How do you know if your problems are "big" enough for online therapy?
When considering mental health services, there is no need to question or worry about whether your problems are “big” enough to warrant it. Everyone can benefit from mental health support at times throughout their lives, and it can be helpful to think of emotional wellness as just another aspect of your overall health that you should monitor and maintain. Just as you visit a dentist or doctor for regular check‑ups and non‑urgent needs, your mental health benefits from proactive and regular attention. Keep in mind that therapy does not have to be a long‑term commitment; some people benefit from one or two sessions while others may be best helped by a longer course of treatment.
