No, seeking counseling does not make you weak, however, it is 100% normal to feel hesitant about making that initial call to start therapy. Many people feel nervous, self-conscious, or downright ashamed about “what it means to need therapy.” Many of us grew up hearing and believing that therapy was for ‘other’ people and that the need for therapy means that you are beyond help. This statement is one of the greatest myths of therapy. Simply put, therapy is a tool. It is one of many tools designed to aid a person in navigating everyday challenges in life. Many people who choose to attend therapy find that they take away some valuable self-discoveries, while others leave feeling more confident about how in interact in their relationships with others. All in all, therapy is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’, and we work hard to tailor our approach to fit your specific needs as they arise during our time together.
