Liam always felt like he had to keep it together. He thought showing emotions was a sign of weakness so he never revealed his insecurities and outwardly maintained a calm demeanor. Friends and colleagues thought Liam was one of the most stable and well-adjusted people they knew. But on the inside, he was falling apart.
Liam’s world turned upside down when his relationship with his girlfriend abruptly ended. He started drinking to help tolerate the emotional turmoil roiling beneath the surface. He still managed to handle his responsibilities at work, but only barely.
Liam was starting to feel burnt out and didn’t know how much longer he could carry on this way. It just didn’t feel sustainable.
Fortunately, Liam turned to a mental health counselor to deal with his substance abuse, shaken confidence, and underlying emotions. Processing the impact of his lost relationship and reclaiming his life was a process that took time with the guidance of a skilled professional. But even within a few weeks, Liam was able to start incorporating new coping mechanisms and self-care tactics to tolerate the distress in a more healthy way. He was well on his way to a life of happiness and fulfillment.

Benefits of Seeing a Board-Certified Psychiatrist
While our entire team of mental health providers is equipped to guide you through life’s challenges, our board-certified psychiatrists are uniquely qualified to provide you with a medical perspective.
As medical doctors, psychiatrists can assess both your physical and mental symptoms and prescribe medications as needed. They diagnose and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral conditions and can administer treatment options like psychotherapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and other forms of talk therapy.
If you think you’d benefit from speaking with a psychiatrist, give us a call today to set up your first appointment.
