Therapy, as easy as 1, 2, 3
Has someone told you that you need to talk to someone about depression or anxiety? Or maybe you feel like you just cannot seem to get life right. Whatever the reason, we are here to help guide you through the process of counseling for depression and anxiety, as well as other areas of concern.
There are plenty of different ways to find a therapist online, perhaps too many! #InformationOverload, am I right? After all, how do you know who will be the right fit? You can’t discount the importance of the right fit!
1. Identify the Need
Have a general idea of what you need help with! First of all, you need to know what you are searching for counseling for. Common areas of concern include depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, overcoming trauma, dealing with grief, etc. If you are not sure whether you are depressed or anxious, you can learn valuable information about symptoms of depression and anxiety at www.adaa.org (Anxiety and Depression Association of America).
Search for therapists who have experience in the areas that are important to you, such as a particular specialty, gender preference, or location.
2. Get in Touch
Reach out! You can learn more about a practice by making an initial phone call or email. Generally you will give some basic information about yourself (name, email or phone number), as well as why you seeking counseling, which you have already identified in step 1! If you have any questions about how counseling works, you can ask them now too.
3. Pick a Time
Set an appointment! So you found a therapist who may be a good fit? Hooray! Now set up that appointment for an intake session. The first appointment with your new therapist will focus on gathering important information about you and your concern. Before you arrive, you may be asked to fill out paperwork electronically which will help speed up the intake process. Your therapist will ask you more about your background, your family, what you are seeking therapy for as well as signing important documents. In addition, you will have time to ask questions about the treatment process and anything else you’d like to know.
Let’s Get Real
Now, we know therapy IS NOT as easy as 1, 2, 3.
We get it. We know how nerve wracking it is to walk into a place for the first time, not knowing what to expect. Sometimes the drive is easy, but you have made it to the parking lot and that door seems so far away! Taking those steps into a therapist’s office is a very brave thing to do, but we know it can be terrifying. Just know, your therapist expects that! We know you may be a little uneasy and nervous, but it is our job to make this process as smooth for you as we can. A good therapist will help to calm your nerves and put you at ease as best they can. If they don’t- maybe it is not the right fit!
