Feeling Comfortable in Therapy

You may be reluctant to see a therapist because you aren’t sure if you will feel comfortable. That is a natural concern. Most people considering therapy are in a vulnerable state—something is bothering them, upsetting them, or causing them distress. It might be the first time you have spoken about your issue to anyone. Maybe you were raised in a family that discouraged talking about emotional issues even within the family. Or perhaps your family discourages talking about problems outside of the family, which can make your decision to come to therapy, a tough one.


The therapists at NSTN are attuned to all of these possibilities and the importance of creating a caring, nonjudgmental space. They extend warmth and compassion and help you ease into sharing at a pace and degree that is right for you.
