People seek counseling for a wide variety of reasons. These can include struggles with Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and numerous other mental, emotional and behavioral issues. Influences such as loneliness, abuse, grief, stress, genetics, chemical imbalances and any type of life crisis can lead to serious mental health problems. Even physical illness like diabetes, heart disease and cancer may trigger major depressive disorder.
Experiencing these and other disorders is not your fault any more than contracting a virus or a disease. Furthermore, having therapy is not an indication of weakness. On the contrary, it takes courage and strength to take that step. Regardless of how hopeless you may feel, please know you are not alone and that healing is within reach.
