Boca Raton Counseling at Thriveworks, Psychiatry
Think back to a time when you were in pain: your mind might immediately pull in a memory from childhood of you falling off your bike, or a memory from just the other day of you bumping your thigh on the side of your bed frame. In any case, you likely tended to your injury and cared for it the way you needed to. You put a bandage on any cuts and ice on any bruises—and, as a result, there are no major outstanding injuries or complications today.
We tend to our physical pain with care and with urgency, but the same can’t be said for our mental or emotional pain. Instead of working to recover from our internal pain (as we would our physical pain), we tend to brush it to the side. We refuse to face it head-on and hope that the pain as well as the cause of injury will resolve itself.
In reality, though, resolving mental or emotional pain takes real care and intervention, just as resolving physical pain does! And sometimes, this intervention involves working with a therapist, counselor, psychiatrist, or psychologist.
Are you looking for Boca Raton counseling? You’ve come to the right place. Therapists, counselors, and psychologists work hard to help their clients overcome whatever roadblock is in their way. This roadblock might be a serious mental illness like depression or anxiety, a relationship issue like jealousy, an individual challenge like low self-esteem or stress, or another problem entirely.
Our therapists and counselors have the knowledge, skills, and training to help you achieve greater happiness and success in life. If you think you could benefit from working with a mental health professional, to properly resolve or manage a mental roadblock or emotional pain, give our office a call today. We are conveniently located near the Delray Beach area and we are ready to help you, in in-person counseling or online counseling—whichever you prefer.

Mental Health Help for Loved Ones
Maybe you aren’t interested in working with a mental health provider, but you think that a loved one could find value in partnering up with a therapist, counselor, or psychologist. The truth is that your friend or family member must decide for him or herself that they want to explore therapy or counseling, but you can offer them support on their journey.
Additionally, if a loved one is seriously struggling, it’s important that you take care of yourself. While your needs might not be your primary focus right now, you should remember to care for your physical, mental, and emotional health properly, especially in the midst of trouble with a loved one. Thriveworks Counseling in Boca Raton is here to offer you help and support.
Psychological Testing and Assessment
In addition to our counseling services, we are also happy to offer psychological testing and assessment. Psychological testing can help us understand why we might behave, act, or think a certain way. It can lead to the diagnosis and treatment of a mental health condition, acceptance into a private school or higher-grade level, and in general, a better understanding of oneself!
Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Boca Raton, we offer a few specific psychological tests. These include:
- IQ testing: This measures one’s intellectual potential. It can help to reveal what one is good at as well as weaker areas.
- ADHD testing: ADHD testing helps healthcare providers and individuals determine if one has ADHD.
- Achievement testing: This form of testing measures an individual’s level of skills and knowledge. Typically, they are given to children whose scores are compared with those of their peers.
- Personality testing: These tests look at one’s motivations, needs, roadblocks, etc. It can aid in reparations made between family members, partners, and others. It can also help diagnose personality disorders.
If you are looking for one of the above tests or you think that you (or your child) could benefit from one of the above tests, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Boca Raton.
Consider Psychiatry Counseling with Thriveworks
Many of those struggling with mental and emotional disorders find the help they need in the form of psychiatry counseling. Psychiatrists look at mental illness from both a physical and mental standpoint, considering their interconnectedness and the resulting symptoms.
Clients visit psychiatrists for many reasons, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders just to name a few. Psychiatric services can be extremely helpful for a wide variety of conditions ranging from mild to severe. Treatment plans will vary from client to client and can include psychotherapy, medication, or some combination of the two. If medication is required, your psychiatrist will be able to handle the associated prescription and work with you to mitigate any side effects.
