Counseling and Therapy Services in Franklin, MA—Working on Your Mental Health

Every day can be full of the unexpected—sometimes the surprises are good, and sometimes they are bad. Disappointments and setbacks are all normal parts of life, and so are joys and accomplishments. When it comes to friends, work, or family, life always keeps people on their toes. Navigating the highs and lows can be hard, even in a world where information is so easily accessed. A search engine cannot always provide the solution. Almost everyone, at some point in life, will need more support and guidance than they have access to.

Have you wondered, “Who can I trust in this situation? … What should I reasonably expect? … Do I have options? … or What is the actual problem here?” If you have, you are not alone, and many people have reached out to a mental health professional as they navigate tough relational dynamics, professional advancement, and/or a personal challenge.

The coaches, therapists, and counselors at Thriveworks Franklin help people who are asking big questions about life and seeking deeper answers. We want our clients to receive the mental health care they need along with the kindness and compassion they deserve as they work on life’s big challenges.

Why Work on Your Mental Health?

Whether you are facing relational tension, whether you are facing a personal obstacle, whether you need career advice, every single person needs a place where they feel safe to talk honestly and openly about their life. For many people, mental health professionals provide that safe space where they can regain perspective, clarify their goals, and create a path forward.

The counselors, coaches, and therapists at Thriveworks Franklin provide such a space for many clients. During their time, many clients cultivate their self-awareness, examining—with courage and honesty—their strengths and weaknesses. Our professionals want to empower their clients to receive the interventions they need to improve their well-being, take advantage of their strengths, and achieve their dreams.

How Does Counseling Work?

With a skilled therapist or counselor, many people set aside a particular time each week or month to focus upon their emotions and mind. A therapeutic relationship may start by clarifying a person’s hopes for the time and naming any particular challenges a person is facing. A therapist or counselor may inquire about a person’s family, career, physical health, relationships, mental health, and/or spirituality.

The professionals at Thriveworks Franklin then formulate a unique treatment plan that aims to meet each individual’s needs and symptoms:

  • If a client has experienced a difficult mental health problem, abuse, or trauma, our professionals may focus upon health and recovery. With kindness and expertise, our counselors may seek out the problem’s root and empower their clients with healthy coping skills and interventions.
  • If a client wants to achieve a professional or personal goal, our professionals may focus upon self-discovery. When people can identify their own weaknesses, strengths, and goals, then they can often identify practical steps to take toward their goal. They may need to learn new interpersonal skills or kick a bad habit, but setting smaller goals may allow them to achieve their bigger goals.
  • If a client is facing a secret addiction or another personal problem that is harming themselves and their loved ones, then our professionals may help them take back their self-control. They may need to identify hurt the addiction has caused, seek out accountability, and learn how to cope with life’s challenges.

What Kinds of Counseling Are Available?

People see a mental health professional for all kinds of reasons. Naming them all would be impossible. Some people begin therapy not knowing their goal, but throughout their time, the challenge and the goal become clear. Others know exactly why they need therapy. A handful of reasons people have come to Thriveworks Franklin include…

  • Life transitions
  • Anxiety
  • Marriage tensions
  • Childhood abuse
  • Insomnia
  • Eating disorders
  • Domestic violence
  • Codependency
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Psychiatric testing
  • Infidelity
  • Panic disorder
  • Addiction
  • ADHD
  • Life coaching
  • Cannabis abuse
  • Alcoholism
  • Career advancement
  • Anger management
  • Sexual identity issues
  • Divorce recovery

Does anything on this list sound familiar? Maybe it does…maybe it does not. Categorizing complex life challenges is difficult, and not all mental health difficulties fit into a label. Regardless of what you may be facing, Thriveworks Franklin may be able to help.

Opened a New World of Healing

★★★★★
I can't speak any more highly of Thriveworks. Mikkah has truly been such an important person in my life since ...Read more

I started coming to therapy. I was skeptical at first, knowing that "the first therapist you see may not be the right 'fit' for you," but I was lucky enough to have immediately clicked with Mikkah. It took a bit of time for me to really open up and start to dig deep in my own emotion, but Mikkah was so patient and made me feel so comfortable. She truly has helped me identify a lot of different things I was feeling, but couldn't understand why. I originally came to therapy for adult ADD, recommended by my PCP, but I used therapy as a healthy outlet to start talking about things I have experienced that has caused my mental clarity to fog. Mikkah has truly been such a savior in my life and I can't express my gratitude I have for her. She is extremely professional but makes me feel so comfortable talking about literally anything - almost like we've been best friends for years, even though I just met her a few short months ago. I am so happy with how my therapy is going and I always leave a session feeling better than how I went in. Thank you Thriveworks and thank you especially to Mikkah! You are incredible!!
