“It’s hard to explain. It’s like there’s a huge weight on my chest all the time,” Alice explains to her mom.

“My mind is constantly racing.” For the last several months, Alice has felt this way. She’s weighed down by anxiety, in any and all circumstances. She feels anxious at work, in public, and even at home sometimes.

Her mind spirals out of control, as it considers worst-case scenarios and convinces Alice that everything is going to go horribly, horribly wrong. “I’m worried about you,” her mom replies. “You know that I am here for you, but I don’t think I can offer the help that you need.”

While Alice can certainly lean on her loved ones for support when she’s feeling anxious, she needs a little extra help from a mental health professional to get her anxiety under control. A therapist, counselor, or psychologist can help Alice better understand her anxious thoughts and feelings, as well as where this anxiety might stem from. More importantly, they can help her work her way back to a life she knows and loves.

This is the essence of what mental health professionals do. They help people to address the challenges in their life that are negatively affecting their mental health and wellbeing. They also help people to improve or maintain happiness and success. If you’re struggling, with anxiety or a completely different problem and think you’re a good fit for counseling, consider working with a mental health professional at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cary.

We have counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches on our team, all of whom have the ability to help you make meaningful changes and advancements in life. To schedule an appointment, simply give our office a call.

Should I Consider Online Psychiatry Counseling?

Psychiatry is a field of medicine that looks at mental health disorders from both a mental and physical perspective.

Psychiatrists are medical school graduates who go on to complete a psychiatry residency, meaning they are highly qualified to evaluate and treat symptoms associated with mental health disorders of all kinds. In addition to prescribing medications, they can also administer various forms of talk therapy, including psychotherapy, exposure therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Coping strategies and self-care recommendations are also common. If you’re interested in seeing what a licensed psychiatrist can do for you, make an online appointment today with Thriveworks Counseling in Cary, NC.

Managing Principal/Consultant

I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Debi Bell both in group and one on one settings for the past three years. I've found her to be an ardent and compassionate listener, one who is genuinely concerned about the growth and development of individuals. Dr. Bell's warm and inviting spirit is easily noticeable and carries throughout the counseling experience. The competencies she espouses allows her to effectively work with constituents across various backgrounds and experiences, including military backgrounds. Most noticeable in my interactions with Dr. Bell is that she is an indefatigable persister in helping clients achieve maximum results in the counseling experience.
