Frequently asked questions

If you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, or another mental health concern, it can impact all aspects of your life. You may become distant in your relationships, struggle in your career or even find it difficult to enjoy your favorite activities. When faced with a physical ailment, it’s perfectly reasonable to see a doctor for professional advice. Why shouldn’t mental and emotional health be treated with the same importance?

While our hectic lives can threaten to sideline our emotional well-being, paying attention to mental and behavioral health is important. It’s a good idea to take harmful emotional and mental patterns seriously before they become long-term problems. If you’re feeling “stuck” and don’t know what to do, there is no shame in visiting a specialist who can provide the guidance and support you need to get back on track.

For many people, asking for help with mental and emotional issues can be extremely difficult. You may think you simply need to be stronger and push on. Or perhaps you think there’s simply something wrong with you that can’t be fixed.

Keep in mind that you are not alone; many people struggle with mental health issues and the good news is that many of them are highly treatable. They don’t have to stop you from enjoying your life.

If you’ve been thinking about speaking to a mental health counselor, make an appointment with a therapist today at Thriveworks Counseling Baton Rouge.

Is Counseling or Therapy Right for Me?

While more and more people are speaking openly about their mental health to spread awareness, many myths persist. One of them is that you should only see a licensed counselor if you’re dealing with severe symptoms or suicidal thoughts.

While these are issues that therapists and clinical psychologists can help with, mental and emotional problems take many forms. Some clients may be dissatisfied with the direction their lives have taken while others may have a difficult time getting over troubling events from their childhood. For these and many other issues, visiting a licensed counselor can offer a helpful perspective.

There are many reasons that people visit a therapist. These are just a few:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Family issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Thoughts of suicide and self-harm
  • Apathy
  • General feelings of hopelessness
  • Eating disorders

This list is by no means complete. If you’ve been experiencing any of these or other symptoms, you may want to consider talking to a mental health professional like a clinical psychologist, family therapist, or social worker at Thriveworks Counseling in Baton Rouge, LA.
