Experience effective therapy with a counselor or therapist in Athens

Things don’t always go as planned. Marriages end. Loved ones pass away. Careers abruptly fall apart. Although our lives are filled with twists and turns, changes can occur for the better. A closed door can lead to a new path in life that we never expected. However, sometimes these unexpected changes can create anxiety and havoc that is hard to deal with on our own. That is where a Thriveworks counselor, therapist, or life coach in Athens, GA can be helpful. This person can help you understand your feelings and emotions, help you see the hope and possibilities for the future, and then help you move forward in the right direction.

We all have such busy, complicated lives, we barely have the chance to get past small talk topics like the weather and our daily tasks. When we actually do have a chance to talk to those around us, it can feel even more lonely because we tend to hold in our real issues.

In this busy world, connecting with a Thriveworks counselor, psychologist, therapist, psychiatrist, or coach can make all the difference in your mental health. This person can be a sounding board, a confidant, an advisor, a coach, and a partner in your mental health. We cannot promise to make the world an always happy place, filled with roses and sunshine, but we can promise to walk with you on the journey.

Why Spend Time With a Counselor or Psychiatrist?

It can be a difficult decision to take time out of your life and spend time in counseling or psychiatry. We all come to the decision to seek help for different reasons and in different periods of our life. For example, children and teenagers are often in need of counseling, but cannot express this need. Although we may be aware that we need help, we still cannot seem to figure out a time or way to make that a reality. Other times, serious trauma or loss has occurred, and receiving help is not an option but a necessity for survival. In these cases, a Thriveworks mental health professional can make your life manageable and daily functioning possible again.

If you are struggling with a serious mental health condition or another life challenge, Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Athens can help or direct you to the appropriate source of help. There is nothing that you could bring to our office that would shock us. There is no need to feel embarrassed or shameful about whatever issue you are facing. When you are considering mental health services, you are making a positive change that can help you move towards a more peaceful, content life.

Would I Benefit From Psychiatry?

A psychiatrist is a licensed mental health professional who has earned a medical degree and been trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of mental and emotional disorders. As practicing medical doctors, psychiatrists can prescribe medications, guide clients through psychotherapy, and administer a number of other treatment options as needed.

Psychiatry is often effective for a wide variety of mental health issues because it addresses both the physical and mental components of mental health challenges. For example, if there are any biological factors contributing to your condition or physical symptoms that are interfering with your life, a psychiatrist can help solve those issues.

If you’ve been struggling with problems related to your mental health, speaking to a licensed virtual psychiatrist could make a difference.
