Mental health services offer helpful, effective tools for virtually every life challenge. Think about it: With every obstacle, comes mental and emotional strain—obstacles like career stress, marital issues, family conflicts, major life changes, uncertainty about one’s future, diagnoses of both physical and mental illnesses. This list could go on forever. But the one thing these items have in common is that they can take a toll on our overall health and wellbeing, of which we could use a little help managing.
We all have tough days that are hard to endure and bounce back from. If you’re having one of those tough days (or weeks, or months, or even years!), you should consider talking to someone.
Counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, and psychologists specialize in having important conversations about what’s going on in someone’s life. Their skills, training, and experience allow them to offer valuable help, guidance, insight, and support.
If you are considering meeting with a mental health professional to navigate whatever you might be going through, contact Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lawrenceville. We partner with the best of the best mental health professionals in the area and offer a range of mental health services. We can provide you with individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, and more. To schedule your appointment and begin this journey, just give us a call.
What Might I Accomplish in Counseling?
Anyone and everyone are welcome in counseling. There might be certain individuals who could better benefit from counseling or those who need it more than others, but truly, we can all find value in it. For example, here are a few things you might accomplish with the help and support of a mental health counselor or coach:
- Learning to better cope with difficult emotions, like anger, sadness, jealousy, resentment
- Managing the harmful symptoms of a mental illness such as depression or anxiety
- Working through conflicts and fights with your significant other, family members, friends
- Coping with grief and loss after the death of a loved one or the loss of a job
- Coming to terms with a traumatic event or experience (firsthand or secondhand)
- Discovering what careers, hobbies, activities bring you happiness and fulfillment
This is a short list when you consider all of the goals that you can achieve in counseling and life coaching. If you’re hoping to accomplish one of the above, great. If you’re hoping to accomplish a goal that we haven’t yet mentioned, that’s okay too. Your counselor will listen intently to your needs and your goals; then, they’ll design a course for treatment that will help them fulfill your needs and help you achieve those goals.
The Benefits of Virtual Psychiatry
A licensed, virtual psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lawrenceville is a medical doctor that’s trained in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health issues. Many mental illnesses can impact both the body and the brain, and psychiatrists are uniquely qualified to treat clients from both a physical and mental perspective.
Psychiatrists can prescribe medication, recommend psychotherapy, and offer a number of other highly effective treatment options. A treatment plan may involve one or some combination of these treatment types. You may also receive self-care recommendations to alleviate symptoms or prevent symptoms from recurring in the future.
Mental health issues can be overwhelming but this doesn’t mean there’s no hope. Make an online appointment with Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lawrenceville today to discover the benefits of psychiatry counseling.
