SEEKING THERAPY

 I’m here to help, not to judge.”

             Success in therapy is directly related to your commitment and willingness to work.  The more you put into it, the more you get out of it.  Joy is here to help guide your progress.  She listens, she understand, she cares.

It can be therapeutic simply to finally express pent-up thoughts, problems, and feelings to someone who is willing to listen and who understands.  Therapy works.  Research shows that people in therapy tend to have lower levels of anxiety and stress, less conflict, improved quality of life, and fewer medical problems.  Their relationships improve, as does their productivity in work.

People come to therapy for many reasons.  Sometimes it’s about long-standing personal issues, or specific symptoms of anxiety or depression.  Other times it’s in response to unexpected changes in life such as a divorce or relationship problem.  Working with a therapist can provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges.

Joy is here to help you do the work you’ve identified.  She cannot do the work for your, nor can she solve your problems.  Therapists guide you in learning to solve your own problems effectively or to understand those things that are beyond your control.  You and Joy will work as a team, and your input will be sought every step of the way.  Be sure to say something if she’s not giving you the kind of help you want.  Discuss it with her so that problem can be solved and won’t interfere with reaching your overall goals.
