If you've never been to therapy, you might be asking yourself a few things:
- Are my problems "big enough" to go to therapy?
- Am I crazy if I go to therapy?
- What even IS therapy?

But here's the thing: ANYONE can, and does, benefit from therapy, no matter how "big" or "small" your problems or emotions feel!

Above are 6 common (but unexpected) reasons folks go to therapy!
