Therapy isn’t for “crazy” people, it’s for everyone. Just like going to the doctor or dentist isn’t just for sick people, therapy isn’t just for people with mental illness. We have wellness visits and preventative care for our bodies, why shouldn’t our minds have the same courtesy?
Individual Therapy For Men & Women In Glendora
Therapy Is Normal
Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your body. When your body doesn’t feel quite right, you slow down and figure out what’s wrong. Sometimes, you seek the advice of a doctor, chiropractor, or massage therapist to help you heal. Your mind is no different. Talking with a therapist can help you sort out what’s not going well in your life and give you the tools to make it better.
You might describe what’s happening in one of these ways:
- You’ve felt depressed or anxious lately.
- You’ve pulled away from the people you love.
- You’ve been too busy to do the things you used to enjoy.
- You feel like nothing you do is ever good enough.
- You can’t keep up with all the demands on you.
- You’re emotionally drained.
It’s Time For Self-Care
Self-care is more than massages and vacations. It’s considering your whole self and giving it what it needs to flourish. It’s a lifestyle. Individual therapy is one part of holistic self-care.
In individual therapy, you can focus on yourself. This is the emotional equivalent of “putting the oxygen mask on yourself first.” You are your best self when you are mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. Individual counseling helps you sort out how you want to live your life. Feeling stressed out, anxious, and depressed are symptoms of the problem. Therapy helps you get to the root of the problem and gives you new strategies for dealing with it.
Individual Counseling With Heather Seguin
I help people who feel overwhelmed and discontent reconnect with meaning in their lives. When you find yourself just “going through the motions,” repeating the same bad relationship, or just feeling stressed out, I can help.
Counseling is a great place to unravel the tangles in your life and sort out what really matters. That’s my approach to counseling; you are the expert of you. My role is to help you see things from new angles, examine how things got to be the way they are, and discover other ways to deal with things that bother you. I create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to be honest about what you really want in your life and start taking the steps to make it happen.
