If you're unsure on whether your symptoms would be appropriate for therapy, below I have provided a couple of self-assessments in the form of checklists. These are NOT a formal or informal diagnosis. They are meant to be educational, I hope you find them helpful.
Let's say you are eager to get help and you'd like to get started. Or let's say that maybe due to finances or time you're unable to receive therapy at this time. In either of those cases, I would like to just say that in order to heal or grow you will need to make some time for you, even if it is to just read or journal. That being said, I love to give out resources so I'll give you my two favorite resources:
Dr. Margaret Paul, the co-creator of Inner Bonding
Dr. Gay and Katie Hendricks, the Hendricks Institute
There are great because they address anything between depression, anxiety, grief, relationships and more. I recommend their books, their programs and articles. They also send articles directly to your email if you subscribe to their mailings.
