Wellness Tool #17: Therapy
Therapy is used to help create open and honest communication between you and your therapist to tackle issues that create distress in you. Through this relationship, you can focus on how to manage these stressors and overcome life challenges. I personally enjoy seeing a therapist that works well for me as they support me in seeing things in a new perspective and aids me in my goal of growing into the person that I was meant to be.
