3 Reasons You May Need Therapy:
1. You have been harmed, hurt, or heartbroken
2. You've lost something or someone important to you
3. Something traumatic has happened in your family
Maybe You Get Up Daily Feeling Sad, Angry, Or "Not Yourself"
Uncontrollable sadness, anger or hopelessness may be signs of a mental health issue that can improve with treatment. If you’re eating or sleeping more or less than usual, withdrawing from family and friends, or just feeling “off,” call to talk to me or another therapist before serious problems develop that impact your quality of life.
If these feelings escalate to the point that you question whether life is worth living or you have thoughts of death or suicide, reach out for help right away.
People who do well in therapy are very interested in understanding themselves and interesting in changing themselves to more effectively meet their goals.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment
We don't want a traumatic event to destroy the rest of your life. If you or someone you love has experienced something traumatic--crime, violence, an auto accident, sexual assault, war---Don't let PTSD get in the way of your life, hurt your relationships, or cause problems at work or school.
The decision to get care for PTSD symptoms can be difficult. You are not alone if you feel nervous. It is not uncommon for people with mental health conditions like PTSD to want to avoid talking about it. But getting help for your symptoms is the best thing you can do. PTSD treatments can work.
