If you are facing a life, relationship or work issue, generally therapy is a good option. Therapy also is particularly helpful if you know you have a specific mental health concern.
Everyone can struggle though, right? How do you know when it’s time to come in? Honestly, if you feel you are in a lot of pain or you find yourself upset for longer than a couple days, it’s probably time. You don’t have to do it alone. Here at Mental Shifts, we are here for you, and we want to help.
Okay, But Why Relationship-Oriented Therapy? Why You?
When you work with Dr. Grant or his Supervisees, even if you’re coming in for a life or work or mental health concern, part of what we always look at is your relationships and social support, too. Dr. Grant sees the world through relationships.
Dr. Grant believes humans are social beings. When things are not connecting for us, whether it be romantic or socially, we stop functioning at our best levels. This is when it starts to bleed into other aspects of our lives.
Think about the last time you had a really bad fight with a partner or family member. Try to remember how you felt right after.
Devastated? Frustrated? Angry?
Now, think about going to work or trying to perform really well? It may feel impossible, right? This is where things began for you. And that’s just ONE instance. What if you are fighting several times a week or with several people?
Problems or Symptoms?
At Mental Shifts we want to make sure we are treating the deeper problems and not just the symptoms. It may be true you first began looking because you have trouble sleeping or feel blah all the time recently.
If you’re reading this now, though, and are thinking “Actually, that makes sense. I might feel this way because I’m not happy in my relationship(s).” We can help you reach your goals of feeling better and doing that by having happy, fulfilling relationships.
