Seek Help From a Therapist
Part of the reason I blog is to provide information to the general public about mental health concerns. One of the most common questions I get from people is about scheduling an appointment with a therapist and when to seek help from a therapist. I’ve decided to dedicate a post about times in your life it might be a good idea for you to find a therapist to talk to.
You might want to schedule an appointment with a therapist if….
- If your feelings are leading you to think about harming yourself or anyone else
- If you can’t function in an area of your life
- If your friends and family have tried to help but they can’t
- If you’ve gone to a therapist before and liked the process but didn’t click with the therapist
- If you want to go on a path of journey and self-discovery
- If you and your significant other are fighting on a regular basis and you need a neutral party
- If you are feeling depressed and anxious and want techniques to help you resolve them
- If you want a better life for yourself but are unsure the steps you can take in order to achieve it
- If you are curious about the process and want to learn more about yourself and others
- If you find yourself really connecting with a therapist you met or have been following on social media
Here are five places you can look for a therapist local to you:
- Psychology Today
- Referrals from your insurance company
- Google search “Find a therapist near me”
- Ask a trusted friend, doctor or colleague for a referral
- Ask me for a referral!
