There are lots of reasons a person might seek therapy or counseling...they may want to feel better about themselves or about their relationships with others. Some specific reasons might be:
Depression, stress, anger or anxiety Natural life transitions like raising adolescents and launching young adults Unexpected life events like a health crisis or trauma Alcohol or other drug issues Relationships with family and friends Concerns about aging parents or adult children Co-parenting or divorce Intimate partner violence Loss of a loved one or a pet Miscarriage or abortion Eating and sleeping issues Loneliness and shyness Self-esteem, self-confidence or self-sabotaging concerns Career and life transitions like job loss or dissatisfaction Marriage or re-marriage Desire for increased personal growth, satisfaction and insight Academic challenges
Sometimes people come to therapy or counseling with vague or undefined issues...just a sense or feeling that things are not quite right. And that's ok, too. A therapist can offer support, guidance and clarity. Pain in life is inevitable at times and is often a sign that there is a wound that needs tending. Finding and tending to the wound effectively often involves making a change. Change can be stressful and scary however, it is also a time of great opportunity to create something new and fulfilling.
