Charlottesville Counseling – Anxiety, Life Coaching and Mental Health Services
For many of us, the very mention of the words counseling or therapy cause feelings of uncertainty and uneasiness.
We may live in a family or be part of a culture that does not value mental health. We may simply feel embarrassed to admit that we need help in any area of life. It seems ironic that most of us would not hesitate to go to a medical doctor for a sore throat, but we may hesitate for months (or even years) to treat an unhealthy relationship.
Counseling can be helpful in a number of situations. Maybe you are simply not functioning at the highest level that you feel is possible. In this type of case, perhaps a life coach would help you reach your goals and dreams. Alternatively, maybe your family has experienced a serious trauma, and just functioning in daily life is difficult.
A person functioning at a positive ten would have all areas of life going well. These various areas would include career, family, physical health, mental health, relationships, and spirituality. Of course, none of us are functioning at a 10 on all of these areas at all times. Alternatively, a person that is experiencing a serious trauma or mental health problems may be functioning near a -10. This indicates a great deal of pain that needs to be processed.
A trained and experienced professional can be very helpful in bringing you from an area of pain to healing. Thriveworks counselors and professionals are prepared to deal with whatever you may present in our office. Your personal issue or family trauma will not shock us. You do not need to be afraid to tell us the truth. You may have been keeping a secret or lying to your friends about how you are really doing for so long, that it is hard to imagine coming clean. We can be your trusted confidant. We can help you, your child, your spouse, or your family function in a more healthy and happy manner.
There are many reasons to seek counseling. These may include:
- Anxiety issues
- Couples counseling
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Grief counseling
- Problems with a child such as ADHD
- Anger management
- Addiction issues
- Life coaching
- Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job
You may not see your issue immediately identifiable on this list. No need to fear; help is still available. It can be hard to put an issue that has been part of your life for so long into a clear category. Life is complicated, as are the reasons to seek counseling. Whatever you are facing, we can face it together. We are prepared to walk with you on this journey of healing and growth.
At Thriveworks, we only hire the best counselors and therapists. Our professionals are leaders in their field, respected for their work. Many have been published in reputable and distinguished news outlets and academic publications. Some of these include The Boston Globe, CNN, The Journal of Mental Health Counseling, Counseling Today, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe, Psychiatric Times and many others. We are ready to put our knowledge to work for you.
Dealing with your issues may not be easy, but it will make you a better person. When you are under intense stress, it is difficult to have the patience to deal kindly with others. You should take pride in your decision to seek help. You are taking the time to make peace for yourself, your family, your marriage and your life. When you deal with yourself in a kind and patient manner, it is easier to do so with others as well. It may seem selfish to take time for yourself to pursue counseling, but in the end, it will make you a healthier person for your loved ones.
When you call Thriveworks, you can trust that we make it a priority for you to see a therapist soon. Unlike most offices, we do not operate with a waiting list. We have appointments ready for new clients within 24 hours. We understand that your life is busy, that it may have been very difficult to pick up the phone for the first time, and that you need help when you call. We want to be ready when you are ready.
You may be in the middle of an intense trauma. You may simply feel that you could be functioning at a higher level. You may not be able to stand another fight with your spouse, another slammed door in your face from your teenager, or another silent night around the dinner table. Whatever your problem, we are ready and able to help. Thriveworks therapists are experts in their field and ready to help. Let us walk with you on this journey of healing.
