Tasha was starting to feel overwhelmed all the time. It was no longer just her high-stress job that made her feel like she was drowning in tasks and responsibilities. It was her home life, too. Her aged, chronically ill mother had moved in with her and her husband, and Tasha was feeling the burden of being her mom’s primary caregiver.
Her mother’s presence and demands had started to take a toll on Tasha’s relationship with her husband. They never seemed to get quality time alone together. On the rare occasions when their schedules overlapped and they could share a meal, Tasha and her husband spent the time arguing about finances or Tasha’s mother. And though Tasha’s work had let her work remotely for a while so she could be home with her mom, they wanted her to return to the office.
Everything just felt like too much to Tasha. She knew that she needed to find better coping strategies for her stress and anxiety, but she didn’t feel like she had the time or the money to see a professional therapist. What should she do?
Tasha could benefit from scheduling an online appointment with a licensed therapist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Conroe. By choosing online (virtual) therapy instead of in-person therapy, Tasha will have more flexibility in scheduling her appointments. She can even meet with her therapist in the evening after her mother retires to her bedroom. The counselors at Thriveworks can help support clients through their depression, anxiety, stress, and other mental health and behavioral issues. Our licensed providers can deliver the exceptional care that everyone deserves, and their sessions are usually covered by health insurance.
When Should I Reach out for Mental Health Support?
Sometimes it takes a loved one to point out when you’re not acting like yourself, or you seem to be suffering. Maybe you’ve been isolating yourself more and more. Maybe your friends have noticed an increase in repetitive, compulsive behaviors. All kinds of signs can indicate that it’s time to seek professional help. You don’t need to suffer alone. You can get the support you need to overcome obstacles and achieve your Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Conroe.
What’s the Difference Between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist?
The main, practical difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist is that a psychiatrist can prescribe medications to people experiencing the symptoms of a mental condition. Both professions can provide psychotherapy. Psychologists are usually PsyDs or PhDs. They can be counseling psychologists or clinical psychologists. Psychiatrists are MDs who graduated from medical school. Other types of mental health providers you may encounter at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Conroe include the following:

- Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), who provide counseling/therapy for couples and families
