You lose a loved one, a job, a relationship, a pet or get into an accident, have an injury, gain weight, have a baby, return from war or experience something else that just rattles you to your core. You know something isn’t right, you feel a bit off, but continue living your life thinking you’ll get over it. We all have been there and often with time we do get over it, sort of. These life scars help us to grow and while that is great in theory, the pain that comes with growth can take a toll on us. Our mental health is directly connected to our physical health. When we see illness we know it’s a clue our mental outlook is out of whack. Do you need a therapist? How can you tell? Today we will talk with Dr. Sanam Hafeez, a NYC based licensed clinical psychologist about how you can know if you need a therapist. After you hear what she has to say you may agree that you cannot afford NOT to see a therapist.
