Is it normal for people to cry during therapy, or is it just me?

It is absolutely normal to cry at therapy!  It is common for a client to cry during a session.  Crying can be therapeutic, especially for someone who is used to not allowing him/herself to feel his/her feelings.  I create a safe space in order for you to be able to share your tears, as well as support you in understanding what your tears mean.

If you are currently feeling suicidal or are in crisis, call 911 or proceed to your local emergency room.
