The author Brené Brown once wisely stated, “Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” It can feel scary when we’re not in control of an outcome. Admitting that you don’t know what’s going to happen and putting yourself on the line anyway requires a great deal of bravery. When you ask for help, you’re looking into the unknown and you don’t know what’s on the other side.
Facing a therapist for the first time can feel intimidating. What kinds of questions are they going to ask? What if you’re not ready to discuss certain topics? What if you discover uncomfortable truths about yourself? You might feel vulnerable and out of your element. But with the right therapist or counselor, this vulnerable stance can ultimately lead to empowerment.

How Can I Get the Best Affordable Online Counseling?

Is Online Psychiatry Effective?
