How to Know When It’s Time to Seek Mental Health Support From a Therapist, Rochester, New York

Many people, at some point in their lives, need the support of a mental health counseling professional to make a big change or get through a difficult time. At White Spruce Counseling in Rochester, NY, the team of therapists and drug and alcohol counselors is dedicated to providing compassionate and effective support to all of their clients.

If you think you or a loved one should see a therapist, there are a few signs to look for, including:

  • Avoidance Of Certain Situations: If you or someone you know consistently avoids specific situations because they may be stressful, additional support may be necessary. Avoidance and the anxiety behind it can negatively impact your quality of life.
  • Avoidance Of Certain People Or Places: This habit tends to be associated with trauma. If someone associates people or places with a significant negative experience, they may naturally want to avoid that person or place. A therapist can help you recover from the trauma and develop healthy coping habits.
  • Hiding Anxiety Or Fear: Experiencing severe feelings of anxiety or fear that you feel compelled to hide from others may be a sign that you need professional help. Talking about your feelings is an important coping mechanism, and a therapist can help you facilitate positive change in this way.


These are just a few of many reasons someone may want to seek the services of a professional therapist. By visiting a trained therapist at Rochester's best counseling center, you can discuss and overcome your challenges in a warm, nonjudgmental environment. They provide expert anger management services, drug and alcohol counseling, and more. 

If you're having a hard time, get the help you deserve. To talk to a professional who can help you obtain the support you need, call White Spruce Counseling today at (585) 424-2436. For more information about their services, visit their website
