How is therapy different from talking with my friend or family member?

Having a close friend or family member to talk with about personal problems is an important part of a healthy support network. Having these individuals helps to support positive mental health outcomes. Often, this is enough to move past roadblocks. Sometimes, though, the same roadblock may continue to surface or you may not feel comfortable sharing deeply personal information with your support network because of how they may react. Talking with a trained expert, in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental atmosphere can help you uncover previously unrecognized behavioral and emotion patterns that may be contributing to these roadblocks.
