Did you think some of these thoughts about therapy before?
Once I begin going to therapy, I’ll have to go forever.

The Life-changing and Positive Benefits That Therapy Can Bring.
Few people have had these same ideas, but they’re not right! And worse, these misconceptions prevent people from having the life-changing and positive benefits that therapy can bring.
Therapy is a scientifically proven method that informs you how your mind works. It helps you build better behaviors, navigate your feelings, and relate to your thoughts differently so you can live the life you want. Therapists who use clinically validated techniques like CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy work with you to set purposes, track progress, and measure results. They teach you skills to build emotional resilience so you can eventually leave therapy and manage on your own. Therapy is a high value but a temporary investment in yourself.
