Am I weak for seeking help?
No! Everyone needs help now and then. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths.
Therapy is an opportunity for you to establish a safe and trusted place to share if you are experiencing postpartum, co-occurring, trauma, depression, and anxiety disorders. Becoming your authentic self is the first step to identifying and speaking your truth as you receive support.
Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
If you are concerned about your relationship, it is best that both of you would attend therapy together, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I would look to work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.
