Benefits of Going to Therapy
A hallmark of therapy is its ability to help you grow. Through therapy, you can gain insights into your thought patterns, emotional triggers, and behavioral responses. This heightened self-awareness leads to the development of healthy coping strategies, a noticeable reduction in stress, and a sense of tranquility. As a result, many gain improvements in their emotional well-being and overall mental health.
Many people also seek out therapy to improve their relationships. Effective communication and healthy connections with others are essential to a happy life. Therapy equips individuals with the tools to improve their interpersonal skills, address conflicts, and strengthen relationships with loved ones. Clients frequently report that therapy helped them become better partners, parents, friends, and colleagues, by helping them work through unhelpful relationship patterns and adopt new, healthy ways of relating to others in their lives.
An often-underestimated benefit of therapy is its power to empower individuals with enhanced decision-making and problem-solving abilities. With the compassionate guidance of a trusted therapist, you’ll learn to assess situations more objectively, set and achieve your goals, and make informed choices. This newfound clarity frequently translates into higher satisfaction levels in personal, romantic, and professional domains of your life.
Beyond emotional and interpersonal benefits, therapy can bring about practical changes in one’s life. Clients often report increased productivity, better time management, and improved focus. As they gain a deeper understanding of their strengths and areas for growth, they can achieve goals more effectively. This often leads to a more balanced and fulfilling life. In summary, the major benefits of therapy include emotional healing, enhanced relationships, improved decision-making, and practical life changes, all leading to a more fulfilling and well-rounded life.

Looking Glass Therapy FAQs
What should I expect from my first therapy session?
During your first session, your therapist will ask you questions to get to know you and understand your reasons for coming to therapy. Your therapist will want to learn about your history, what’s going on with you now, and learn about what you want to get out of therapy. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask them questions about how therapy works so you know what to expect.
How long will I be in therapy for?
The amount of time therapy takes is different for each person. If you’re dealing with a short-term stressor that you want resolved, that will typically take less time than a problem you’ve been dealing with for a long while. For some, therapy is short-term, taking just a few months until they are satisfied with their progress. For others, therapy will become a part of their routine, helping them manage ongoing concerns in their life and having a safe outlet for them to explore themselves, their patterns, and understand themselves on a deeper level.
Virtual therapy: How does it work?
With the rise in virtual therapy, especially in NYC, it makes sense to want to know more about how it works. Research shows that virtual therapy has the same benefits as therapy that takes place face-to-face. Virtual therapy is an effective way to fit therapy into your busy schedule, as it allows you to talk to your therapist in the comfort of your own home. With virtual therapy, you avoid the hurdles that can happen with face-to-face appointments, such as scheduling conflicts, traffic, and travel time. In order to make the most of your virtual session, meet with your therapist in a private space in your home and have a good internet connection.
How do I pick the right therapist for me?
You’ve decided to take that next step and start therapy, and it can feel overwhelming to decide on a therapist. That’s why we offer a complimentary consultation call with a Looking Glass Intake Coordinator to help you make an informed choice. Every therapist has different strengths and styles that they bring to sessions. When you are in the process of selecting a therapist, talk to your coordinator about what you want to get out of therapy so you can rest assured that you are matched with the right person for you. After all, therapy is all about creating a space where you feel comfortable to open up, so finding a therapist that you click with is the first step on your journey!
How do I know if therapy is working?
Starting from your first session, you and your therapist will talk about what you want to get out of therapy. You may come in with a very specific goal, or you may use therapy as a space to talk about ongoing events in your life. Regardless of your therapy goals, your therapist will create a comfortable space for you to talk about how therapy is going so you are both on the same page about the process. Ultimately, you will get more out of therapy if you are willing to put more into it. Growth takes place when you are willing to reflect on yourself and take what you are learning during sessions out into the world with you. Below are a few signs of progress that clients typically note:
- You start noticing that your symptoms (anxiety, depression, panic attacks, etc.) are less frequent or intense than before.
- You’re able to function better at work, school, or in your personal relationships.
- You start to find that you have a better understanding of yourself, your feelings, and your behaviors. You’ve gained insights and are making connections that you didn’t make before.
- You might be using new coping skills that you’ve learned in therapy, and they’re helping in your daily life.
- People close to you may tell you that they have noticed positive changes.

To submit for a partial refund, simply log into your health insurance portal to enter the information listed on your superbill. If you have an Out-of-Network plan and have met your Out-of-Network deductible, your health plan will mail the partial refund in the form of a check to your home a few weeks after each appointment.
