Consider for a moment which healthcare professionals support your overall well-being. If you are like many people, you may see a primary care physician who can offer you preventative care and whom you see when you are ill. Many people also see a specialist—possibly a cardiologist, an endocrinologist, or an oncologist—someone who can give their body the particular care it needs. Others regularly work with a nutritionist or a trainer to ensure their body is healthy and strong.
In recent decades, more and more people are including mental health professionals among the professionals who help them live an overall healthy life. More and more people are prioritizing their mental health. In doing so, they are experiencing the benefits that taking care of their minds and emotions can bring to their whole life.
All too often, there is more to the story than the smiling face people put on when they walk out the door each morning. Mental health care is focused on peeling back the layers, allowing people to be themselves with both the good and the bad. When people have a safe place to be themselves—without judgment and without fear—they are often able to make positive adjustments in their lives. For many people, that safe place is therapy, counseling, or psychiatry.
The professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Harrisonburg love seeing their clients’ daily lives improve. We have worked with many clients who have experienced difficult diagnoses, relational tension, professional frustrations, and more. Through therapy and psychiatry at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Harrisonburg, many have found the key they needed to increase their overall well-being.
Is Psychiatry Right for Me?
Many individuals suffer from mental health issues but aren’t sure if their symptoms are severe enough to visit a psychiatrist. However, psychiatrists help individuals with mental and emotional disorders of all kinds and all levels of severity. This includes depression, anxiety, personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and others.
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental and emotional disorders. The perspective they offer can be extremely helpful for disorders with a strong physical component.
Medications may be prescribed if it is considered helpful for your condition. A psychiatrist may also suggest talk therapy to help you overcome your mental health concerns.
