Visiting this website probably means you are thinking about reaching out for help. Maybe it is because you feel overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, frustrated or stressed out. Any of these feelings can have a strong impact on the main areas of your life, such as work, relationships, drinking too much, spending too much money, parenting, sex life, or turning to other unhealthy outlets. To make matters worse, you may try to talk to your significant other, friends, or close family members but they seem to pass judgment or say that you are wrong for how you are feeling. So instead of feeling better, you now feel all alone because no one understands.
Taking the first step toward therapy can be scary. Many people fear that if they see a therapist it must mean there is something seriously wrong with them, or if anyone found out they would see you as being “crazy.” This is known as the stereotype or “stigma” that has become attached to seeking help for problems. However, the fact is that many “normal” people, including therapists themselves, go to therapy. Over the past decade the stereotypes of seeking therapeutic assistance have drastically diminished. More and more people, and especially men, are seeking the services of a therapist for assistance.
A trusting relationship with a therapist can offer the assistance needed to work through what you are feeling, how to cope with stress, possibly help you discover solutions for your problems, and stop the feeling that you are all alone because no one understands. The staff at First Light Psychological Services is committed to forming non-judgmental and trusting relationships with all our clients, and most importantly, work in your best interest.
