Ask a Therapist Anything – Part 1 of 3

I recently reached out to family and friends on Social Media giving them the opportunity to “Ask a Therapist Anything”.  In my Blog posts  I strive for as much transparency as possible and try to provide people with a glimpse into the often mysterious/private world of Therapy.  I’ve written about why people decide to go (or not to go) to therapy, benefits of therapy, a little bit about what actually happens in my office, and more.  I wondered, though, what questions people have about therapy that I may not have considered.  The response I got when providing people with the opportunity to ask me anything was great….and I want to go ahead and jump right in to answering the questions.  Although many of my answers are broadly true as it relates to therapy in general, keep in mind that the answers to these questions are from the perspective of one Therapist alone – ME.  Ask the same questions to another Therapist and the answer might be a little bit different. Follow this 3-part series to hear the answer to the question about whether or not I’ve been to therapy myself along with a long list of other questions that I hope you’ll find intriguing. Read more
