How Do I Know If I Could Benefit From Psychotherapy?

This is a very personal decision to make. Below are some guidelines to help in considering whether you might find therapy helpful:

  • You have trouble making or keeping satisfying relationships, and you want to understand the patterns that underlie this difficulty.
  • You realize that an emotional issue has been causing stress for a long time.
  • You feel depressed, anxious, fearful, agitated, or have trouble managing your anger.
  • You recognize behavior that seems self-defeating, out of control, addictive, self-destructive, or attempt to manage your feeling with food, alcohol or drugs.
  • You are frequently distressed by traumatic memories.
  • You have trouble obtaining or keeping a satisfying job, or your behavior keeps you from advancing in your career.
  • You find that you need more support than is available in your everyday life.
  • You have difficulty separating your feelings from the feelings of others.
  • You want to learn to stand up for yourself.
  • You have questions about your sexuality or sexual identity.
  • You feel challenged as a parent.
  • You have difficulty expressing your feelings, or even knowing what you feel.

If you are experiencing any of the above issues, it may be helpful to pursue seeing a professional therapist to help you. I work with individuals, couples and families.
