Therapy is a great resource to anyone seeking to improve their well being. Often there can be a misconception that therapy is only for those with mental health concerns or people who have reached some kind of rock bottom. But actually, therapy has been proven to benefit various areas of concern. The beautiful thing about therapy is that it can be customized to fit your specific needs. Everyone goes through difficult times and therapy can serve as your support system when life becomes a little too difficult to deal with alone. Although these benefits exist, the choice to start therapy is ultimately yours. Only you can decide if counseling is the right decision for you.
A Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) is trained to work with individuals, couples, & families. Each method of therapy truly requires its own mastery and an MFT’s training focuses on bringing awareness to the different skills needed when working with an individual, couple, or family. The goal is to be mindful of these key differences in order to connect with everyone attending the session. MFT’s also practice systemically, which means that we consider the system as a whole in relation to the problem. If you think about it, the concerns you experience not only affect you, but they also affect your family, partner, children, friends, co-workers, etc. MFT’s aim is to explore the aspects of your individual concerns and how they relate to the relationship you have with yourself and others.
It is recommended that you look for a therapist that understands and respects your values. You deserve to spend your time, effort, and money on someone that takes their time to listen to your needs. It is also recommended to look for a therapist that is a good fit for you. Therapy is an investment and you should select someone that you can connect with. Initial phone consultations are a great opportunity for you to get a feel of whether or not the connection is there. If a therapist that you are interested in working with offers phone consultations, take advantage of it. If they do not, ask for one! You should be able to speak to a potential fit before scheduling an appointment.
