Phoenix Deerhawke M.Couns. Psychologist
Life can be challenging.
At times we need outside help from a trained, licensed professional in order to work through these challenges. Through therapy, psychologists help people of all ages live healthier, more productive lives.
Consider Therapy If…
You feel an overwhelming and prolonged sense of helplessness and sadness and your problems do not seem to get better despite your efforts and help from family and friends.
You are finding it difficult to carry out everyday activities. For example, you are unable to concentrate on assignments at work and your job performance is suffering as a result.
You worry excessively, expect the worst, or are constantly on edge.
Your actions are harmful to yourself or to others. For instance, you are drinking too much alcohol, abusing drugs, or becoming overly argumentative and aggressive.
What To Consider When Making The Choice…
*Psychologists and clients work together. The right match is important. Most psychologists agree that an important factor in determining whether or not to work with a particular psychologist, once that psychologist’s credentials and competence are established, is your level of personal comfort with that psychologist. A good rapport with your psychologist is critical. Choose a psychologist with whom you feel comfortable and at ease.
