It can be intimidating to walk into a therapist's office or connect with a therapist from your computer especially if you are not sure of what to expect. If you are considering therapy, you probably have questions or have been doing some research online. Please keep reading for information on what no one tells you about therapy but should.
You Have To Want To Change
Therapy is not magic but it can provide you with tools that can assist you in making significant changes. A part of the therapist's role, is to help guide you on the journey of recognizing patterns and making healthier choices. It is up to you whether you take action, but as a therapist, it's my job to help cheer you on as you move through the change process.
You Will Not Feel Better Immediately
Therapy takes time and commitment and relies on you to create better habits and engage in behaviors that lead to a more fulfilling life. This is not something that happens immediately and often you may feel uncomfortable or worse than when you started. It is important to remember that the end goal of therapy is to help you create a more meaningful life for yourself.
