If you feel like you just need it to be about you for awhile, and you need to think through and process, and get your handle on what’s going on, and wrap our brain around, “What is going on now and how do I move forward?” psychotherapy can provide an opportunity to do that. It doesn’t have to be about a major depression, it doesn’t have to be about drinking yourself into a coma. What it is about is the opportunity to say “How do I make adjustments?” And, “How can someone else looking from the outside help me fine-tune or recognize the strength I have to move forward.”
