No, seeking counseling does not make you weak. However, it is 100% normal to feel hesitant and nervous 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 that can help a person navigate everyday life challenges. Although therapy is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’, we work hard to tailor our approach to fit your specific needs as they arise during our time together.
