I have a great support system. Why do I need to talk to a therapist?

Having a strong support system is crucial to living your best life, but it doesn’t mean therapy won’t be beneficial. The reason therapy is helpful is because you dedicate time to unload and unpack your feelings and then you get to leave it and not worry about having to go to a meeting with us, have dinner with us, or hang out, and know that everything you shared will stay in that room. You won’t have to worry about sharing the conversation with another person, as the time is dedicated entirely to you, and what is happening in your life. Sometimes our loved ones can be a source of stress, and we may not feel comfortable sharing the details of our personal relationships with other friends/family for fear of judgment, and because we need an opportunity to vent freely.
