It depends. The American Psychological Association suggests considering therapy when something causes distress and interferes with some part of life, particularly when:

  • Thinking about or coping with the issue takes up at least an hour each day
  • The issue causes embarrassment or makes you want to avoid others
  • The issue has caused your quality of life to decrease
  • The issue has negatively affected school, work, or relationships
  • You’ve made changes in your life or developed habits to cope with the issue

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we invite you to reach out to our counseling team. We offer a free 15 minute consultation so that you can see if you think counseling would be the right fit for you.
