Your getting help will increase your mood and ability to participate in your daily activities. It is only not important, but will help your overall wellbeing and feeling of self-worth and happiness.
While in therapy, we will work with treatment modalities that fits best for you. That may include mindfulness, play therapy, art therapy, talk therapy (including CBT and DBT), and EMDR when appropriate. Your seeking therapy is a true sign of your inner strength, and it is a privilege for me to work with you on your journey. Your taking the first step to enter therapy is the most important step.
