Workaholism Therapy – Counselors in Grand Rapids, Forest Hills

Workaholism is a compulsion to work that doesn’t disappear after leaving the office. It can cause physical problems, as well as stress and relationship conflict.

Thriveworks Grand Rapids workaholism counseling can help you understand this compulsion and figure out how to approach work in a healthier way.

Work Engagement versus Workaholism

Unlike the workaholic described above, some individuals simply work more than average because they find their work interesting, fulfilling, and engaging. These individuals are able to be emotionally present for family, friends, and coworkers. They enjoy getting to spend time with those close to them outside of work, and are able to do so without obsessively thinking about work. Again, counseling for workaholism in Grand Rapids becomes a reasonable step when working is interfering with your ability to engage with life outside of work.

Ramifications of Workaholism

It’s not just relationships and work productivity that can suffer when one becomes a workaholic. High stress can lead to high blood pressure, inability to sleep well, angry outbursts, and other health and social issues. Any one of these physical or mental/emotional signs can contribute toward a cycle of stress, health problems, and further overworking.

Relationships are one of the most important things that suffer when someone is overworking. Because they are likely home less, when they are with their family or friends, those friendships need to be nurtured. Relationships take effort from each person involved, and if one party begins to feel the other party doesn’t care as much, isn’t invested in the life of the first party, or simply isn’t present and engaged with the group, it really begins to wear on the relationship.

As we’ve all likely heard, those with healthy social lives even live longer (Rettner). Whether it be friends, family, or a romantic partner, having people in our lives who care about our health, happiness, and experiences is one of the best things we can do for health—and an unhealthy relationship with work is one of the fastest ways to jeopardize those relationships.

Seeking Help

As with many other situations, Grand Rapids counseling for workaholism isn’t so much about helping the patient work less as it is about helping the patient understand why they feel the need to preoccupy themselves with work in the first place. Our therapists are skilled at helping patients dig deeply into their experiences to determine what’s creating the need to work excessively. Just as important, we’ll help you work through that need to create a healthier relationship with work.

My son saw Denise for the first time recently and she was great. She seemed very well informed in every area and so willing to help my son with his anxiety. She actually spent time with us and seemed to care. I'm so glad we found her.

I was in need of a psychiatrist for chronic depression and anxiety. I came across thrive having only a 4 month wait instead 9 to 12 month wait with any other psychiatrist. This was wonderful news. I met Denise as my clinician. She is very empathetic very knowledgeable. She has helped me alot sine my first vist. She is very dedicated to her patients which I truly appreciate. I would highly recommend her for any psychiatric needs. I think she goes above and beyond her role. She is a caring individual. There should be more people like Denise. She needs to be recognized for her work.
