Does my child/adolescent really need therapy? We can usually handle our problems.
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting your child/marriage/family is at a critical point and by making a commitment to initiate change. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving tools needed to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and to develop strategies for whatever challenges you, your children or family.
