Therapy can be helpful for anyone.
We get it. Life is demanding. You work hard. You care for others. You know you can do more and you're tired of feeling like less. You want change and are unsure of where to start. Therapy can help.When we think of therapy, we often imagine ourselves laying on a couch in a stuffy office, while we answer probing questions about our childhood memories and the therapist takes cryptic notes. At Shift, the reality is much different because we put your needs first and start wherever is right for you.
Therapy is a good thing anytime.
People tend to start therapy when they are undergoing some kind of emotional difficulty stemming from, for example, a traumatic event or a major life change. However, therapy can be helpful even in the good times as a way to build resilience.Therapy is proven to increase your happiness, improve your motivation, and help you to better understand yourself and the world around you. Therapy will help you to manage your stress, reduce your anxiety, and will assist you in setting goals for the future. As we often say, “Therapy is a good thing anytime.” Therapy can be a short (dealing with immediate issues) or long-term (addressing significant or ongoing issues) process.
Therapy is best when it's like talking with a trusted friend.
That's why we carefully match you with a skilled therapist that can support you in working towards your goals. Together you will explore and identify your emotions and patterns of thinking, bring a new perspective to the challenges that you are experiencing, develop new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing, and help you to find a new sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in your life. Your therapist is a stabilizing support in the tough times and your cheerleader in the good times.
Therapy evolves over time — just like you.
As you grow and enter new phases of your life, your needs from therapy will change. Many of our clients join us as young professionals and seek out different kinds of care as they navigate relationship challenges, parenting, career growth or grief stemming from a loss.At Shift, our team of therapists work closely together to ensure the most appropriate and skilled therapist is there for you when you need it. In practice, this might look like you having a primary therapist for the majority of your sessions, who may suggest you see a specialist in a specific area for a period of time.
