The psychologist B. F. Skinner once stated, “A failure is not a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” It’s an empowering moment when you can start thinking of “mistakes” as learning experiences and you can start focusing on getting better instead of beating yourself up. But it’s a big hurdle to jump when you’re used to being your own worst enemy. What if you acted as your own best friend instead? What if you could meet with someone regularly who could help you make that emotional transformation?
This is just one example of the power therapy can have. An exceptional counselor, therapist, social worker, or psychiatrist can redirect maladaptive thoughts and behaviors so you can get back on track toward achieving your goals. The mental health providers at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Hoffman Estates can do just that. They are trained to listen closely and uncover the roots of problems, at a client’s pace and comfort levels. They are compassionate, insightful, knowledgeable providers recruited from the top 4% of applicants in the Chicago area. Whether you need support for your depression, your relationship issues, or just life in general, Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Hoffman Estates can help.
What’s the Use of Psychological Counseling?
Psychological counseling can help relieve emotional distress in the short-term or long-term. It does this by giving people insight into their own emotions and behaviors, and often empowering them and giving them the necessary resources to change for the better. Clients may also suffer from specific issues or mental health conditions like these below, which a Thriveworks counselor can address:
- Major depression disorder (MDD), mild depression, and other mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Anorexia or bulimia
- Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD)
- Empty nest syndrome

- Sexuality or gender identification issues
- Emotional regulation
