Is Therapy Right for Me?


Megan McGinn, PsyD

Mental health therapy is a highly effective form of treatment for individuals struggling with a variety of concerns. For anyone contemplating therapy, this blog post will discuss who can benefit from therapy, what types of problems therapy can help with, and the kinds of therapy you can expect at Radish.

Therapy provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment for individuals to explore and work through their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Let’s find out more about it!

Who Can Benefit from Therapy?

Anyone can benefit from therapy, regardless of their background, age, or gender. Therapy is not limited to individuals with diagnosed mental health disorders. Therapy can help you explore questions like:

  • Why do I have strong reactions to certain people or situations?
  • Why do I tend to repeat unhelpful patterns that tend to end in negative outcomes?
  • What am I avoiding in life and why do I feel stuck or unsatisfied?
  • How do I connect with others on a more meaningful level and resolve conflicts?
  • Why am I so hard on myself and others?

Anyone who is struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, or other emotional difficulties can benefit from therapy. Additionally, therapy can be a valuable motivational resource for individuals seeking personal growth and development.

What Types of Problems Can Therapy Help With?

Therapy at Radish can help with a wide range of mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, PTSD, and addiction. Therapy can also help individuals who are struggling with relationship issues, life transitions, and self-esteem issues. In therapy, you build a strong emotional rapport with your practitioner, based on trust, that allows you to work through difficult or painful problems that you may not feel comfortable discussing with others in your life.

At Radish, we offer both short term therapy (if you are struggling with a circumstantial problem, i.e., a breakup, work transition, accomplishing a specific goal) and long-term therapy (for ongoing emotional support through various life stages). Therapy is a highly personalized treatment, which means that the focus of therapy will vary depending on your unique needs and concerns.

What forms of therapy are offered at Radish?

We offer evidence based therapeutic interventions depending on your specific needs and preferences. The main forms of therapy you can expect at Radish include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and interpersonal therapy.

CBT is a highly structured and goal-oriented form of therapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. Psychodynamic therapy is a more exploratory form of therapy that focuses on understanding the underlying emotional/psychological issues from a person’s developmental and relational history that contribute to mental health problems. Interpersonal therapy is a short-term form of therapy that focuses on improving communication, relationship skills, and building closeness with others.
