Is Counseling or Therapy Right for Me?

Counseling or Therapy in Lafayette Indiana is about working though life’s problems. You might be thinking that you can handle all of these problems yourself. Well, most of us need someone to bounce ideas off of.

This is even more helpful when that person is someone who is impartial, outside of the situation, and does not have an emotional investment in you. If you rely on friends, they will likely not tell you how it is because of fear that they will offend you!

So, you might be wondering if you have to be mentally ill in order to go to counseling. Not at all. Most of the people who come to see me are not mentally ill. Rather, the people who come to counseling are those who feel like they need some guidance, consultation, or education on a particular subject (often something related to how to manage teenagers, anger, anxiety or sexuality).
