Work with a Licensed Psychologist in Annapolis, MD
People all around the world are going through their daily routine – waking up, eating breakfast, going to work, sitting in meetings all day, going home to cook dinner, and then going to bed. Maybe for you, you have to spend quality time with your kids or pets, or maybe you live alone and like to catch up on your favorite book. Regardless, the human experience is similar in many ways for people across the world. Unfortunately, there are other things that people have in common – mental health problems. Whether it’s stress from work, a fight you had with your partner, or grieving the loss of a close friend or family member, your mental health faces challenges and obstacles that sometimes come out of nowhere. Just like how you would ice your knee after running 3 miles to soothe your swelling, you should give yourself a break when things are getting too stressful. Fortunately, when you need more than a mental rest day, there are mental health professionals who can step in and give you the extra support you need.

Why Should I Work with a Psychologist?
As we just touched on, and as you probably know, life isn’t always a walk in the park. We get into fights, have problems at work, struggle with mental illness, and experience traumatic events. While it would be great if those things never happened, they do, and we need to learn how to come back from them the right way. Psychologists can prove beneficial to so many different people for a myriad of reasons. As you can tell, there are many reasons why you might want to seek out the help of a mental health professional. Here are a few reasons to start:
- Struggling with a mental illness such as anxiety, depression, ADD, or ADHD
- Healing from a breakup or divorce
- Grieving the loss of a loved one
- Dealing with the diagnosis of a physical illness
- Working through financial stress and strain
- Learning how to deal with and manage stress and anger
- Bettering relationships with friends and family members
- Getting guidance on life direction and career changes
- Coping with major life changes such as moving to a new city or state
- And much, much more
If you need help with any of the challenges above, or have a different challenge that is having a negative effect on your mental health, consider working with a psychologist at Thriveworks Annapolis.
What Psychologists Can Do to Help You
Our psychologists are trained, licensed, and very experienced in working with many different people. They are dedicated to providing their clients with the most comprehensive plan of care, and that means taking a unique and individualized approach to treatment. At our office, you can expect to receive a customized plan of action that is based on your goals, concerns, and needs. Every person is unique and treatment plans should be too.
Different therapeutic techniques and methods can be used in your therapy treatment such as cognitive behavioral therapy, traditional talk therapy, art therapy, narrative therapy, child therapy, and more. For some, a combination of medication and counseling is the best course of treatment. If that is the case for you, your psychologist will work alongside your primary care physician and/or psychiatrist to prescribe and manage the medication that works best for you and your needs.
Psychologists can help you overcome your challenges and help you go down a path for happier, healthier living. Even if you aren’t dealing with a major life issue, you can still find benefits of talking to a therapist who has an unbiased, outside perspective with your needs in mind.
