Most people who are looking for therapy are concerned in some way with personal stress and how to cope effectively with it. The stress can be related to challenging relationships, work problems, physical problems, self-doubt, and many others. In addition, people often find themselves dealing with identity issues. Common questions addressed in therapy are:
- Do I really want to get married (or stay married)?
- How can I move forward with my career?
- What am I missing out on?
- What is my sexual orientation and how can I deal with it?
- Why do I have trouble getting along with certain people?
- How can I reduce uncomfortable "symptoms" (like poor sleep, fearful avoidance of certain situations, general anxiety and worry, feelings of panic, procrastination habits, reliance on substances, overeating, etc.)?
