If you ask Phoebe, the relationship that she shares with her best friend, Morgan has been less than stellar for some time. Even though they’ve always loved spending time with each other and have been close friends for over 10 years, they’ve been taking some time apart. Phoebe’s done her best to reach out and connect with Morgan when she has time, but too often it feels like Morgan simply doesn’t respond, and when she does, it’s days later.
Phoebe doesn’t want to confront her friend about the issues that are upsetting her, but at the same time, Morgan’s behavior is starting to cause their connection to deteriorate. After having reached out to Morgan about being her maid of honor for her wedding, it’s been almost two weeks since and Phoebe hasn’t heard anything. At this point, Phoebe feels like she and her friend need to prioritize their connection; after doing some digging online, Phoebe is debating signing both of them up for counseling with a psychologist.
Phoebe isn’t alone in wondering whether connecting with a psychologist could be beneficial. At Thriveworks in Lawton, OK we’d like to answer that question with a resounding “yes”. We believe that anyone, regardless of age or background, can benefit from talking with a mental health professional. If you’re interested in discovering the ways that counseling or therapy can improve your mental health.
What Are the Benefits of Talking with a Psychologist?
Everyone’s mental health needs will vary. Thankfully, psychologists are licensed providers, who can diagnose and treat a wide array of different mental health conditions. Psychologists help everyday people with mental health conditions and concerns, like:
- Difficulty processing a divorce or breakup
- Self-esteem issues
- Relationship problems
- Child or teen behavioral issues
- The loss of a friend or family member
- Financial or work-related stress
These are a few of the many different issues that psychologists can assist with, so don’t panic if you don’t see anything that you’re currently experiencing listed above. Your situation and perspective are unique, and that’s exactly why opening up to a psychologist is so useful. By doing so, you provide them with the feedback they need to help you implement coping strategies and other helpful ways to improve your emotional wellbeing.
