On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
I get it. Going into therapy can seem really scary. Who wants to sit on a couch to spill their deepest, darkest secrets to a complete stranger? You are not alone if you feel that way. But you will be alone if you allow those thoughts to keep you from seeking help.
Going to therapy is a great way to work through things with someone who not only has dedicated several years learning about mental and emotional health but they also, most likely, have gone or are going through their own journey of healing. So what does that mean for you? Your therapist will also be human, not a robot.
Therapy should be a non-judgemental place for you to process whatever you feel is impacting you at the time. It's also a place where you get to confront lies that you may have accepted as truth. It's a place where you get to share your story and have the opportunity to rewrite because you hold the pen. Don't let fear stop you from becoming the best version of yourself.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Growing up I was told that I was very resilient. I always felt that I had to be the rock in the family so I wore my resiliency as a badge of honor. I pretended like nothing ever bothered me and kept a smile on my face. It wasn't until I went to college and experienced severe anxiety and depression that I realized I wasn't exempt from dealing with emotions. I needed to address the emotional pain that I had been stuffing for all those years in order to heal. I had to learn that it is okay to not be okay and that my pain made me human. I embraced the journey of vulnerability and learned the importance of tuning in to my inner being. While those were some of the darkest moments in my life, it has made me the clinician I am today. I would love to help you with your journey to wholeness.
