How Therapy Helps

Mental health therapy is beneficial for anyone at any time of life. Although most people seek counseling in the midst of a crisis, there is always something mental health therapy can help you grow through.

Self Talk Matters

One of the main ways therapy helps is by changing the stories you tell yourself. For example, “I’ve failed” can be turned into “it will get better”, or “it just didn’t work out” and possibly “I am human and fallible.”

Language Is SO Powerful.

It gives meaning to our entire lives. What you say to yourself will rule your life. It is time to find the power in your own mind and release it. A mental health therapist can help you find your inner strength.


Patterns exist everywhere, even in the pattern of a sunflower. Therapy is helpful in finding patterns in your life. With the help of a skilled therapist, you can begin to identify what you are doing over and over that is hurting your ultimate outcome. Therapy isn’t all about focusing on the negative parts of your story. Building off your already established strengths is inportant too. If you know what is working, you can do it over and over, banking on those strengths and adjusting for the negative.

Therapist Selection

Whichever therapist you choose, you will have never met them. This means what comes from this person will most likely be a new exposure. Exposing yourself to new people and ideas is important for the development of your psyche. This is also a significant part of therapy: one human being affecting another human being. Therefore, making sure the relationship is a good fit is important.

Our therapists will make every effort on the first phone call to ask the right questions to make sure you get the best fit therapist. You will get to ask whatever questions you like as well.

To say I love this place would be an incredible understatement. My 8 yr old daughter sees Ricky, and he is by far the... BEST we have been with. Life changing!! I’ve seen incredible improvements since we began going, and I have peace of mind, which for a mother, is absolutely priceless. I have recommended Ricky to countless people and their experiences have been the same. He not only works with my daughter, but he communicates with me about what’s going on and gives me guidance in between visits. He is so so wonderful, I highly recommend!!!read more

Having conducted therapy sessions in a wide variety of settings and agencies I can say with confidence that working... under Kristen's leadership at Archway Therapy is by far the best workplace experience that I have ever known.
