Find a therapist that resonates with you. Base your choice on the connection to the person rather than insurance or cost, Your return on investment will be much higher when you enjoy the person you're working with.
Show up as you are, no matter what that may look like. Weekly consistency is important for creating momentum and achieving your goals.
You have the microphone. The point of therapy is to use it. Discuss what your experience of life is in a space without judgement. Speak your genuine thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Thrive in authenticity.
Therapy can often feel uncomfortable. Learn to tolerate discomfort by utilizing techniques to help navigate growth spurts. Ask your therapist about grounding and resourcing skills.
Therapy is for processing your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Reflecting on the therapeutic process allows you to implement what you learn in your day-to-day life.
You found a new way to therapy! Make sure to acknowledge your efforts and have gratitude for every messy, awkward step of your experience.
