Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with an eating disorder, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
It takes strength to ask for help.
You do not have to do this alone - there are people who care.
Many hesitate to reach out for help even though they know it’s easier and better than going it alone. It’s just embedded into our culture that we should “pull ourselves up by our bootstraps!” But, research has shown that people need authentic and real relationships with other people in order to fully heal and truly grow.
Friends and family can’t always help us feel better. This is because they are too close to the problem. Therefore, they don’t have the benefit of an outsider’s perspective. Also, they have their own needs and wants to consider. And, they don’t have the training and education to know what has been found to be effective in working with different types of problems.
A therapeutic relationship is special. This is because the therapist’s goal is the same as yours – to deeply understand what’s happening for you. This can help you have more meaningful relationships, find more success at the things that matter to you, and cultivate genuine peace of mind.
At Monarch Wellness and Psychotherapy, we work hard to create a place where you can be real and honest. Our therapists are people, too, and they don’t try to pretend otherwise. We get how hard life can be. We understand the so-called “crazy” things that people do in order to deal with it, and we know the most effective ways to help. Please do reach out to us at 202-656-3681 to start the conversation.
