Illustrations about Going to Therapy

Even if you’ve read a lot about therapy or heard friends talk about going to therapy, psychotherapy can seem fairly mysterious and possibly overwhelming. For individuals reaching out to connect with a therapist for the first time, navigating therapy can seem like swimming in a sea of unknown. Even simple questions like how to start therapy can feel like a tremendous task. For some people, this foreignness can contribute to delaying or not getting the care they know they need.

There are many different types of therapy, and different therapists have different approaches. Above all, it is important to find a therapist who you feel comfortable with, and who you feel is best suited to help you with your specific difficulties. 

In this section, I’ve collected resources meant to help demystify therapy, therapists, and the therapeutic process- so we can all get a little more comfortable thinking about, talking about, and getting the care we need.
