Bensalem, PA Counseling—Mental Health Services, Psychiatry

When we feel a cold or sore throat coming on, we go to the doctor. When we break a bone, we go to the hospital. When we have a ruthless toothache that refuses to go away, we go to the dentist. The point is that when something disturbs our physical health, we seek the professional help that we need to heal—and we don’t typically think twice about it.

 

Even those who despise going to the doctor give in when they know their health and wellbeing is at stake. But can the same be said for our mental health?

 

Fortunately, more and more people are seeking and receiving the mental health care they need. But some people are still hesitant to admit that they are struggling mentally or emotionally. It’s important for all of us to remember that our mental health is just as important as our physical health. And sometimes, when we’re struggling, we need some extra help and support.

 

If you are struggling and think that you could benefit from the help and support of a mental health professional, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Bensalem, PA. We have skilled, caring counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches in Bucks County who want nothing more than to help you live a happier, healthier life. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment and begin a new mental health journey in in-person or online counseling therapy.

When Should You Seek Mental Health Help?

Some people believe that the issues they struggle with are not severe enough to demand mental health help. In reality, though, counselors and therapists can (and are happy to) help clients with a wide range of problems, which vary in severity.

 

For example, someone who has fallen into a deep depression can benefit from working with a counselor, as can someone who just broke up with their significant other and is feeling a little down. No problem is too large or small for counseling or therapy. Here are a few more issues that might lead you to seek out mental health services:

 

  • Trauma or PTSD
  • Relationship issues such as poor communication and infidelity
  • Family turmoil and stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD/ADD
  • Major life transitions such as moving to a new city or starting a new job
  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of fulfillment
  • Goal-setting help
  • Behavioral problems in children
  • Hormonal changes in teens and adolescents
  • Divorce and separation
  • Financial strain and stress

 

If you need help with any of the above problems, consider working with a counselor, therapist, or life coach at Thriveworks Bensalem. If you need help with another problem that is not included in this list, you can still benefit from working with a mental health professional, either in-person or online. Our team consists of child therapists, marriage counselors, life coaches, depression therapists, and other mental health professionals who are readily available to help you. Call Thriveworks Counseling in Bensalem today to get started.

How Is Counseling Beneficial?

Sometimes, one’s nerves or fears keep them from seeking mental health services. While it’s okay to feel nervous or scared about seeing a counselor or therapist for the first time, it’s important to understand the value that you can find in working with a skilled provider. In fact, believing in this value will help you to get past those nerves and fears. Here’s an example of how counseling can prove valuable to one’s life:

 

Alex has been feeling depressed for the last few months. A week ago, he decided it was time to do something about it and booked a counseling appointment. As Alex prepares to meet his counselor for the first time, he feels nervous—but he pushes himself to go anyway.

 

Within the first 15 minutes, Alex can tell that his counselor actually cares about how he’s feeling and how it’s affected his life. He quickly loosens up.

 

As the session goes on, Alex opens up about his depression. And together, Alex and his counselor come up with a solid plan for learning how to manage this depression in his future sessions. He leaves looking forward to the next time he’ll see his counselor—and for the first time in a long time he feels hopeful about his future. With his newfound confidence, Alex is ready to take on any challenge that comes his way.

 

Everyone’s experience in counseling or therapy is different. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Bensalem will get to know you and then come up with an individualized plan of care that will best help you. Their goal is to create a safe space for you to talk openly about individual, couple, and family concerns. No matter if you’re having relationship problems or just need an extra boost of confidence, our office can provide you with guidance.

Over 35 years ive known frank

★★★★★
First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !

Talk Therapy that helps

★★★★★
I found Frank during a tough time in my life. I was dealing with some pretty heavy issues related to family and career and suffering from depression and severe anxiety. Frank listened and had a way of making me see things in a different (more positive) light. It's clear he cares deeply about others and genuinely wants to lessen their suffering. I highly recommend Frank as a counselor. His empathy and skills made him more than qualified to assist in my journey to wellness. Frank: thank you for all that you do. You have made my life less dark, and for that I am grateful.

Frank Yaeger

★★★★★
I first worked with Frank as a client. He was my personal trainer. He not only expanded my understanding and knowledge of physical health, but also gave me the confidence I need to far exceed my initial goals. As the role of a licensed professional counselor (LPC) I had invited Frank to be part of a three-person panel which included two Ph. D’s speaking on the topic of estrangement. The event went extremely well, and Frank’s contributions were very insightful, informative, and offered tangible methods to address estranged love ones. I highly recommend Frank as a therapist. He will provide unwavering empathy, ‘meet you where you are’ and provide the necessary interventions and compassion to have breakthroughs along your therapeutic journey

Frank is always striving to be a better version of himself. He has a level of passion for life and learning that I've rarely seen in others. He works on a holistic approach to life from every angle; whether for himself or with suggestions to others.
