As a rule of thumb, I would say that if you are wondering whether you need help, it's probably a sign that your intuition is kicking in and that it might be time to reach out. Therapy is an incredibly useful tool for, not only working through problems and dealing with symptoms, but also to deepen your understanding of yourself and get more in touch with your purpose and values that you can live a more meaningful, fulfilled life. Other than that, some signs that may show that it might be time to go to therapy would include finding that your old ways of coping with stress are no longer working. Seeing that you're developing some new unhealthy habits, getting feedback from important people in your life that they're worried about you, or lastly feeling that you're not able to function at school, work, at home, or in your relationships.
