Therapy Myths

Published on December 7th, 2018

For many, the stereotypes surrounding going to a therapist are enough to keep them away. Unfortunately, these misconceptions are exactly that: stereotypes. As providers of mental health treatment in Minnesota, we feel it is our duty to debunk many of the myths that keep potential patients away that could see life-changing benefits from therapy. Plus, as 2018 comes to a close, now is the perfect time to commit to becoming a happier, healthier version of yourself in 2019 and beyond.

Your Issues Must be Serious to See a Therapist

Many people think that their issue(s) are not serious enough to seek guidance from a therapist. Quite the opposite is true. The degree to which you are struggling is always relative. Yes, therapy is beneficial for getting through some of life’s toughest moments, but it is also useful for those who want to take time for themselves and work through hiccups such as transitions, relationships problems, career issues and more.

You are Paying for a Friend

Our providers of mental health treatment in Minnesota are trained and objective professionals. When you turn to a friend for help, they will offer biased opinions and advice. Therapists are helpful because they are unbiased, and they provide you with confidentiality standards as well. Your therapist will work with you to help set and achieve goals as well.

Therapy Has to Be Forever

The amount of time that you spend in therapy is completely up to you. Once you realize it is beneficial, you may choose to make it part of your life permanently. But people also see therapists for the short-term as well.

Seeking mental health treatment in Minnesota is a sign of strength, not weakness! Call us today to get started.
