Why should I go to therapy? 

Therapy is an opportunity. An opportunity to work with a trained professional in exploring the patterns of the past that influence the behaviors of today. Therapy can aid in increasing confidence, hope, joy, coping skills, and much more. Whether for children who are learning their managing skills now or an adult that is choosing to do things differently after many years, therapy with MIS is a place where you can feel comfortable, safe, and un-judged as you move through life challenges.

When is the best time to seek help? 

Anytime. Oftentimes, many believe troubles are an indicator that it is time to attend therapy. However, therapy can be used to help you through difficult times or to grow the beautiful qualities you already have. Therapy doesn't need to only be about "healing the broken" but can also be applied to "strengthen the warriors."

I'm worried, I've never been to therapy before. 

That makes sense. When you contact MIS, you will reach our Patient Coordinator, that will talk with you to get a better understanding of which therapist in our practice suits you. During your call, we work to help you understand the process of starting your therapeutic journey, as well as answer any questions you may have. Your comfort is our number one priority, and we work with you to help you get to a place where you feel comfortable enough to share your life, your history, and your goals with us.

How Do I Begin?

The first step is always the hardest…

Being here, now, is one of the hardest steps in this process towards feeling better and improving your quality of life. The ability to acknowledge the need for help for yourself or your family is one of the most loving acts we can do. 

But you've made it, and help is only a call away!
