Experience effective therapy with a counselor or therapist in Cambridge

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.

If you are struggling to manage symptoms of a mental disorder (like depression or anxiety), your relationship is going downhill, or you’re simply feeling unhappy or unsatisfied with your current situation, consider pursuing counseling or psychiatry services at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge. This is that “really nice something” you can do for yourself.

When you’re ready to schedule your appointment, call Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge. We look forward to hearing from you and connecting you with one of our expert professionals.

Should I Talk to a Mental Health Professional?

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.

If you are struggling with any of the following, you can likely benefit from talking to a mental health professional:

  • Symptoms of depression or anxiety
  • Signs of another mental illness
  • Significant stress
  • Relationship problems
  • Marital issues
  • Difficult emotions
  • General unhappiness
  • The aftermath of trauma
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger

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?

Dealing with a mental health disorder can feel like fighting a war on multiple fronts. You may experience both mental and physical symptoms, or your career and home life may feel particularly unstable.

Mental illness can feel overwhelming but you’re not alone. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who can offer comprehensive diagnoses and treatment for a wide variety of mental health concerns. They can thoroughly evaluate your physical and psychological symptoms, conduct psychological testing, and offer a number of treatment options including prescription medication and talk therapy.

Effective and compassionate help is standing by at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge. Reach out to schedule your first online appointment with a psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry East Cambridge.
