About Therapy



For many people, there is a stigma associated with therapy. The life-enriching options provided by mental health professionals are often disregarded and overlooked, leaving many individuals in need of help and direction. Empower wants to change the way we view mental health by educating, guiding, and empowering. We provide the tools, clarity, and skills to others so they can build resilience to mental adversity and live happier, fuller lives.

What is therapy?


Therapy is a process whereby individuals gain insight into their present functioning state and well-being. Working with a therapist can help you identify your strengths and skills while learning how to cope with and change areas of weakness. While not all things in our lives can be changed, having an unbiased mentor can make a difficult situation much more bearable. Your therapy guide will follow your lead and is there to support and supply you with the tools you need. This unique collaboration will help build your confidence, fuel your courage, and empower you to achieve your therapeutic goals. 

Most Empower therapy guides have engaged in personal exploration to gain insight into our own well-being. We understand how apprehensive and anxious therapy can make you feel. With a homelike atmosphere and a family of close-knit professionals, Empower strives to provide a welcoming environment to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

What is my role in therapy?

Research tells us that a crucial piece to the successfulness of therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist. Your Empower therapy guide will work hard to build rapport with you and develop that bond. In order for therapy to be successful, however, personalities must work well together. If you ever feel that your therapist is not the right fit, we will work to find you the right match. 

During therapy, your Empower therapy guide will work with you to identify your goals. Your therapist’s objective is to help you reach those goals. Part of this process may include work outside of the sessions such as journaling, reading material, completing workbook pages, or practicing new skills. Your therapeutic experience will depend greatly on what you put into it. We know therapy can involve a lot of hard work, but if you put in the effort, we will work just as hard to guide you towards your goals.
