David is happily married and a father to two children. He’s a busy guy—most of his free time is spent with family and friends, and he’s the last person you’d hear complaining about that. While he considers himself to be a pretty positive person, there are periods lasting for days or even weeks when David struggles with feelings of apathy and sadness. He’s not always sure what’s bothering him, so his first inclination is to remain silent.
Unfortunately, last week, David was told by one of his daughters that his extended periods of silence were concerning. He knows he doesn’t want his mental health concerns to intrude into his family life, but opening up about what’s bothering him seems impossible, especially when he’s not sure what’s going on himself.
If David’s dilemma sounds like something that’s familiar to you, then it may be time to consider if talking to a mental health professional could provide you with the relief you’re searching for. Talking to others about mental health concerns can be intimidating, especially when we want to appear like we have it all together for the ones that we love. However, choosing to connect with a counselor or therapist at Thriveworks Counseling Billings can make a big difference and provide you with the tools you need to better manage and cope with life’s ups and downs.
How Can a Therapist Help Me?
Everyone’s mental health needs are different, and our providers are well aware. Each of our clients has a personalized treatment plan, one that supports their independence, and provides them with the tools and coping strategies they need to enjoy a better quality of life. Our psychotherapists help clients who are:
- Having difficulty coping with and regulating work or family-related stress
- Difficulty regulating emotions like anger or grief
- Feeling sad or hopeless for an extended period of time
- Experiencing issues in their marriage or relationship
- Noticing that anxiety and racing thoughts are upsetting their daily life
Regardless of the type of mental health professional that you’re paired with, sharing your experience is an integral part of the healing experience. Even though it may seem like talking to someone you’re unfamiliar with is invasive or unnecessary, the truth is that it’s the best way for you and your provider to start making the changes you need to start enjoying better mental health.
