  • 4. What types of topics can you work on in therapy?
    Therapy can include a range of focus areas including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, sleep concerns, coping with work stress, relationship concerns, and many more.
  • 5. What is therapy like?
    Therapy focuses on your goals and needs. The provider will start by learning about you and developing a plan for treatment with you. Therapy often includes learning new ways to manage painful thoughts and feelings and practicing them with the provider’s help. Most people attend therapy more frequently in the beginning and then less often as they develop expertise in using the skills consistently outside of therapy.
  • 6. How do you know what kind of mental health service you need?
    Mental health treatment begins with an assessment of your healthcare needs. Part of the clinician’s job is to provide recommendations for the types of care with the best likelihood of helping you to meet treatment goals or improve how you are feeling.
  • 7. Are these services just for people with serious symptoms or needs?
    No. In fact, it’s best to consider seeking care early before symptoms or stressful situations become overwhelming. People are often able to develop skills and realistic plans to prevent worsening symptoms.
  • 8. My friend or family member really needs care but won’t go. What can I do?
    This is a tough situation because no one wants to see their loved one suffer. Here is a great read on this topic:
  • 9. I think my child would benefit from mental health care and I also want to support participation in after-school activities. What can I do?
    This is a great question to discuss with your child’s provider. Many people are able to balance both needs. Occasionally, mental health needs take priority for short periods of time to ensure safety - just like if your child had a physical injury or illness. One major goal of mental health treatment is to support full engagement in important activities.
  • 10. What if I don’t get along with my provider?
    It’s ok to talk to them directly about this. Most clinicians welcome this feedback because their goal is to support you, even if that means they are not the right fit.
