Olivia can no longer look at herself in the mirror. Literally. She feels so insecure about the way she looks that she turns away whenever she sees her reflection. Olivia has always been a little insecure about her looks, but it’s never been this bad before. She finds herself comparing her face and body to the hundreds of wealthy influencers she follows on social media. She feels like she’ll never be pretty enough or fit enough to achieve her goals in life.
Olivia feels like she’s losing control. She can’t seem to stay off social media, even though scrolling for hours always makes her feel worse about herself. She has started drinking too much, alone, as a coping mechanism for her insecurity. She knows these behaviors are unhealthy, even maladaptive, but she’s embarrassed to open up to her friends about her private feelings and habits, and she doesn’t know where else to turn.
But Olivia isn’t helpless. She can take control of the situation by scheduling a personal counseling appointment with a caring, supportive, top-rated mental health provider at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lakewood. The counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists at Thriveworks have the expertise to help clients identify roadblocks in their lives. They can provide practical resources to help tackle the obstacles together. They are trained to listen closely and provide valuable insights into all kinds of mental health puzzles.

When Is It Time to Seek Counseling?
It’s time to seek counseling when you feel that you’re not functioning as well as you should in your life. Maybe you feel like something is missing.

Individual, family, couples, or marriage counseling can help.
