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 pays off long after the sessions are over. After our time together, you’ll have tools and techniques that will prepare you for a variety of situations including any resurfacing of trauma responses. You spend money on self-care purposes all the time, from medical appointments to haircuts—even to the health food you buy at the grocery store. So why not make an investment in your mental health that will pay off for years to come?
What if I don’t have enough time for therapy?
All too often, time can be a scarce commodity, but you’re worth setting aside the time to focus on yourself. It’s easy to become distracted by the demands of our fast-paced society, but working with a therapist can help you cultivate a greater sense of accountability and agency within your own life. Together, we can develop a plan that allows you to take care of yourself, pursue your ambitions, and allow you to move beyond your past.
What if I uncover something I didn’t want to know?
If ever we run into something that causes you distress, we can slow down the pace and find other ways of processing your pain. We don’t necessarily have to go directly through the heart of your mental trauma in order to foster healing. Therapy is a process of self-discovery, but that doesn’t mean you have to be frightened. Even working at your own pace, you can still take your life back from unresolved trauma.
Can’t I just rely on friends and family for help?
Having a strong support system is important for healing trauma. However, your friends and family don’t always possess the necessary skills to 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 healing your trauma and transforming your life.
