Counseling. Therapy. Counselor. Therapist. Whatever terms you choose, they can both be very scary. Anyone going to see a stranger and sharing their deepest fears, failures, and hopes sounds like something scary. Most people are VERY nervous coming to therapy for the first time...actually...most are nervous the first few times they come to therapy.
Guess what? That's completely normal.
Give yourself the chance to not only FEEL better but BE better. Take the chance and reach out for help. You deserve this.
