Do I Need Therapy?
How am I doing (functioning)?
When wondering if my "stuff" is serious enough to go to therapy, ask yourself just a few simple questions...
Am I satisfied in most areas of my life? Sleep is great, work and finances are great, I'm eating healthily and feeling energized, my relationships are healthy, my mood is regulated, my thoughts are positive and I feel joy and fulfillment regularly!
Obviously this is generalizing many areas, but if you're sensing a decline or serious dip in any area, it's never too small to discuss in therapy.
Am I empowered?
Do I need to learn more about myself (my diagnosis, my medication, my coping skills, my personality, my stress or trauma responses, what delights me, what I fear, my future) to continue on my journey and live my best life? Psychoeducation and psychotherapy is life changing when it unlocks language, understanding, and empowers us to enact the changes we need to improve our lives. Nothing can stop you now!
Do I like me?
I know that's a deep one (core beliefs).
Self-love and self-worth
Healing past and present wounds
Processing family history and past and present dynamics

Personal Growth for Black Women
Personal growth in therapy refers to the transformative process individuals undergo when engaging in therapeutic interventions and self-reflection. Therapy provides a supportive and confidential environment for individuals to explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, gaining a deeper understanding of themselves. Through this introspection, individuals can identify and challenge limiting beliefs, unhealthy patterns, and unresolved traumas. Therapy encourages self-awareness, emotional regulation, and the development of coping strategies, empowering individuals to make positive changes in their lives. It promotes the cultivation of healthy relationships, increased self-esteem, and the acquisition of effective problem-solving skills. Ultimately, personal growth in therapy involves embracing self-discovery, building resilience, and achieving a greater sense of fulfillment and well-being
