Jen has a habit of downplaying her feelings. She brushes it off—the hurt, the disappointment, the anger—and tells herself it isn’t a big deal. It seems to help in the moment, but all of those emotions take a toll, of which she suffers from later.
Jen must recognize, explore, and manage these emotions instead of sweeping them under the rug. Doing so will support better overall mental health and well-being… but she doesn’t know where to start.
Jen can start by working with a counselor or therapist. Counselors, therapists, and other mental health professionals have the knowledge and the skills to help us better understand and regulate our emotions. This is but one of many areas in which they can prove helpful. They can also help us manage mental health conditions, cope with stress, grieve properly, work through relationship issues, and tackle other challenges that prove harmful to our mental health.
“Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.” –Mariska Hargitay
To begin working with a mental health professional, you need only schedule an appointment! It’s just like scheduling an appointment to see a doctor for a physical problem or concern you might have. The good news, though, is that at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Edison, we can often get new clients in for their first appointment within 24 hours of their call.
We don’t want you to wait weeks or months to meet with a counselor, therapist, life coach, or psychologist. We want to get you the help that you’re looking for as soon as possible. That’s what we’ll do when you call us to set up your first session.
Mental Health Services at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Edison
The mental health challenges that we might encounter in any given day are numerous. One day we might feel happy and content; the next we might feel down and unsatisfied with life. Symptoms of a mental illness can begin to develop, difficult feelings can arise, stress can build, and relationship issues can grow from one minute to the next. This is something we must accept.
That said, we need not just endure these symptoms, feelings, stress, and conflicts. Instead, we should do our best to work through them, and if we need a little help, reach out to a mental health professional.
The first thing your Thriveworks counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist will do is get to know you–your specific challenges and needs. Then, they will be able to design a treatment plan to address those challenges and needs. This individualized approach to treatment is important to healing and getting the most out of therapy.
Your therapist or counselor will utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques and methods to help you achieve your goals. Some of these methods might include traditional talk therapy, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, art therapy, and more.
Know that choosing to work with a Thriveworks mental health professional is a smart decision. We are dedicated to providing accessible, uplifting care to all of our clients. We believe the cornerstone to quality care starts with putting you and your needs first.
