Josh spends most of his spare time painting—he has a small studio in his garage that he sets up on the weekends. While he enjoys getting to do what he loves, Josh doesn’t get a lot of chances to relax; his work and family life keep him occupied most days of the week. Josh doesn’t want to complain, but he feels as though he’s overwhelmed by his daily obligation. He would talk to his wife or friends about the negative thoughts he’s holding on the inside, but he doesn’t want to burden them with his problems. Besides, Josh isn’t sure if they’d know how to help.
Regardless, his building anxiety and panic have reached a tipping point; Josh knows that he needs to talk with a mental health professional for assistance. By opening up to a provider, Josh hopes that he’ll be able to explore new ways to manage his anxiety and negative thoughts. Though he knows it could take more than one session for him to reclaim his mental health, Josh is ready to take his next steps through therapy or counseling.
Like Josh, you may also be hoping to connect with a mental health professional. At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Huntington Beach, our therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists can help you to balance your emotions and contend with the stress of your day-to-day life. Call our office to schedule your first session, and to discover the difference that mental health care at Thriveworks can make.
Should I Talk to a Mental Health Professional?
Anyone can benefit from talking to one of our providers, regardless of their age or background. That’s because talking to a mental health professional is about constantly improving on the areas that you and your provider identify, as a team. Instead of facing what’s troubling you by yourself, a mental health professional at Thriveworks can help you more easily achieve your mental health goals.
- Having difficulty coping with and regulating work or family-related stress
- Difficulty regulating emotions like anger or grief
- Feeling sad or hopeless for an extended period of time
- Experiencing issues in their marriage or relationship
- Noticing that anxiety and racing thoughts are upsetting their daily life
Sharing your experience is an integral part of receiving therapy or psychiatric treatment, and it’s a chance to vent your frustrations, communicate your hopes, and establish goals with your provider. Talking openly and candidly with your provider is the best way to ensure you can make the changes you need to start enjoying better mental health.
How Does Online Psychiatry Work?
For some, connecting with a psychiatrist is highly beneficial. And with Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Huntington Beach, our psychiatric program is completely virtual. Online psychiatry sessions are an effective way to get quality mental health care without throwing off your hectic schedule. We offer the ability to connect with your provider anywhere—as long as you have reliable internet and a private space to talk, you’re good to go.
Psychiatrists are a type of mental health professional that specializes in treating mental health disorders and are often the go-to choice for treating emotional and behavioral disorders like depression and ADHD. In addition to these mental health conditions, a psychiatrist can assist you with other disorders or concerns, including:
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Postpartum depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse and addiction
If your area of concern isn’t listed, that’s okay. You can schedule a session with one of our psychiatrists to discuss your situation and what your next steps will be. As medical doctors that are often licensed therapists, a psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Huntington Beach can offer you next-level mental health care. And with the assistance of a prescription, the discomfort of your mental health challenges may become easier to manage.
