The youngest of four children, Estelle has never been without a playmate or companion. But after years of being doted on by her family, she decides she wants to try living away from home.
She finds a new job and moves to a much larger city three hours away. She’s initially excited about the new places, restaurants, and things to do. But after a few weeks in town and zero new friends, Estelle begins to feel isolated and anxious. There are so many people in this city but none of them seem right for her.
During a trip to a grocery store filled with other shoppers, she suddenly feels incredibly anxious and unable to breathe. She clutches a hand to her chest and fights to stay standing up straight. It feels like every eye in the store is on her. By the time she composes herself, she’s surrounded by a handful of people. Scared, she leaves the store and returns to her apartment.
Estelle doesn’t know what’s going on but she knows she doesn’t feel right mentally or physically. She makes an appointment with a mental health provider at Thriveworks and is seen the next day. Her psychiatrist assesses her symptoms and diagnoses her with separation anxiety disorder. He explains that what happened in the store was a panic attack and he creates a treatment plan to address Estelle’s physical, mental, and emotional needs.
Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. But when those feelings of anxiety become overwhelming, it may be best to see a licensed therapist, counselor, psychologist, psychiatrist, or another mental health professional. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, stress, or familial issues, a provider at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cleveland can offer assistance. Scheduling an appointment is as easy as calling or booking online, and our providers are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat a variety of mental illnesses and disorders in a courteous, compassionate manner.
Common Reasons To Visit a Counseling Center
When people imagine counseling or therapy, they may only imagine services for depression, PTSD, or other major illnesses. But psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals treat a variety of disorders, illnesses, and other issues that range in severity. Some of the most common challenges they address include:
- Grief and loss
- Career planning concerns
- Eating disorders
- Divorce or separation
- Child behavioral problems
- Relationship issues
Some of these issues listed in the above snapshot may resonate with you. But even if you don’t see your specific issue listed, you can rest assured that our providers in Beachwood help with a wide range of mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues.

Benefits of Online Psychiatry
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental and emotional disorders. Because of their medical school training, they can assess both your physical and mental symptoms and prescribe medications as needed. They can also administer various types of therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoanalysis, and dialectical behavior therapy.
Your provider will play a big role in your mental and emotional health journey. They will assess, diagnose, and treat your illness in accordance with your specific needs. But they’ll also provide preventative practices that can help you manage future challenges whether you’re in an appointment or in a triggering situation on your own.
Speaking to a licensed psychiatrist can help you gain a new perspective on solving problems and help you manage your symptoms efficiently and effectively. Schedule an online psychiatry appointment at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cleveland to start your treatment plan.
