How do I find a therapist?

Finding the best therapist for you is a personal decision. The best way to find a therapist — whether you suffer from anxiety or depression, have a teen that needs counseling, or are looking for marriage counseling — is to contact one of our Intake Specialists at Darien Wellness. Browse our therapist profiles and then reach out to our office for an initial therapy consultation. We will help you find the counselor who best fits your needs and goals for therapy.

I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

Knowing when to ask for help is a sign of resiliency, not a display of weakness. If you had a broken arm, you would visit a doctor to set it. When life throws you curveballs or you begin to find it difficult to manage your stress, reaching out to a professional counselor can help you reset your approach. Therapy helps you build on the strengths you already have while learning new approaches and gaining new insight into yourself.

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

Friends and family can be wonderful sources of support in times of stress. The difference between talking to a friend or family member and speaking with a counselor is simple: counselors are trained professionals dedicated to helping you meet your goals. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential.

Why shouldn’t I just take medication?

Medication can be effective and is sometimes needed in conjunction with therapy. However, medication alone cannot solve all issues; medication treats the symptoms. Speak with one of our Intake Specialists to discuss if working on your goals with a counselor while also receiving medication management through one of our APRNs is right for you.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. Our therapists will tailor their therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

How long will it take?

Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all answer. Each individual's circumstances are unique to them, therefore the length of time spent in therapy depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

Your active participation and dedication are crucial to your success actively attending sessions as directed by your counselor, as well as the work you do outside of your sessions will really help you see your personal growth and development.

My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?

Depending on your relationship and what issues you are experiencing, couples counseling alone, or couples counseling paired with individual counseling may be appropriate to meet your needs. For instance, you may find that working in therapy independent of your partner allows you to come to couples counseling more prepared to communicate effectively. Our counselors are available to work with you and your partner together, as well as provide individual counseling to each partner. Reach out to our Intake Specialists to talk about what is right for you and your partner.
