe environment where you can try out ideas, clarify your beliefs, practice what you might say or do, and create a narrative of strength.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Are you unsure if therapy is a good choice? Some people fear that going to therapy puts them in a vulnerable position, that they somehow relinquish control or their own free will. The media hasn't really done a great job of realistically portraying the therapy experience. In reality, therapy is about helping you achieve the best version of yourself. You choose how engaged you want to be, you choose how deep into the work you want to go. There are some times in your life when a brief intervention is all that you need; at other times, you might be interested in exploring the source of some of your ideas and beliefs. Your job, in therapy, is to be a partner in deciding what you want to work on, being vocal about how things are going, and most importantly - you are the one who will be doing the work. I'm only here to help.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Every one of us has strengths and weaknesses, family histories that strengthen us or hold us back, and guiding principles about what matters most. A good therapist should meet you where you are and see you as a whole person. It takes time to build trust, so it's a good idea to meet with several practitioners to see who is a good fit. A good match is a true treasure, and when you find that person, you can feel confident that you are heard and understood.
