Work With a Counseling Psychologist in Cedar Rapids, IA

You go to the doctor when you’re sick. You try to get enough sleep, eat well, and stay active. You care for your physical health but what about your mental health? It is just as important to our well-being, yet many people push mental health issues on the back burner where they simmer until they are finally ready to boil over.

There are many reasons why people don’t prioritize their mental health. They may feel embarrassed to admit they have a problem or they may think they don’t have the time to fit counseling sessions into their busy schedules.

But at Thriveworks, our caring psychologists make it easy to take the first step. We offer remote therapy appointments seven days a week so you can squeeze us in without ever stepping foot outside your home or office. Simply pick up the phone or open a video chat link and you’ll be on your way to taking control of your life again.

Whether you’re struggling with mood swings, anxiety, depression, or something else entirely, or clinical psychologists are ready to help you build a better life. Reach out to schedule an appointment at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA today.

When Should I See a Psychologist?

A psychologist is skilled to treat a wide range of disorders. They can treat mild cases of anxiety and depression, and they can also work to treat more severe conditions like borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.

Here are some of the reasons people reach out to a licensed psychologist:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Anger and stress management issues
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Trauma
  • Sexual, physical, or emotional abuse
  • Addictive behaviors
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Major life transitions
  • Low self-worth or body image issues
  • Behavioral issues

If you’re experiencing one or more of these conditions, don’t hesitate to contact Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA. When you’re ready for counseling, we’re ready to support you through your mental health journey.

How Can a Psychologist Help?

A licensed psychologist may hold a variety of degrees. After earning a bachelor’s degree, many go on to receive a master’s in behavioral analysis, counseling psychology, and/or clinical psychology. This extensive education gives them the ability to diagnose and treat many kinds of mental and emotional disorders.

As part of your counseling, a Thriveworks psychologist may use one or more forms of talk therapy to help you work through your struggles. Some examples of this could include:

  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT encourages clients to learn coping mechanisms to more effectively regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and reduce self-destructive behaviors.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT focuses on challenging and reframing harmful thought processes in order to make behavioral changes and mitigate symptoms.
  • Art therapy: Art therapy uses art and creativity to help people relieve stress and identify underlying issues.

Other forms of therapy include interpersonal therapy, exposure therapy, and psychoanalysis. If your psychologist feels medication may be beneficial alongside therapy, they may refer you to a Thriveworks psychiatrist who can make that determination.

Working with a psychologist can help you lead a happier life, build stronger relationships, and take back your passions and hobbies once again. Click or call to schedule an appointment with the licensed clinical psychologists at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA.

Susan is a compassionate, inspirational, and insightfull therapist. She helped me through the toughest moments of my life and taught me techniques to enjoy living, rather than just scraping by.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
Susan Wills is an amazing counselor. I have been going to her for several months now and she has helped me with adjusting to my new life in Texas and overcoming the challenges that life presents. Susan is a great listener, can relate to her clients and provides meaningful homework assignments to help her clients meet their goals. I have seen several counselors in the past and I have made more progress working with Susan by attending sessions and doing the work necessary outside of our sessions to improve my mental health.

A Caring and Helpful Counselor

★★★★★
Susan Wills has been my therapist for a few months now. I had never attended therapy before, but felt I needed to in order to get my emotions in order. She is so good at her help, that never feel like I've been through "therapy", but always leave her office in a much better mood and can more easily handle the stresses and difficulties my life seems to bring. I would recommend her to anyone, especially if you've never had therapy or counseling before.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
I believe everything happens for a reason. I've had difficulty even meeting a therapist. I've had therapists cancel on me before even meeting them.. and then there was Susan. She has already done wonders on me and my self-growth. She gives you resources and outlets to use in between sessions. She takes the time to listen and make you feel valued and cared for. She is having me practice gratitude and to be honest, she is what I am most grateful for at this stage in my life. I feel stronger everyday now. Please know she is one of a kind and deserves your time if you are willing. Anyone is lucky to have her!!!
