Counselors, Therapists, and Life Coaches in Amherst, NY—Mental Health Care at Thriveworks

Daily life can be predictable. Have you ever felt like every day is the same? You wake up, think about exercising, feel bad for not exercising, go to work, get a cup of coffee, clock out, pick up the kids, make dinner, watch TV, go to bed, repeat. Life can feel like a hamster wheel—always running the same route but never going anywhere.

But that isn’t everyone’s experience. To some, life feels unpredictable and out of control. Mental health conditions or traumas can blindside people or their loved ones. These may make life scary and chaotic, leaving people feeling helpless.

Do one of these experiences sound familiar? Or maybe even a combination of the two? Most likely, you can relate because every person faces difficulties in life. Even though life’s challenges are common, many people feel alone in them and think, “No one gets it,” or, “I can’t trust anyone with this struggle,” or, “Where do I even begin?” The counselors and coaches at Thriveworks Amherst understand life’s challenges, including how isolating they can be. With care and expertise, they have walked with many clients as they overcome difficulties and pursue a more fulfilled life.

How Can Counseling or Coaching Help Me?

It’s rare for people to stop and think about a particular problem they face, even if they feel like they are always in the midst of the problem. But taking time to step back, reflect on a deeper level, and make necessary changes is important. Having an experienced professional guide that process can make it even more effective. Thriveworks Amherst, NY’s coaches and counselors often help their clients by…

  • Adapting their care for each individual’s needs.
  • Exploring and concentrating on personal dreams and professional goals.
  • Pinpointing counterproductive or harmful habits and behaviors.
  • Teaching interpersonal and coping skills.
  • Diagnosing and treating any mental health disorders.

Although we could never list all the many reasons people seek counseling or coaching at our office, some of those reasons include eating disorders, infidelity, depression, grief, anxiety, job loss, addiction, anger management, insomnia, marriage tension, and life transitions.

The coaches and counselors who practice at Thriveworks Amherst, NY want each client who walks into their doors to walk out with a more enriched life. Making changes is difficult, and therapy is not a silver bullet. But over time and with the care and guidance of our professionals, many of our clients are so glad they made necessary but difficult changes and are now enjoying a happier life.

What If a Loved One Is Struggling?

Watching a loved one walk through a hardship is a difficult and tricky situation. Whether that person is willing to meet with a mental health professional or not, seeking help for yourself may be a good choice.

Maybe your loved one has an addiction that is negatively affecting your life. Maybe your spouse cheated, and you are not sure whether you can trust them. Maybe your grown child needs help, and you feel conflicted about how to help them. Regardless of the particular circumstances, if your loved one needs help, a Thriveworks Amherst professional can guide you on the best course of action for you. No one can control another person but asking for help for yourself is always an option.
