Whether we like it or not, life comes with ups and downs that can really challenge our overall mental health and wellbeing. Taking care of ourselves starts with our minds because nothing will be positive if we’re not happy. Take the Gallagher family from the popular TV series Shameless.
While yes, they are the poster family for family therapy, a lot of them could greatly benefit from working through their individual problems too. Are you like…
- Fiona, who is juggling being a full-time caretaker, a business owner, and a stable partner in her relationships?
- Lip, who struggles to stay away from harmful habits?
- Ian, who is having identity issues and struggles to deal with his bipolar disorder?
- Debbie, who is balancing being a single new mom and working full-time?
Everyone has something going on that may put a damper on their mood. For some, talking to trusted friends or family members is the only outlet they need to feel better. For others, they might not have healthy coping mechanisms and that’s when trusted therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and life coaches come into play.
Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Flagstaff has professional, compassionate, and experienced guidance available. No matter what challenge you’re currently facing, working with a trusted mental health professional can give you the guidance and strength to manage it, overcome it, and move forward.

How Mental Health Counseling and Therapy Can Help You Thrive
As we briefly touched on earlier, therapy is designed to help you work through a myriad of challenges that life presents you with. This can be everything from tackling career concerns to managing a mental illness.
There is a stigma around mental health that you’re “weak” if you need to go to therapy. However, this is far from the truth. When you break a bone or come down with the flu, what’s your first instinct? Probably not to tough it out. You’ll most likely head straight to the doctor. So why don’t we do the same when we are hurting mentally? Choosing to talk to a therapist is a smart decision. By feeling better mentally, your overall health and wellbeing can improve.
At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Flagstaff, we help clients work through many different issues to help them start thriving. Some of the more common reasons why people come in includes:
- Coping with the loss of a loved one
- Overcoming a major life change such as moving or starting a new job
- General unhappiness
- Relationship issues
- Conflict and tension within the family
- Behavioral problems in children and teens
- Difficulty in school
- Chronic fatigue
- Inability to focus
- Difficulty sleeping
- Eating disorders
- Overcoming bad habits
- Extreme anxiousness
- Mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder
Our day-to-day challenges can present in the forms of irritation, severe anger, and everything in between. One of the best ways you can keep yourself from falling into a pit of negativity is to work with a mental health professional.
Psychiatrists treat a wide variety of mental and emotional issues, including mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, and substance abuse. As medical doctors, psychiatrists are able to look at both the mental and physical aspects of a mental health issue as a whole and offer treatment accordingly.
Psychiatrists can help diagnose and treat mental illnesses, but they can also help prevent them from worsening or arising in the first place. For example, they can teach clients how to mitigate symptoms and how to make changes in their lives to better address uncomfortable feelings and harmful behaviors.
