Chicago (Riverwalk) Counseling and Psychiatry — Mental Health Support in IL

Sarah is listless, lacking energy, tired all the time. She cries a lot, doesn’t have much appetite, and constantly worries about everything. She is down and not her cheerful self but dismisses it by saying it is just because she lost her boyfriend. Her friends and family see it differently — they think she may be struggling with depression.

Suffering emotionally and mentally, Sarah doesn’t know how to move forward.

Like many people, Sarah would benefit from the help of a licensed mental health professional. Unfortunately, the topic of mental health sometimes goes undiscussed or is even hidden out of shame. The result is that people like Sarah end up suffering unnecessarily instead of getting the help they need.

If you broke a leg or had another physical health challenge, you would go to a medical professional for help. So it is with mental health challenges, like Sarah’s. Seeking out a mental health professional to help you in these situations is just as important.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Chicago, IL (Riverwalk), our highly trained and compassionate staff of mental health professionals can help you overcome your problems and build a happier and healthier future. Be it a counselor, therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist, our mental health professionals can get you on the right path.

Whether you are dealing with anxiety or depression or any other mental problem, give us a call at Thriveworks today to start your road to recovery.

Would I Benefit From Therapy or Counseling?

Therapy or counseling is not just for those suffering from severe mental illnesses and debilitating emotional disorders. Mental health services can help you reduce the stress of your daily life, reduce conflict in your relationships, and find meaning in your life.

There are many reasons people reach out for mental health services. Here are some of the more common ones:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Substance abuse
  • Stress
  • Death of a family member or friend
  • General feelings of unease
  • Financial or career problems
  • Family issues

Should I Speak With a Licensed Psychiatrist?

Unlike counselors and therapists, a psychiatrist is a medical doctor who can assess your physical condition as well as your mental health needs. Oftentimes, certain physical conditions such as lack of energy or sleep can accompany mental health conditions.

A psychiatrist can determine what is needed for both your mental and physical health and can administer the full range of treatment options to help you get better. That includes psychotherapy, prescription medication, and other forms of therapy.

If you feel you could benefit from a psychiatrist’s medical supervision, consider making an online appointment with a board-certified psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Chicago, IL (Riverwalk).
