Does therapy really help?

Updated: Mar 13, 2019

“I’ve tried therapy. It didn’t help.”

“Nobody seems to know how to help me.”

“I just want to get better.”

These are words I hate hearing. Suffering people need relief. Recovery from life’s trouble MUST begin with a thorough, accurate assessment by a psychologist, to ensure a unique, individualized treatment plan can be created.


How does it work?

Accurate assessment and diagnosis is crucial before trying to do therapy. As a Clinical Psychologist, I use specialized tools and skills to identify the actual problem, then, together we develop an individualized treatment plan to correct those issues specific to your needs/desires. Often, we find and resolve what others missed or misdiagnosed.


I’m afraid of going to therapy Will it work for me?

Compassion, commitment, and understanding, coupled with empathy, expertise, create an environment of comfort, safety, and hope. Problems in children, teens, or adults require individualized attention with expertise. At Answers for Youth & Families, we will meet you where you are and accept you and your circumstances regardless of your background or beliefs. We will make you feel comfortable immediately and be able to guide you through the process of identifying the problems you struggle with, then find effective solutions to resolve those problems. I have made a career out of helping those who have tried “therapy” before but didn’t seem to get much out of it.

Why a Psychologist?

A psychologist is the highest, non-medical, mental health professional available. Entrust yourself and your loved ones to only the best care available. Call us at Answers for Youth & Families at 479-452-7792.
