There is still the stigma that looking for therapy is because you have problems or something is wrong with you. As humans we are afraid of vulnerability and pain, and we don't wanna confront it. People that come to therapy are very brave because even when scared and uncomfortable they dare to be vulnerable to another flawed human being.
I believe that to be a congruent and genuine person/therapist you have to be honest with yourself and the work you do. You can only bring somebody as far as you have gone. I walk the walk and continue to work on myself and grow as a person and a professional while daily cultivating compassion for me and others.
