Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charlottesville, Your Local Mental Health Service
Maddie is spiraling. She deems it a midlife crisis, but her friends and family members express concerns that it’s more serious than that—they think she’s exhibiting signs of anxiety and depression.
Maddie feels overwhelmed by racing thoughts and a feeling of impending doom. She also struggles with a lack of motivation, disinterest in things she used to love, and feelings of hopelessness. Overall, Maddie is suffering mentally and emotionally. And she doesn’t know what to do about it.
Like many of us, Maddie could benefit from seeing a mental health professional. A counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist could help her in several ways:
- They can offer professional insight into what Maddie is dealing with.
- If they determine that she is experiencing anxiety and/or depression, they can offer her a treatment plan.
- They can help Maddie work her way toward living a happier, healthier life.
Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental illnesses out there. We are all dealing with our own challenges, be it a mental illness, stress, relationship issues, lack of fulfillment, or general dissatisfaction with life.
Whatever it is, know that a mental health professional can offer help, support, and guidance that will help you manage your depression, anxiety, and other challenges. If you think you could benefit from talking to a counselor, therapist, life coach, psychologist, or psychiatrist, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charlottesville. We’re here to help and we can start today.
Should I Pursue Counseling? Will It Help Me?
A common mental health myth is that counseling services are only for those who are struggling with a severe problem, like schizophrenia or major depressive disorder. The truth is that while counseling can certainly help these individuals, it can prove to help everyone else, too.
The bottom line is that if you are interested in talking to a mental health professional at Thriveworks, you will be welcomed into a safe, supportive space.
Now, there are some common mental health challenges and life issues that push people to reach out for mental health help. For example:
- They’re feeling depressed, anxious, or unlike their normal selves (like Maddie)
- They feel stressed and need help managing it
- They’re having relationship problems
- They’ve experienced something traumatic
- They are grieving the loss of a loved one
- They’re unhappy or unsatisfied but don’t know why
If you can relate to any of the above, consider talking to a counselor about it. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charlottesville can help people better manage the above challenges and many others. They’d be honored to assist, guide, and support you through whatever is weighing you down.
Can Psychiatry Help Me?
Psychiatrists are mental health professionals with medical degrees and years of training in the treatment of various kinds of mental illnesses. This strong medical background is helpful in many instances and is especially useful when treating disorders with physical causes or symptoms.
Medication may be necessary for your treatment plan. If it is, your psychiatrist can prescribe it for you directly and help you manage any potential side effects. Psychiatrists also sometimes incorporate psychotherapy and self-care regimens into treatment, which can help clients make positive changes in their life.
