When to Seek Therapy

Life brings challenges. While the joys and stresses of life are common to every person, we don’t all react the same way to the same things. Many people experience emotional and physical difficulties when faced with serious challenges such as: life-threatening illnesses or accidents, changes in marital status, the death of a loved one, financial problems, family struggles, or ongoing issues related to the workplace or school. When these problems occur thoughts of contentment and happiness seem more elusive than ever. Family and friends may step up with well-meant help or advice, but their help may not to be enough and can, in fact, do more harm than good. If you find that you are “stuck” and need help, turning to someone with the right educational background, training, experience and commitment can make a real difference. Turn to Dr. Valerie Macleod.

  • Anger
