What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?

I would advise someone hesitant to try therapy to take the first step by seeking an initial consultation. It's an opportunity to ask questions, express concerns, and get a sense of whether therapy feels right for them. Remember, therapy is a safe and confidential space for self-discovery and growth, and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.
