Consider: You were always a fan of love stories—especially fairytales that feature Prince Charming. But then, your parents divorced during your freshman year of college. Their decision to split blindsided you, as you always idolized their relationship and hoped to model your own after it someday. In the years that follow, you experience difficult emotions related to your parents’ divorce. You struggle with a fear of commitment and always look the other way when someone shows interest in you. You wish that you could open up and learn to love someone the way that your parents used to—but now you couldn’t imagine loving, as that leaves you vulnerable to losing.
“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” –David Richo

How Can a Psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling Framingham Help Me?
Your specific experience will depend on what you’re struggling with and what you hope to work on with your psychologist. For example, here are a few specific problems our psychologists help their clients with:
- Grieving a tough loss: If you’ve lost a loved one, every area of your life has likely been forever changed. You’re forced to process difficult feelings and adjust your life accordingly. This is a tremendous challenge, and it can prove more difficult for some than others. If you’ve lost a loved one and you’re struggling to accept this loss or move forward with your life, a psychologist can support and guide you through the grief process.
- Overcoming issues in your relationship: We discussed a fear of commitment earlier, but that isn’t the only relationship issue you might encounter. There are many others, including infidelity, emotional (or physical) abuse, jealousy, mistrust, and so on. Whatever it may be, a psychologist can help you work through it and even improve your relationship.
- Managing mental illness: There are many mental illnesses out there, two of the most common being depression and anxiety. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, or experiencing symptoms of another mental illness, a psychologist can offer their expertise to help you manage these symptoms and the illness as a whole.
