When is the best time to see a therapist?

"There's a lot going on in my life."

"I'm going through a breakup."

"I have a lot of stress that I'm not sure how to deal with."

"I'm feeling overwhelmed."

Sound familiar? It's okay, I get these messages all the time. 

We have a lot going on in our lives!

SO WHEN IT IS TIME TO SEE A THERAPIST?

One of the most common questions I receive is "something happened in my life, should I see a therapist?"

Absolutely! If something is going on, reach out for help.

There's never a "right" or "best" time to seek support.

And you for sure don't have to be experiencing a catastrophic event or in crisis to make that phone call. People see a therapist for many reasons!

Let's talk about the more not-so-obvious reasons why my clients come to see me...

THE LESSER-TALKED-ABOUT REASONS PEOPLE SEEK THERAPY

  • family history of mental health issues
  • disproportionate anger or rage
  • feeling overwhelmed or apathetic
  • socially withdrawn
  • changes in your life
  • something is keeping you up at night or nagging at you
  • constant feeling that something is "wrong"
  • pain or other symptoms that aren't attributed to medical/physical issues
  • encouragement from family, friends or your doctor to talk to someone

That list is not all-inclusive. I'd encourage you to err on the side of caution..

Don't let anything fester in your mind or gather the power to spin out of control.

If something is on your mind, there's probably a reason.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Only about 40% of people who struggle with mental health see a therapist. When things are left untreated, unsaid or you try to ignore something that's bothering you, there's a chance it can spiral out of control or get "worse." You have to take care of your mental health just like you do your physical health.

Ultimately, if you're ever thinking about something more than you'd like to be, ask for help.
