Imagine this: After a year of loss and defeat, you feel like you finally have your dominoes in a row. In the last few months, you’ve managed to graduate from college and score your first full-time job out of school. And your boyfriend has been there for you every step of the way. You look forward to celebrating all of your accomplishments with him… but the night takes a turn. He practically explodes with emotions that he’s been burying deep inside of him. You feel startled and confused—but you get the gist. He wants to focus on where his life is headed, which doesn’t include you or your relationship.
Life is a series of ups and downs. One moment we might be celebrating a win and the next we might be grieving a loss, as illustrated in the example above. Fortunately, there are professionals out there who dedicate their lives to accompanying people through these ups and downs. If you are struggling with major life changes, grief and loss, or other tough challenges, a psychologist can help. It’s their job and their mission.
“Probably the biggest insight is that happiness is not just a place, but also a process. Happiness is an ongoing process of fresh challenges, and it takes the right attitudes and activities to continue to be happy.” –Ed Diener

What Can a Psychologist Do for Me?
Psychologists have a unique ability to help people in many areas of life. In summary, they can help you improve or maintain your mental health or find greater success and happiness in both your personal and professional life. This might mean having some difficult conversations, replacing bad habits with good habits, learning new techniques that support better mental health, and so on. Your experience will all depend on what you want and what you need out of your time with your psychologist.
Let’s delve into a few of the duties we just mentioned. Again, depending on your specific needs, a psychologist can help you to…
- Improve or maintain your mental health and wellbeing: There are a lot of factors that contribute to the state of your mental health. If you are suffering mentally or emotionally, your psychologist can help you identify what’s hurting you, why, and how you can get past it. For example, you might be suffering due to a breakup, a mental illness, a fight with a loved one, the death of a friend or family member, and so on. Whatever it is, your Thriveworks Manassas Psychologist is here for you to talk openly with. They will provide you with a safe space and help you work through the given problem(s).
- Find greater happiness or success in your personal or professional life: The second main functionality of a psychologist is to help you achieve more. Goal-setting and succeeding are both important to our wellbeing. If you feel stuck, unfulfilled, unhappy, or unmotivated (either personally or professionally), a psychologist can help you pinpoint what your life is lacking and what will help you find greater happiness or success. This is just as important as the latter, and the psychologists at Thriveworks Manassas are happy to serve this purpose.
If you’re suffering or you feel like your life is lacking, consider working with a Prince William County Psychologist at Thriveworks Manassas. They’re excited for the opportunity to help!
