Work with a Practicing Psychologist in Chesapeake, VA 

Julia hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. She’s never described herself as an anxious person, but lately, she can’t shake her anxious thoughts and feelings. For most of her day, she feels worried and uneasy for no apparent reason. She’s called out of work now for three days in a row and she’s been avoiding her friends and family—the only time she feels at peace is when she’s alone. But she knows she can’t hide forever; she doesn’t want to hide, but she doesn’t know what else to do.

A psychologist can prove valuable in Julia’s current situation. More specifically, they can help her better understand why she’s feeling anxious on a daily basis and come up with a plan for managing it. Julia can work alongside her psychologist in therapy and possibly benefit from anxiety medication—or both! Her psychologist can better determine which course of treatment will benefit Julia once she meets her and understands all of her needs. This is one of countless examples in which a psychologist can make a major difference in someone’s life. Psychologists can also help in instances of relationship problems, overwhelming levels of stress, difficult emotions, grief, and more.

If you’ve found yourself in a mentally draining or troubling situation, please consider employing the help of a mental health professional. Thriveworks Chesapeake has skilled, caring psychologists on staff who are devoted to providing their clients with a premium level of care.  They have the expertise, the knowledge, and the experience to assist you. And they will provide you with a personalized treatment plan designed to meet your needs. You can book your session today. All you have to do is call our Thriveworks Chesapeake office at (757) 414-6427.

Can I Benefit from Working with a Psychologist?

Some are intimidated by the word “psychologist,” but the truth is that psychologists are normal people just like us! Only they are equipped with knowledge, skills, training, and experience that most of us don’t have. This toolbox allows them to help people better manage common life challenges and mental health problems. There’s no shame in asking for help, especially when you are suffering. In times of suffering, we need not shy away from help or support. We should embrace it instead. Here are a few people who could benefit from a psychologist’s assistance:

  1. Ana and Justin can’t stop bickering. Half the time, they don’t even know what they’re bickering about or why. But they both know that there’s an underlying issue that needs to be discussed. A psychologist can lead or mediate this discussion and help Ana and Justin get back to a happy place in their relationship.
  2. Matt has always had a special relationship with his grandma—they’ve been best friends since the day he was born. Now that she has passed, he doesn’t know what he’s going to do. He’s struggling to get out of bed, focus at work, and be around his other family members. A psychologist can help him work through his difficult emotions and grief this tough loss properly.
  3. Amanda left her job 5 years ago and she hasn’t worked since. Well, unless you count her gig as a full-time mom! Now that her son is in school, though, she has some time to spare and decides to return to work. At first, she’s overwhelmed with excitement. But quickly her excitement is replaced by anxiety, stress, and loneliness. She doesn’t quite mesh with her new coworkers and she doesn’t know how to get back into the groove of working. A psychologist can assist her during this major life transition!

As you can see from these examples, a psychologist can help his or her clients work through relationship issues, grieve the loss of a loved one, and adapt during major life transitions. This is, of course, a short list of the many instances in which a psychologist can prove helpful.
