Making the decision to change and working on yourself takes courage, and it is ok to ask for help in the process. Many people need guidance on how, when, and what changes to make, and mental health professionals—who treat individuals, couples, families, and children—are here to help. Social expectations may stigmatize mental health services as embarrassing or weak, but at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Bethlehem, we know that prioritizing your well-being is smart.
Seeking help and making changes takes determination, strength, and usually, some help. Acknowledging a difficult reality and making necessary changes is often a short-term loss for a long-term gain. The discomfort people initially feel as they step out of their comfort zones often has a big payout. Consider these scenarios:
- You have a job that works for now, but you are not satisfied.
- Your loved one has passed away. Grief is a strange and difficult feeling. You have having trouble focusing at work and connecting with your family.
- After a big move, your teens are having trouble in their new school.
- You and your partner have been together for a while and are beginning to think about marriage. It’s a big decision, and you suggest meeting with a counselor before making the commitment.
Benefits of Online Psychiatry
Our completely virtual psychiatric sessions can offer valuable insights into many forms of mental and emotional disorders.
As licensed medical professionals, they can evaluate psychological symptoms as well as physical ones to determine an appropriate treatment plan.
When it comes to treatment, there are various tools a psychiatrist can use. Some clients require medication in order to mitigate symptoms or address underlying biological factors that may be contributing to their situation. In these instances, psychiatrists can directly prescribe medication and monitor their clients’ progress and any potential side effects.
Psychiatrists can also perform various forms of talk therapy as part of treatment. To find out more about how psychiatric counseling can benefit you, contact the experienced telepsychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Bethlehem.
