What Problems Can a Psychologist Help Solve?

The word psychologist can be a scary term if you are not sure what it is a psychologist actually does or what they can do for you. According to the American Psychological Association being a psychologist means that they help people with their problems “by using a variety of techniques based on the best available research and consider someone’s unique values, characteristics, goals and circumstances.”  There is a negative stigma associated with mental health and it is completely inaccurate. Seeking help from a licensed professional is the best form of self-care. Maintaining your mental health is equally important as maintaining your physical health. Psychologists can help with relationship issues and individual issues.

Psychologists can provide a safe space to explore past trauma where you can express your feelings and learn what your needs are.
