At Thriveworks in Carlsbad, CA, one of the biggest factors we’ve found that affects people’s decisions to seek therapy is the lingering stigma that many feel comes along with seeking mental health services. Whether it’s stemming from themselves or the biases of others, mental health care gets a bad rap as being an indication of someone’s weakness, interdependency, and instability.
The truth is that therapy and counseling services are quite the opposite. At Thriveworks, our mental health professionals are a powerful tool for people to take charge of their emotions, habits, and lifestyle and create a better future for themselves.
Even though we have several types of providers that form our nationwide network, our psychologists form the backbone of our therapy services. Psychologists are licensed therapists, and it’s their job to assist everyday people in dealing with common mental health issues and conditions that may hold clients back from reaching their true potential. Therapy is about having the courage to open up; because without an honest client-provider relationship, our psychologists can’t provide their expert insight and experience to assist.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not you’d like to speak with a psychologist, we welcome you. If you’re debating whether or not to give therapy or counseling another chance, we’d like to be part of that. And if you’re just looking for a way to improve your overall wellbeing, the Thriveworks team in Carlsbad, CA is looking forward to hearing from you.
How Can A Psychologist Help Me?
Psychologists, like many other mental health professionals, assist clients in managing and mitigating the effects of different mental health issues and conditions that are disruptive to their everyday life. Our clients are ordinary people, just like you, who just want to get the most out of their experience. Even though everyone will feel the symptoms of mental illness differently, some common signs of problems include:
- Constant fatigue
- Unusually short temper
- Feeling depressed for days at a time
- Unresolved traumatic events or turmoil in relationships
- Difficulty relaxing or sleeping
- Feeling withdrawn or anti-social
If you’re facing any of these issues, they aren’t something you need to navigate alone. By reaching out to our team of psychologists in Carlsbad, CA, you’ll be able to get professional mental health care that’s personalized for you.
But psychologists don’t just listen to clients; while it’s an essential part of their job, they also work to help people promote positive changes in their lives by:
- Teaming with them to implement ways to cope with stress and to navigate uncomfortable situations or thoughts
- Using sessions to discuss how to compromise in relationships/interactions and fostering compassion for others
- Helping them regulate intense emotions like anger or anxiety—and educating them to express their viewpoints in healthy and respectful ways
- Cultivating a positive mindset with an emphasis on personal growth and development
The point of therapy isn’t to eliminate our imperfections—it’s about being the best version of ourselves.
