People also don't think that those who are highly successful need therapy. Just because some have achieved a lot does not mean they aren't capable of having depression or any other mental issues. Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and contributor writer for the Huffington Post says that there are five main reasons a successful person would want to go to therapy.
