Reasons to Seek Support
Contemplating Mental Health Support??
Wondering how you start the process?
Find a support network – therapist, coach, dietitian, medical providers – who are motivated and educated on how to energize you every step of your journey.
Unsure if you really need therapy or coaching?
Here are the top four topics that are so, so worth processing with a provider and just a few of the major themes I see.
1. Social Media
Feeling like you’re on social media too much?
Noticing that you’ feel extra down after a long scrolling session?
Believing that someone else’s life is better than yours?
The rise and growing significance of social media has caused an influx of mental health concerns, such as low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. Now is the time to start paying attention to how social media is influencing your life choices and mental health.
Discussing social media with a provider can also help you re-prioritize your use and rediscover ways you want to interact with the world!
2. Relationships & Self-Love
Single? Engaged? Married? Divorced?
No matter what stage of the relationship life cycle that you are in, having a third party to speak to about your relationship can greatly increase your satisfaction and overall happiness.
Working with a provider allows you to process interpersonal conflicts, learn how to communicate more effectively, and ensure that you are making your self-respect a top priority.
Feel like your relationship is already strong and stable?
Awesome! And… I still encourage you to consider a few couples sessions as every couple has room to grow deeper. I even know a colleague who always gives couples therapy as a wedding present!
3. Body Image and Eating Disorder Concerns
Today’s society and media culture can make everyone – those with and without diagnosed eating disorders – feel insecure about their body and food choices.
Taking time to learn how to love yourself – internally and externally – and better nourish your soul is one of the best investments you can make.
4. Major Life Transitions
Finishing school? Starting a new career? Taking a gap year? Planning a wedding? Having children? Moving?
Going through any of these major milestones without support can be extra exhausting. Finding someone to process, navigate, and teach you coping tools to manage the changes and stress is such a valuable gift to give yourself.
Who makes a strong support network?
Friends and loved ones who are positive influences
Primary care doctors who practice a holistic approach
Therapists who specialize in the areas you want to process
Dietitians who prioritize teaching you to love your body vs. weight loss
Fitness instructors who encourage you to be proud of what your body is capable of
And don’t forget, it’s never too late to start learning how to discover your authentic self, and living the life you’ve always dreamed of!!
