Seeking Therapy

When life changes unexpectedly, it can be very difficult for individuals to transition into a new way of being.  Everyone has plans and dreams for their lives and it is normal to feel lost when these dreams do not come into reality.  However, how do you know when this situation (or multiple situations) becomes too much for you to cope with?  Listed below are several red flags for you to examine in yourself.  If you are experiencing life transitions that are too overwhelming for you to handle, please consider if psychotherapy is something for you to pursue.  Therapy can help you work through your distress in your personal life, your life at work, your social life, and your spiritual life.  It is an additional resource to help you through life’s unplanned shifts.


Here are some common indicators that therapy may be helpful for you and your family:

  • Difficulty getting out of bed
  • Noticeable increase or decrease in weight
  • Significant loss of energy
  • Isolating yourself from others
  • Depressed mood most of the day
  • Lack of interest in any activities you previously enjoyed
  • Inability to sleep or sleeping for longer periods of time than you previously did
  • Feelings of worthlessness/hopelessness
  • Thoughts of death for yourself or others
