8 Signs It’s time to See a Counselor

Whether it’s one particular area of your life, or the combination of everything together, therapy is something everyone can access to get the tools and the skills needed to live a stronger life. Most people think you need a specific mental illness to benefit from therapy. The truth is that stress, anxiety, or even just feeling overwhelmed are all things a counseling center in Las Vegas can help with.

Not sure therapy is right for you? Here are 8 signs it’s time to see a therapist at Kayenta Therapy.

1. Intense Feelings

While a full range of emotions is normal, being overcome with rage, sadness, anxiety, or only being able to see the worst in every situation isn’t something you have to live with.

2. Life Struggles

Life comes with struggles that we all face. However, there can be certain circumstances such as breakups, loss of a job or the death of a loved one where the grief can be long-lasting and get in the way of your health. A counseling center can help you find ways to experience these feelings in a healthy way so you can stay engaged with your best life.

3. Unexplained Physical Problems

Chronic headaches, stomach aches, a diminished sex drive, and aches and pains your doctor cannot seem to find a cause for may be linked to stress or other emotional sources. Not every unexplained physical problem is caused by mental health issues but a therapist may be able to give you additional answers your primary care doctor couldn’t.

4. Substance Use

Even if you don’t consider yourself an addict, if you feel like you need a drink or medication to cope with the everyday, a therapist will give you healthier, long-lasting alternatives. If you find yourself turning to food for comfort, or avoiding food when you’re stressed, we can help.

5. Difficulty at Work

Adults spend most of their time at work. If you’re not as productive as you used to be or you’re consistently receiving poor feedback, a therapist can help you get to the bottom of the problem.

6. Loss of Interest

Our tastes change over the years. What was exciting and fun at 21 might be exhausting and chaotic at 40. On the other hand, if you’re suddenly uninterested in a favorite hobby or you’re avoiding social gatherings you once enjoyed, there might be more to the story.

7. Strained Relationships

If relationships–from partners to parents to children–seems harder than it should be or if you’re having trouble explaining how you feel or what you need, therapy can help. Individual counseling can help you identify problems and family therapy can help bring families back together.

8. Concern from Others

If your friends and family are frequently concerned about your well-being, take them seriously. Other people in our lives can often spot things we are blind to.
