At some point in our lives, we all feel overwhelmed and may need professional help to deal with our problems in life. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 50 million Americans (even more internationally) need help dealing with problems that feel beyond their control — problems with a marriage or family situation, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, social anxiety or fears, depression, stress, burnout, or even substance abuse. The problems of daily living can at times feel significantly debilitating. And, sometimes we need outside help in order to work through these problems. Every day millions of Americans (of all ages), live healthier, more productive lives with the help of psychotherapy, or personal counseling techniques from a trained, licensed professional.
