Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge, Your Local Mental Health Service
When was the last time you did something really nice for yourself? Here are a few examples:
- You took a mental health day.
- You prioritized your needs instead of someone else’s.
- You treated yourself to a night of your favorite self-care activities.
A lot of people have a hard time recalling the last time they treated themselves with the same kindness that they do others. This is, perhaps, one reason why many people forego mental health services—even those who really need it.
Counseling helps people work through their unique mental health challenges and ultimately live a happier, more successful life. That’s the goal at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge. We have licensed counselors, therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists who are dedicated to this mission and able to carry it out.

This is that “really nice something” you can do for yourself.

We can all benefit from talking to a mental health professional at some point in life. In fact, many people decide to work with a counselor throughout their lifetime or in different seasons of life. Counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists serve to help their clients work through their mental health challenges properly, which involves understanding the problem, what may have caused it, and how they can best manage it.

There is no shame in reaching out for help. When you struggle physically, be it an illness or an injury, you schedule an appointment with a doctor, right? There is no difference between scheduling an appointment with a doctor when your physical health depends on it and scheduling an appointment with a mental health professional when your mental health depends on it.
Should I Consider Seeing an Online Psychiatrist?
