Perhaps you’re considering therapy but still have some concerns…
What if therapy is too expensive for me?
Therapy is an investment in yourself that stays with you forever. It’s easy to discount your needs and ignore your emotions, but over time unresolved conflicts can start to compile, leaving you overwhelmed, exhausted, and confused. Prioritizing your own well-being is a worthwhile investment, and therapy for depression can give you the space to see yourself in a new light.
What if I don’t have time for therapy?
I understand attending therapy can be difficult if you have a busy schedule. However, your health is something worth setting the time aside for. It’s easy to be distracted by the world, but with planning, you don’t have to be overwhelmed. In our session, we’ll create a schedule that accommodates your needs. For those with more demanding responsibilities, I have some Saturday and early evening availability as well.
Can’t I just rely on friends and family for help?
Having a strong support system is important when depression is a part of your life. Those who love you will be a great resource as you work to overcome depression. However, your friends and family don’t always possess the necessary skills to fully support your healing journey. In fact, your relationships can often be an obstacle, as people may be too close and personally invested in your life to stay focused on what’s best for your healing journey, whereas a trained professional has developed skills and experience to support you in recovering from depression and transforming your life. Together, we’ll identify the ways in which family and friends can be supportive while setting forth boundaries that give you the space to heal.
I’ve tried so many things and nothing has helped. How do I know therapy is right for me?
My approach prioritizes discovering your needs so we can reduce the emotional responses surrounding your depression. It’s no secret that depression is overwhelming. But together, we’ll work to ease you into the therapeutic journey at a comfortable pace. Once we uncover your needs, we’ll develop a model towards overcoming depression that challenges you with lessons that will positively influence the rest of your life. The way I work allows you to take charge of your healing. My goal is to empower you so you won’t need me forever, and this is possible due to the way IFS works.
