A great question. If you're thinking of seeing a therapist but are not sure whether therapy is right for you, here are some questions that may help you decide:

  • Is there some part of your life that is not going well, some way in which you feel "stuck" or unable to move forward?
  • Is something going on in your life that is causing you great distress or emotional pain?
  • Does your life feel out of control?
  • Do you feel angry all the time or sad all the time?
  • Do you feel numb, that your life is just humdrum or "blah"?
  • Are your relationships with family, friends, or coworkers a constant source of frustration?
  • Have you had a major loss (such as a death, divorce, separation, or job loss) and you feel you just can't get back on your feet?
  • Do you have difficulty sleeping?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, it is likely that you could benefit from therapy or counseling.
