Understanding Talk Therapy

Chances are unless you’ve personally been to therapy yourself, you have a few misconceptions about what therapy is and how it can benefit you and your life.

Working with a therapist is different than venting to your friends and family because a therapist can provide you with an unbiased perspective.

Moreover, talk therapy isn’t just “talking about your problems,” it’s also about working toward solutions. Each thought you’ve had and action you’ve taken is a chain reaction sparked by a trigger. These thoughts and actions become patterns. When you don’t notice these patterns and don’t take steps to intervene, you can face long-term mental health consequences.

I wanted to create a resource that could help people gain a better understanding of what therapy is and how it can make your life better; that’s why I created my How Therapy Helps Email Series Email Series.

Wellness is not just management of disease, but rather it involves a balance of the mind, body and spirit with nutrition, exercise, and mental wholeness. N2U Nutrition and Wellness combines Family Medicine and Functional Medicine to help people achieve their wellness goal. I am excited! The practice is a vision that came about out of a need to be better—a better physician who seeks to prevent disease and treat the cause…. a better person to myself by slowing down my pace to improve my own health and longevity… a better daughter, sister, and mother because I am present. Let's work together for a better you!

You Deserve to Live A Happy Life

The mind is a complicated, scary, magnificent, and powerful thing, and we still have a lot to learn about how it works. What we do know is that the state of our mental health can impact everything from our relationships to our physical health and influence every aspect of our life and the way we see the world around us.

To try and navigate through your mental health on your own is possible, but also tricky, especially if you’re currently struggling.

While therapy doesn’t “fix” you (since you are not “broken”), working with a therapist will give you the tools and strategies you need to feel more comfortable in your own skin, feel more motivated to reach your goals, and develop strong and meaningful relationships with people in your life.

Although it might not always feel like it, the world is a wonderful place filled with lots to be grateful for. If you’re ready to take the first step to learn more about how you might benefit from working with a therapist, don’t miss out on this resource.
