Finding a therapist- a good thing?

The word “therapy” can conjure up images of someone lying on a couch while a therapist listens on. This is not the case. The therapist office is a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings with a mental health professional. Unfortunately, there is a stigma that people who are in therapy must have a mental illness. This is not necessarily true. Therapy is for anyone seeking to gain insight and clarity into their own lives.
