Counselors and Therapists in Grand Rapids – Life Coaching, Mental Health Services
Without question, you will face difficulties in your lifetime. Challenges that will disrupt the status quo and upturn your previous experiences and understandings, leading you to a crossroads: Do you confront the challenge head-on or do you let it sweep you away? If you take the first route — the active one — you need to then figure out what steps you need to take to get you where you want to go. If you find yourself on the other path, the passive option, you’ll likely end up lost, confused and overwhelmed.
The events that change your life vary from year to year, person to person, and may be similar to one of the following:
- Difficulty making friends at a new school or a new city
- Marital infidelity
- Loss of employment through something like an inability to focus or as a result of drug addiction
- Passing of a close friend or family member
- Beginning a new career path
- Getting engaged
- Incurring a disabling injury or disease
No matter which side of the crossroads you find yourself on in the aftermath of any life-altering event — the active course or the passive — know that you do not have to navigate this new territory alone. Thriveworks Grand Rapids Counseling and Coaching is here to help you work through life’s big questions and to overcome the obstacles preventing you from being fulfilled, happy and balanced.

Are you a human? Are you living and breathing? If so, then counseling should be just as important as exercising, sleeping well and maintaining a nutritious diet. Mental health and physical health are but two distinct (yet correlated) aspects of your overall well-being.
Imagine what would happen to your body if you were to never go for bike ride, take a walk, play basketball, do yoga or any other physical activity? Imagine if you didn’t know any better, and only ate sugary snacks and tried to operate on a couple of hours of sleep for days, weeks and years. You probably have a pretty clear image in your mind of what that would look like — and it’s not the prettiest.
Well, the effects of neglecting your mental health are no less troublesome. In some ways, not caring for your mind and emotions can have a massively negative impact to your overall health (who wants to start an exercise routine or eat well when depressed?), and create a self-fulfilling downward spiral.
Sure, some people seem to look physically fit without working out a day in their life (that’ll catch up to them sooner or later). Some people seem balanced without ever meeting with a professional therapist, but just think: How much more mentally and physically fit would these people be if they took an active interest in their self care? How much more mentally and physically fit would you be? Think about it.
