About this Event

Have you ever felt so down that you couldn’t focus at work? Worried about something so much that you couldn’t sleep? Struggled to quit smoking, exercise more, or eat more healthy foods? Most people have or will have at least one of these experiences at some point in their lives, and it will get in the way of their work, relationships, health, or general life satisfaction. When that’s the case, talking to a mental health professional can help. Unfortunately, many people will avoid going to therapy because they don’t understand what it is, they don’t know how to find a therapist, or they think that therapy is only for “crazy” people. This talk aims to make psychotherapy more accessible by explaining what it actually is and how it can help average folks improve their lives. We’ll talk about different approaches to therapy, what you can expect to change, and how to find a therapist when you need extra help.

Alguna vez te has sentido tan mal emocionalmente que no podías ni pensar en tu trabajo? Te has preocupado tanto que no podías dormir? Has tratado de dejar de fumar, hacer más ejercicio, o comer comidas más saludables? La mayoría de la gente tiene o tendrá una experiencia así alguna vez en su vida, y interfiere con su trabajo, sus relaciones, su salud, o el la satisfacción de la vida general. Cuando eso es el caso, hablar con un profesional de la salud mental puede ayudar, pero muchas personas evitan la terapia porque no entienden qué es, no saben cómo encontrar a una terapeuta, o porque piensan que la terapia es solo para “los locos.” Esta conversación intenta a hacer que la psicoterapia sea más accesible al explicar lo que realmente es y cómo puede ayudar a la gente común a mejorar su vida. Vamos a hablar sobre diferentes métodos terapéuticos, los cambios que puedes esperar, y cómo encontrar a una terapeuta cuando necesitas más ayuda.
