Gracie recently quit talking to her father, with whom she has had a rocky relationship with for some time. Although she loves her dad, he was physically abusive when she was a girl and has never taken responsibility for his actions. He’s continued to be critical, negative, and unwilling to open up emotionally. After her last attempt to talk with him about how his behavior harmed her, Gracie realized that she may be better off without him in her life. Still, the decision hasn’t been easy, and she’s wracked with guilt and confusion: Did she make the right choice?
To think through this major life change, Gracie wants to talk to a psychologist, someone she hopes will be able to help her understand why she and her father are unable to get along. Though she wants him in her life, she hopes that a psychologist’s guidance and support will help her know what to do more with her father’s behavior. It may be some time before she understands her family life with more clarity, but she knows that attending counseling sessions is the first step.
Like Gracie, you might also be looking to confide in a psychologist for assistance with your mental health needs. At Thriveworks in Gainesville, FL we have psychologists who are ready to partner with you, helping you prioritize your emotional wellbeing and offering you personalized coping strategies.
How Can a Psychologist Assist Me?
Psychologists are highly trained mental health professionals; they often hold advanced degrees that make them expert providers and empathizers. Though everyone’s mental health needs can vary, our team of psychologists can help a wide array of people with situations or conditions such as:
- Major life transitions such as marriage, divorce, death, or financial issues
- Anger management
- Family or relationship problems
- Grief and loss
- And many other problems
Psychologists can help with a lot—but it’s important to talk candidly with them so that they can fully understand your situation and how they can better assist you. When you decide to open up to a Thriveworks counselor in Gainesville, FL you can trust that your needs are being met by the industry’s best. We only hire the top 4% of applicants; it’s just another way that we go above and beyond to ensure that our clients are prioritized.
Should I Talk with a Psychologist Virtually?
Many of our psychologists are available virtually through our online therapy and counseling services. Connect with your psychologist from home, the office, or while traveling to make the most out of your sessions, regardless of your schedule. With virtual therapy and counseling from Thriveworks, it’s easier than ever to put your mental health needs first.
