Therapy Sucks

It’s true. Sometimes therapy can be a royal pain in the ass! There are times when it can feel frustrating, painful, slow, and uncertain.

There are times when you'll feel like you're traveling through new terrain but unsure where it'll lead.

There are even times when you'll find any excuse to not go - any excuse at all.

But do you know what sucks even more than therapy?!

  • Having the same relationship problems day after day, month after month, and year after year when it does NOT have to be that way
  • Suffering alone and feeling like you have no one to turn to
  • Taking advice from well-meaning but completely misguided friends and family in place of getting the real help you need
  • Letting your relationships suffer needlessly because you haven't put in the care and attention that will yield the rewards you want
  • Going through life making poor decisions and drifting from one unsuccessful relationship after another because you haven’t yet learned your own self-worth and true value

Yes, it’s true. There are times when therapy sucks. But there are also times when it is powerful, eye-opening, and transformative!

Times when you’ll be incredibly grateful and proud for making the investment in yourself and in your relationships. Times when you really enjoy the process and even have fun along the way!

And times when you can’t imagine getting through the messiness of life without it.

Relationships are hard. But changing them doesn’t have to be.

When you’re ready to take the first step, I’ll be here. Whether you need couples therapy or individual therapy, help is just a click away.

One thought on “Therapy Sucks

  1. I strongly disagree with this article. I find that therapy doesn’t work 99 percent of the time., not only for me, but for everyone else. To me, it’s just not worth the time and the money spent.

    I find out that 99 percent of the time, counseling is geared for long term issues, when you need short term help.

    When you need help right now, long term counseling just isn’t going to cut it. I am in that situation right now.

    The costs involved, as most therapy sessions costs a ton of money, plus time lost, aren’t worth it either.

    And sadly, many if not most psychiatrists will force you into counseling, and if you don’t agree to it, then refuse to give you any medicine.

    And in my small town, I only have one choice “one size fits all” counselor, and if you don’t like her, well it’s “too bad” if you will.

    I know I will get blowback for this comment. Just my experiences.
