We all experience stress, sadness, anger, anxiousness, and discouragement at times. Life is hard!
Many times, these challenges can be faced on our own, or with the support of family or friends. But sometimes, these challenges begin to feel like they are more than we can handle on our own. Here are some helpful questions to consider as you decide whether or not some outside help could be useful:
Is there a concerning behavior or feeling that seems to be getting worse?
Have your attempts to stop the behavior or feeling been unsuccessful?
Are you having difficulty controlling your emotions?
Do you have anxious thoughts that feel intrusive and all-consuming?
Are you experiencing difficult emotions or circumstances that are impacting your work, school, or relationships?
Have you lost interest in things you used to love?
Do you have persistent feelings of being hopeless or worthless?
Are you eating or sleeping too much or too little?
These may be indications that you could benefit from the assistance of a therapist. Through therapy, you can:
Get the comfort you need. You don't have to suffer in silence.
Learn healthy coping strategies.
Develop stronger relationships and improve your ability to establish boundaries.
Work through difficult emotions so they don't come back to impact your life later.
Gain new and powerful perspectives on yourself and others.
Identify negative thought patterns and re-wire your brain!
If you are seeking change, growth, or peace, there is no better time than now to begin walking down that path toward happiness. I'd love to be part of your journey. - Cory
