Standard psychotherapy involves lots (and lots) of talking.
This can be useful, necessary, and well… very therapeutic.
But we may not need to dredge up pain from the past,
just to function better TODAY.
Plus, if you’re a BIPOC, LBGTQ+, or other underserved community member,
with the shortage of therapists that see the world like you…
it might be tough to find one who can relate to your experience anyway.
Don’t get us wrong:
Therapy is great and NECESSARY
when we need to talk through WHY we do something.
Or we need a deep dive into the past.
Or we need to “vent and lament,” like we all sometimes do.
But when you’re not preoccupied with the past, and just want
self realization and ACTION steps for tangible growth?
Talk therapy misses the mark.
