Therapists at the Empowering Connections Agency use psychoeducation and science to help folks normalize issues that are typical reactions to the situations each client is in and highlight the abnormalities that can be improved. When people are struggling, they often have a lot of core beliefs about themselves based on insecurities or other harmful feelings rather than facts. Then, most people start their own research about their problems which can be like opening a can of worms. 


There are many myths attached to mental health issues, and it can be really difficult to know whom to trust. Some resolve their problems with their own research and self-help strategies, but others need a professional. 

A therapist helps you guide you through your current understanding of your problems and then can give you feedback about your blind spots. All that is required is your honesty and willingness to do the work. 

Regardless of the issue that brings you into individual psychotherapy, the most important aspect affecting your results is the therapeutic relationship between yourself and your therapist. Sometimes this takes a while to find, but do not get discouraged! There are many experienced therapists that are curious to get to know you on a genuine level. They also maintain professional boundaries that keep you safe to explore your deepest insecurities. The intimate level of trust-building required to have this type of therapeutic relationship is transferrable to your personal relationships.
