I don't want to take medication- is therapy a good choice for me?
Absolutely. While medication can be a wonderful support for some people, it is not an end-all, be-all.
I work with a number of clients who are struggling with issues related to anxiety and depression that do not want to take medications. Depending on the case and the severity, I often collaborate with health coaches, naturopaths, herbalists and acupuncturists to help serve as an adjuntive therapy to your therapy/counseling with me, as needed.
Therapy can be an incredibly healing means in and of itself. Although medication can be warranted when necessary, I strongly believe that therapy can be an alternative route to relief, if not on it's own than in conjunction with medication.
