Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Smyrna
“How are you doing?” “Oh, I’m just fine.” “I’m good.” “I’m doing alright.” We ask several people a day how they’re doing and answer this question in return but rarely do we answer it honestly. If we did answer honestly, our responses would probably look something like this:
- “I’m struggling today. I had a bad start thanks to traffic, spilled coffee, and a screaming toddler!”
- “I’m feeling a little sad. I got into a pretty bad fight with my girlfriend earlier today.”
- “I’ve had better days. Work is so busy and the stress is really starting to get to me.”
- “I’m doing my best to keep it together, but I’m feeling sad a lot lately.”
We’ve learned to give a straightforward, simple response instead, so as not to extend the conversation about how we’re really feeling. Which is okay—if you don’t want to talk to your coworkers, your friends, or others about how you’re feeling, you certainly don’t have to. However, it is important that you pay attention to your actual feelings and when you aren’t feeling fine, good, or alright, you get to the bottom of it. This is what matters: how we respond to and manage our obstacles.
“Counseling has to do with intuition, with work on oneself, with the quietness of one’s mind and the openness of one’s heart.” –Ram Dass
Now, if you do want to talk to someone, but you don’t want that someone to be a loved one, consider talking to a counselor. Counselors are trained mental health professionals who talk to people for a living! They can help you understand, manage, and work through your emotions or any mental health challenges that you might be experiencing. If you think you could find benefit in working with a counselor, psychiatrist, or another mental health professional, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Smyrna. We’ve got you covered. Just call our office and we’ll set you up with one of our providers who will provide you with the care you’re looking for.

Speak With an Online Psychiatrist
When you’re dealing with a mental health issue such as anxiety, depression, or substance abuse, licensed psychiatrists can offer the help you need.
Online psychiatry is the study of mental illnesses from a medical perspective—through telehealth services. As such, our psychiatrists are equipped to help clients work through mental health conditions and their associated symptoms. They can evaluate your symptoms, monitor your progress over time, and prescribe medication if that is helpful for your condition.
Your treatment plan may also include some form of psychotherapy as well as recommendations for self-care. If you’re ready to give psychiatric counseling a try, make an appointment with a licensed psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling today.
