When to ask for help

Some problems do not go away on their own.

Everyone has problems now and then. That’s a normal part of life. It’s not unusual, at times, to feel overwhelmed with life’s pressures, lose track of priorities, or even feel stuck.

Therapy is useful when:

  • The emotional pain is prolonged or intense
  • Defficulties become repetitive
  • No solutiong seems to be working
  • A person feels stuck in the past
  • Physical signs of stress are experienced such as difficulties eating, sleeping or concentrating
  • Emotions, or behaviors, are out of proportion or not making sense

Even when you know what you need to do, it can still be a struggle to follow through with such changes. Therapy can help with this.

Therapy can help if you are trying to:

  • change behavior that is interfering with your goals and/or your relationships
  • Work on coping with feelings, such as fear, sadness, or anger that interfere with your quality of life.
  • Resolve differences with others.

You do not have to struggle alone

Whether you are:

  • Working on a personal goal
  • Desire a closer relationship with someone else
  • Are striving to be a good parent
