What are some reasons to seek therapy?


Depression


  • People who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods.
  • They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable.
  • Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.


Anxiety and Stress

  • Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused.
  • Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future.
  • To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions.


Arguments

  • Conflict resolution is an important part of any relationship.
  • Conflict plays a vital role in allowing two people to reconcile differing needs.
  • Unfortunately, when conflict is handled poorly, it can cause distress in the relationship.


Trauma

  •  Experiences that overwhelm or scare us can leave a lasting impression.
  • The symptoms can leave us stressed, depressed, and have negative consequences for our work and home life.


Communication

  • Feeling understood and understanding one's partner is what allows couples to deeply share one another's lives.
  • Often, couples struggle with communication issues, which actually mask deeper relationship issues.


Trust

  • Trust plays a vital role in sustaining a relationship.  People trust differently.
  • For some, trust is established quickly, while others are slow to grant trust.
  • Similarly, some are able to forgive quickly, while others find it hard.

Self-Esteem

  • Self-esteem is a feeling of personal worth.  It is important to be able to value yourself regardless of your current state of personal achievement, beauty, or intelligence.
  • Your self-esteem creates the foundation for a full life, great relationships, and a feeling of well-being.
