What are the benefits of Therapy?

Therapy can provide an environment to problem-solve, discuss and practice coping skills and strategies to deal with different concerns, including: depression, anxiety, PTSD, difficult life transitions, grieving, sexual assault, human and/or man made disasters, dealing with racism, discrimination, the intersection of identities, and more. Therapy can provide a supportive environment to process trauma and disturbing life events.
