I’ve been asked over the 17 years that have been a therapist, “what is the main reason that people come to see you in therapy?” While I believe that they expect a gritty answer regarding “affairs,” “addictions”, or other seemingly deep seated problem, the answer really is “communication.” For couples, it’s the lack of communication about sex, emotional safety, or how to achieve the closeness both desperately desire. For teens, it’s the lack of being able to communicate what their needs or desires are to their parents. To be heard. To be understood. For men and women, it’s the person they’re dating. The relationship that just seems to be going nowhere effectively. Or the boss that seems so unapproachable to discuss that raise or promotion they believe they’ve earned.
Your success in therapy likely has much to do with whether you’re ready to contact our offices. Ready doesn’t necessarily mean comfortable. Ready doesn’t mean excited with the thought of being in therapy. Ready often means that you’re tired of living a life that seems overwhelming. Perhaps even a bit dreadful. It lacks excitement or passion. A life that you don’t want to be living in 5 years, let alone one year from today. If this describes you, then counseling could very well be ready for you.
Whether it’s your marriage, your job, or your family that’s taking you out of your best self, I would love to have the opportunity to assist you in taking back your life.
