Jake frequently finds it difficult to talk in public spaces. As he’s gotten older, managing his anxiety has been a constant challenge. In fact, he’s gone to great lengths to conceal the frustration and fear he’s faced with each time he needs to speak up at work. Dating someone has been nearly impossible, and he feels more distant from his friends and family than he’d like.
With his 30th birthday approaching, Jake feels like he’s at a crossroads. He knows that if he continues to isolate himself by letting his social anxiety control him, he’ll be lonely. But instead of facing his anxiety alone, Jake wants to talk to a mental health professional—someone with a clinical, practical understanding of anxiety. He hopes that by opening up to them, he can start to address the social anxiety that’s causing him so much pain.

How Can a Mental Health Professional Help?
Our providers help everyday people find relief and newfound quality of life through our mental health services. However, we offer several different types of mental health professionals to choose from, who can assist you with your anxiety in different ways. Our psychologists and therapists are a great option for those with mild or more manageable anxiety disorders. Psychologists and therapists can:
- Help family members or partners understand their loved one’s anxiety through relationship therapy or family counseling
- Use talk therapy or behavioral therapy techniques to promote your self-awareness
- Work with clients to help them develop coping mechanisms to use in the situations that matter most
And if you have a more persistent or severe case of anxiety, receiving treatment from one of our psychiatrists could be a more effective route. Psychiatrists are set apart by being both licensed medical doctors and therapists simultaneously. Psychiatrists can help with your anxiety by:
- Prescribing helpful medication that assists clients in managing the disruptive, damaging symptoms of anxiety
- Using a combination of prescription medications and therapy sessions to treat clients, as needed
Regardless of the mental health professional you’re matched with, anxiety can be a serious mental health condition that may worsen without proper professional attention. Rest assured, at Thriveworks in Cypress, TX our providers are not only industry-leading experts, but are also great listeners.
