Mental health therapy, also referred to as counseling or psychotherapy, is a collaborative process between you and a mental health professional where you learn how to live your best life. Therapists offer structured time to focus on you, an objective, unbiased look into your life goals, and new insights to help you grow. Read more about therapy.
You can use therapy as a way to learn more about yourself and grow as a person. You don't have to have a severe mental illness or have experienced a significant loss in your life to benefit from mental health therapy. Therapy can help you improve a relationship with someone, understand your anxiety, break a bad habit, or become more comfortable with who you are or what you look like. Read more about how therapy can help you.
There are five criteria you should consider when looking for a counselor or therapist: competence, cultural fit, personality, convenience, and affordability. Read more about these criteria and what to look for in a therapist.
