Baltimore Loneliness Counseling

Loneliness Counseling in Baltimore, MD—Work Through Lonely Feelings with a Professional

Feeling lonely and / or socially isolated can lead to feelings of hopelessness. This can lead to physical pain in the body, suicidal thinking, substance abuse, and depression. People dealing with loneliness can have issues sleeping, can lose or increase their appetite, and can be irritable. There is a bright side though: there are solutions, of which a loneliness counselor at Thriveworks Baltimore, MD can help you find.

Start By Admitting Where You’re at Today

You can’t move forward to tomorrow if you don’t acknowledge where you are today. While it’s normal to feel frustrated, angry, or embarrassed by your feelings of loneliness, remember that everyone feels lonely once in a while. However, for many people, these feelings are solved by ending their social isolation. For others, it doesn’t go away on its own.

The first step is to admit that you’re lonely and that you can’t get better without help. There is nothing wrong with that. When anyone runs across something they don’t have the tools to battle on their own, the first step they should take is to head to the experts for expert advice.

However, we also understand that it’s not that easy – for a number of reasons. When a person is socially isolated it can become difficult to admit that they actually do need people around. For those who aren’t socially isolated but are just lonely, it can feel insulting to friends and family to admit that they’re lonely even with them around. It can feel like there must be something wrong with them if they’re lonely with so much love in their lives.

Take Control of Your Own Emotions

Don’t get caught up in the idea that you should just get over your loneliness. There are many underlying causes that can lead to this option. Most steps you can take on your own are nothing more than a Band-Aid – they might help for a while but eventually the situation will get worse.

That’s where Thriveworks Baltimore loneliness counseling comes in. We can help you find the right solutions for your unique needs.

Someone who understands

★★★★★
In these tense and uncertain times, it’s really helpful to be able to talk to someone who I know shares similar experiences, can understand where I’m coming from, and can help me understand how to do the best I can to improve myself in my circumstances. Tia is a great listener with a gentle, calming demeanor. She knows how to laugh and how to really listen. She’s really helped me through some tough times and encouraged me throughout. Don’t know what I’d do without her!

Sandy has been very helpful

★★★★★
As first-generation immigrants we have a touch time raising kids in US. Being caught between two different cultures, our teenager daughter intuitively rejects parents' culture and is often unrespectful toward parents and her sibling. But we as parents have no relatives in US for counseling. Talking to Sandra has been very helpful as she instructed us how to communicate with our confused teenager, how to guide her through the difficult time. Thank you, Sandy!
