Having someone tell you that you “need therapy” can feel stigmatizing, and sort of like an attack — like something is wrong with you. While therapy can actually be extremely beneficial in helping people walk through their issues and become better equipped to face their challenges, some are hesitant to give it a shot. It may take some time for you to feel comfortable with the thought of going to therapy, and perhaps even a little bit longer for you to actually start scheduling sessions. After all, it does take a level of braveness to sit and be vulnerable with yourself.
When any type of mental health or emotional concern affects daily life and function, therapy may be recommended because it can help you learn what you’re feeling, what you might be feeling, and how to cope with it. My name is Dr. Shea Kamlet and I offer a variety of services, including individual therapy in Denver, relationship therapy, Hakomi therapy, and mindfulness and meditation.
