Don’t wait until it’s almost too late!

It’s very interesting to see when the ebb and flow of client calls occur – both in a therapist’s calendar and in the client’s life.

There is a definite trend for people to start therapy in the new year. Holidays with the family can re-awaken left-over family of origin issues.

Another surge of client calls may occur once school has resumed – after all the vacation, travel, and kids at home stuff has gone back to a dull roar – a normal routine.

On the flip side, it’s interesting to note when things slow down with therapy appointments. I’m convinced people feel better in the summer (we sure notice it here on the west coast) when there’s some relief from possible Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)!

The other slow time begins around Thanksgiving and goes through Christmas – there is so much activity – you just can’t do everything!

But over-arching those factors, sometimes people wait until things are at the point of talking “divorce” or close to it. Not the best idea really – you wouldn’t want to do that with a bad tooth or when you’re hemorrhaging!

In any case, whether it’s you-know-what hitting the fan or a lesser situation surfacing, therapists are prepared to deal with any level of problem you bring in. You can wait until crisis proportions, or you can come in for a well-family check-up!
