Therapy FAQs

What’s the difference between talking to a therapist and my best friend or family?

The difference is between someone who can do something and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Lastly, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business”.

What can I gain from working with a therapist?

  • Finding more effective ways to cope with stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself and your personal goals and values
  • Better managing of emotional pressures
  • Improving communications skills – learn how to really “hear” others, and have others listen to you
  • Getting “unstuck” from unhealthy patterns
  • Discovering new ways to solve problems
  • Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence
