Isn’t therapy just about making me cry or feel bad about things? +

Not really. While we will explore a full range of emotions, I do not believe focusing just on the negatives is what good therapy is all about. It is just as important to work with the positive things and reinforcing the good as it is to heal the bad. With that said, tears in a therapy office and not shameful and often a sign of a deep release of emotional pain being purged from the body. To not allow yourself to grieve is to keep yourself stuck.
