Heal

 

I believe that healing is possible no matter what the wound. Every person has the capacity for resilience and healing. Sometimes, we just need a little bit of help to find it. The tools on this page are here to help you assess different areas of your life that may be in need of some healing. 

Is it time to see a therapist?
 

 

  • You are concerned about behaviors you continue to do.

  • The behavior or feelings have gotten worse over the last several weeks or months.

  • You've tried to stop or reduce the behavior or feeling on your own, but struggle to do so.

  • You rely on your partner, family, or friends to "fix" or manage your current problems.

  • Everything feels intense.

  • Coping is becoming harder and harder.

  • You're having trouble concentrating on tasks or at work or school.

  • You've suffered from trauma and:

    • It keeps replaying or you are experiencing flashbacks.

    • You find it hard to feel safe.

    • You are on constant alert.

    • You find it difficult to trust others.

    • You are experiencing nightmares.

  • You are having unexplained physical symptoms like stomach / digestive issues, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, or muscle tension, that has no medical basis.

  • You're coping with your issues by using alcohol, prescription meds like opioids or benzodiazepines, marijuana or other drugs, sex, pornography, over-eating, restricting food intake, over-exercising, shopping, gambling, or other external behaviors.

  • You don't enjoy activities you once enjoyed.

  • Your relationships are strained.

  • Friends or family members have expressed concern for your well-being.

  • You find yourself in a rut or a loop of the same thinking, feeling, or behavior.

  • You feel perpetually overwhelmed and don't want to face the day.

  • You think, "I wish it would all be over. I wish I wasn't here."

 

If any one of the above statements rings true for you, then it is time to seek help from a licensed professional therapist. 

 

The good news: You can heal. It is 100% possible and available for you. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to find the right person to help guide you in the healing process, so if you've tried therapy before and think, "it doesn't work for me," do not fear! There are about as many different types of effective therapies as there are therapists, and it's likely you just had a wrong fit.
