Why Go to a Therapist?

You are here:
Talk to therapist

Most people want to go to a therapist because they need someone to talk to. A therapist is nonjudgmental, objective, and present. These days, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and stressed out. Seeing a therapist can help.

I love this quote from T.M. Williams’ book, Black Pain:

I’m strong enough to ask for help
To keep me real and honest with myself about how I’m doing
To keep me from acting out my feelings
So worries don’t bring me down
To talk to a caring yet objective person about things I can’t talk to anyone else about.

Take a look at how you feel.

If you need someone to talk to, try finding a therapist.
