Why Don't More People Seek Help from You a Licensed Psychologist or Therapist?

On Psychology Today, Dr. Loren Soeiro wrote an extensive piece titled "10 Reasons Why People Refuse to Talk to Therapists." You might not be surprised at the answers. Simply put, not everyone sees value in therapy. A few of the big reasons involve time and money. Some wonder why they should pay a licensed psychologist over talking with friends and family. Others have financial barriers. Last but not least, there are individuals who had bad experiences with therapy in the past.

Whatever the reason, there are many people who might benefit from the outside perspective and experienced insight of a licensed psychologist.

Perhaps that’s why you’re here now.
