I don’t like to bother other people with my problems. Shouldn’t I be able to help myself?

Sadly, seeing a therapist is often associated with dependency and weakness. Nothing is further from the truth. In fact, it takes great courage and humility to face your problems head on. Therapy is a journey of change and self discovery and you are in charge of that journey. The therapist will assist you in clarifying your thoughts and feelings and provide you with helpful tools and feedback, but you will make your own choices. The goal of therapy is to help you gain independence and decision making power over yourself and your behavior.
