There is a misconception that something must be “wrong” with you if you need therapy. That could not be further from the truth. Therapy can be helpful to most people. It does not mean that there is something wrong with you or that you are somehow “flawed”. Therapy provides a safe environment to explore thoughts and emotions without judgment. It allows you to reflect and determine your best course of action for a particular aspect of your life. Having an objective point of view from the therapist will help guide you through your journey and can provide both support and encouragement. Here are ten (there are many others) reasons why you may want to consider therapy:

  1. You recently experienced a loss and are unsure how to handle it.
  2. You suffer from anxiety and do not know how to cope with it.
  3. You are struggling to find a healthy way to express your emotions.
  4. You need extra support as you start a new chapter in your life.
  5. Stress in your life is becoming unmanageable and you want to feel calmer.
  6. You experienced trauma as a child, impacting you in adulthood.
  7. You suffer from low self-esteem and have difficulty feeling confident.
  8. You are experiencing communication issues within your close relationships.
  9. You experienced family issues as a child and you do not want to continue the same behaviors with your own family.
  10. You feel like you are not enough.

Therapy can help you navigate through these obstacles and feel empowered and in control of your life. If you are in New Jersey and are looking for a therapist contact me at:
