If you're considering going to therapy for the first time, it's only natural to have some concerns: What exactly happens in the room? Do I have to talk about my childhood?? Will it even help me???
Those concerns certainly came up for me when I decided to start therapy for my anxiety a few years ago. Even though I knew it was the right thing to do for my mental health, I had doubts about whether the experience would really benefit me and worried about how the sessions would make me feel. Now that I've seen how incredibly healing therapy can be, I'm hoping to shine some truth on the misconceptions that often fuel a person's stress about beginning the process.
