Framingham Counseling and Psychiatry—Mental Health Services in Massachusetts

How Can Mental Health Services Help Me?

There are many mental health challenges that individuals face on a daily basis. These include depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses; relationship trouble like jealousy or infidelity; adapting well during major life transitions, and more. Fortunately, at Thriveworks Framingham, we have counselors, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals that are experienced in many different areas of mental health care. These include:

Your counselor will first work to understand your needs and then tailor counseling, therapy, or life coaching to best help your unique situation. We can help you with a wide range of mental health issues. Just give us a call.

What Can I Expect from Counseling, Therapy, and Life Coaching?

As we just mentioned, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks provide individualized help. This means that no two experiences in counseling, therapy, or counseling are the same. Instead, your provider will learn what you want and need out of the mental health service and then customize each session to help you progress toward a happier, healthier life.

Life coaching differs from counseling and therapy in that its purpose is to empower individuals and assist them in reaching their goals. To better understand the difference between counseling, therapy, and life coaching, let’s take a look at who might seek counseling or therapy and who might seek life coaching. The following individuals could find help in counseling or therapy:

  • A couple who can’t seem to agree on anything lately
  • An individual who feels depressed or anxious
  • A child who is struggling to make friends at a new school
  • Someone who is experiencing PTSD symptoms after a traumatic event

In contrast, the following individuals could benefit from working with a life coach:

  • An individual who wants to find new meaning out of life
  • Someone who has trouble keeping himself accountable for his goals
  • An individual who is looking for encouragement and motivation
  • Someone who isn’t sure how to go about setting and reaching new goals

How a Psychiatrist Can Support You

When you have an injury or an illness, you go to the doctor. The same is true for mental health issues; psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the treatment of mental illnesses, behavioral problems, and emotional disorders.

Thanks to their medical training and years of psychiatry residency, psychiatrists are well-equipped to gauge the severity of your symptoms, understand their health implications, and determine the best treatment plan for you.

Psychiatrists can prescribe medications, teach you coping skills, and guide you through talk therapy. If you’re ready to see what a Thriveworks psychiatrist can do for you, schedule a virtual appointment with us today.
