Why Seek Counseling or Psychiatry?

If you are seeking therapy or counseling, the reason may be very serious and traumatic, or it may be simply in pursuit of career- or life coaching. Our lives have many problems and issues on a daily basis. Trouble in our relationships, our career, our children, or in our extended family, are very common. We are all flawed individuals, and our issues multiply when we are together. When you connect with Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Columbia, we can help diagnose the problems you are facing.

The reasons that individuals, families, and couples seek therapy or counseling are unique and individualized in every situation. If you are dealing with a mental health issue, such as depression or anxiety, this may be impairing your ability to function normally in daily life. On the other hand, in coaching, people are looking to achieve more and make their goals and dreams a reality. They may be simply looking for a short pause button during their week in which to regroup.

People of all ages can benefit from speaking with a coach or counselor, from the very young to the very mature. We can match you with a Thriveworks provider that meets your needs. It may not be an easy decision, but it is a very important and meaningful decision.

Reasons to pursue counseling or psychiatry may include:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Sexual issues
  • Couples counseling
  • Career coaching
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Problems with a child
  • Stress management
  • Divorce recovery
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

This is by no means an exhaustive list. When you read through it, perhaps you were able to identify the issue that you are facing immediately. Or perhaps you did not see your personal problem and feel discouraged. There is no need to feel this way. The problems we deal with on a daily basis may be so complicated, unique, and personal, it is difficult to sum them up into a bullet point or a few words. Every human is unique, as are their problems. We can put you into contact with a Thriveworks provider in Columbia, SC that has experience dealing with your unique area of need. We will match you with the perfect provider, whether it’s a counselor, psychiatrist, or both!

What Is a Psychiatrist and How Can They Help?

Psychiatrists are a specialized type of provider, one that you may not be as familiar with as a therapist or counselor. As medical doctors who are often licensed therapists, too, psychiatrists assist clients with more persistent or severe mental health conditions or concerns that may not be well managed by counseling or therapy alone. While everyone’s needs and challenges are unique, a psychiatrist can assist you by: 

  • Prescribing helpful medication to use with or without counseling services.
  • Diagnosing and treating many types of mental health conditions and disorders

Psychiatrists can also help with behavioral or emotional conditions that may be difficult to manage with therapy or counseling alone, including: 

  • ADHD 
  • OCD 
  • Eating disorders
  • Major depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • PTSD 
  • And many other mental health conditions

Having an open conversation with a psychiatrist about what’s troubling you can help them to understand and better treat the symptoms that you’re suffering from. Not everyone will be prescribed medication, and your treatment preferences will be a vital part of your experience in psychiatric care. The psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Columbia are here to help you set and achieve your personal goals and enjoy a renewed quality of life. 

Benefits of Online Psychiatry at Thriveworks

At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Columbia, our psychiatric services are completely virtual, which means unprecedented convenience and privacy for you. Online psychiatry might be appealing to those wishing to: 

  • Reduce your existing anxiety and stress: Meeting virtually can be a lot less stressful than meeting your provider in person. Online therapy is a go-to resource for making psychiatric treatment as comfortable as possible. 
  • Connect with their psychiatrist from anywhere: There’s no need to travel to a brick-and-mortar office to fill a prescription or to attend a therapy session. 
  • Add flexibility to their schedule: For those who are busy, traveling, or just tired, getting the psychiatric services you need shouldn’t be harder. We offer weekend and evening session times, just for you.  
  • Prioritize their mental health: Online therapy is an easy way for those who take care of elderly relatives or are watching children find time to prioritize their own needs, as well. 

You’ll be able to rest easy and get the most out of your online session, knowing that your privacy is protected and ensured: Our online psychiatrists follow intensive HIPAA guidelines, the same used in our in-person sessions.
