Therapy and Counseling in Burlington – Mental Health Services, MA

The world is full of unexpected challenges and trials. At the very moment we think we have everything figured out, everything changes. We are unexpectedly laid off, our spouse says they want a divorce, a teenager gets arrested; the list of possibilities are endless. The big question is how we react when faced with these situations. Sometimes, we are able to move forward with confidence and perseverance; other times, we are shaken to our core, questioning everything we thought we knew.

When you call to connect with a Thriveworks Associate Provider in Burlington, you are taking the first step in putting your life back on track. Perhaps you have been considering counseling, therapy, or coaching for a long time, and are finally ready to take the next step towards your happiness. Why wait any longer? Pick up the phone and start on your journey to happiness and fulfillment. We have providers standing by, ready to connect with you.

Most of us would not ignore a physical pain that does not go away. But many of us do ignore emotional pain that does not go away. For some reason, we often put our emotional and psychological health on the back burner. We experience pain, loss, frustration, anxiety, turmoil, and upheaval, but do not take the time to deal with the emotions and feelings that these experiences bring.

Why Should I Make Time for Thriveworks Burlington Counseling?

Counseling and therapy is a time set aside to deal with and give respect to your innermost thoughts and feelings. In counseling and therapy, we are often trying to help you be able to deal with your daily life more easily If we were to rate a person’s mental health, we could use a scale from -10 to +10. Negative ten would be very painful, almost unable to function in daily life. Some forms of counseling attempts to bring someone from a very painful position, such as a -8, to neutral, at 0. Other forms of counseling, such as premarital counseling or life coaching, may attempt to bring someone from a neutral 0 to a +5 or even a +10. Every person who pursues counseling does so for different and personal reasons, and with different and personal goals.

Some age ranges or cultural groups may look upon counseling and therapy with fear, anxiety, or shame. While this can be very common in certain areas or within different families, it is completely unnecessary. In fact, a person that is looking into therapy should take pride in their decision and their commitment to their mental health. It is a wise and mature decision, and one that can be extremely beneficial to your health.

Thriveworks Associate Providers are prepared to help you deal with any problem or issue you may bring to our office. You do not need to be afraid that your issue or secret will shock us. We are experienced professionals, trained to deal with the issues that you deal with privately. Whether you are seeking counseling for yourself as an individual, your marriage, your child, or your family, we are ready and able to help.
There are many reasons to seek counseling. These may include:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Couples counseling
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Problems with a child or teenager
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Depression
  • Sexual issues
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

If you were not immediately able to place yourself into one of these categories, no need to be concerned. It is impossible to list all of the reasons that prompt individuals, couples, and families to pursue therapy. Whatever you are facing, we can face it together. Thriveworks is a safe and open environment without judgment or fear. Every person is unique, as is their innermost worries, fears, goals, and dreams.

What If a Loved One Needs Help?

Maybe you have come to this page because your marriage is struggling. Whether you have been married for one year or fifty years, you know that marriage is not always rainbows and roses. Days are long, there is little time to connect, and bad habits of poor communication are not easily changed. We take each other for granted, and have trouble expressing our true feelings. A Thriveworks Associate Provider can help you restore your relationship, and remember the love that you once had for one another. We can help you both decide what the best next step is for each member of the relationship.

Maybe you have come to this page because you are looking for help for a child. Young children are usually unable to express their need for therapy. But if your child has experienced a trauma, or major life transition, they may be dealing with emotions and fears that they are unable to communicate. If you are living with a wayward teenager, every day can be a struggle. Slammed doors, late nights, screaming, silence, and secrecy; some of this is common in adolescence, but it can also be a sign of more serious trouble. If you, as a parent, have an instinctual feeling that your child needs help, that should not be ignored. A Thriveworks Associate Provider may be able to reach your child or teenager in a way that you cannot as a parent.

If you have a loved that is struggling with addiction, it can be difficult to live with them, and lonely to live without them while they are lost in a sea of addiction. No matter how much you beg and plead for a loved one to get help, the effort is futile until the person with addiction actually wants help. When your loved one is finally ready for help, a Thriveworks Associate Provider can walk alongside your family in recovery and rebuilding your life together. When one person is battling addiction, the whole family unit is affected. Thriveworks Associate Providers will work not only with the person struggling with the serious issue, but also with the family as a whole.
