“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
– Christopher Reeve

The providers at Thriveworks in McDonough, GA have the skills, the experience, and the dedication to help you overcome the obstacles in your life. They’ve seen firsthand just how beneficial mental health care is and they’re eager for you to experience these benefits yourself. They know they can make a difference in your life through in-person counseling or online therapy—all you have to do is let them in.

Overcoming Life’s Obstacles with a Mental Health Professional

A mental health professional’s primary job is to assist his or her clients in overcoming the challenge(s) they face and living an overall healthier, happier life. These challenges vary among us, but there are some common issues that therapists and counselors address:

  • Harmful thoughts/feelings
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship problems
  • Adjusting to major life transitions

These are just a few issues therapists and counselors help their clients work through. In any regard, your provider at Thriveworks in McDonough, GA can help you find health, happiness, and healing. Let’s take a closer look at just how our providers can help you. Envision the following:

  1. You and your spouse have had a rough few months. It seems like every day you’re getting into a new explosive fight—about where to go for dinner tonight, whose turn it is to take out the trash and do the dishes, when to put the kids to bed, and on and on. Now, instead of repeating this harmful cycle, or allowing it to have irreversible effects on your marriage, meet with a marriage therapist. They can help you address any suppressed feelings that might be leading to these arguments, learn healthier communication strategies, and more.
  2. You’ve lived in the same little town your entire life—that is, until now. You finally decided it was time for a new adventure. You’ve been excited ever since you had this revelation, but you’re also feeling extremely nervous and anxious about this whole move. The doubts start to creep in: What if I hate it in this new city? What if I don’t make any friends? What if I can’t find a job? Instead of allowing these doubts to rule your life, meet with a counselor or therapist and correct your negative thoughts. They will help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and adopt more positive ones that will make for a much healthier, happier you.
  3. Your family and friends have always known you to be the happy-go-lucky one; the one that’s always cracking jokes and lifting everyone else’s spirits. Recently, though, you haven’t been cracking many jokes. Lifting everyone else’s spirits? You can’t even smile yourself; you’re so unhappy. You don’t know why you’re experiencing these significant changes, but you don’t like it. And people are starting to take notice. They’re starting to worry. Instead of sitting idly by, worrying about these changes, see a therapist. They can help you explore these new feelings, understand the cause of these changes, and help you return to the happy person you miss.

What Is the Difference Between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist?

At Thriveworks in McDonough, GA, we offer a full suite of licensed mental health professionals. Psychiatrists (MDs) are medical doctors who can prescribe medication to treat mental health conditions like depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Psychologists, mental health counselors, and social workers, on the other hand, cannot manage medication. They use a variety of psychotherapy approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help clients achieve their goals.

Should have done this sooner

I am amazed at how much talking with my therapist has helped my mental health. In a time when I am struggling with situations out of my control, talking with DeEveria Lacy has helped me focus on the positive and realize that not all changes are negative. Dee has been an amazing help and comfort, and I am thankful to have found a therapist like her.

Helpful

★★★★★
I was apprehensive at first, as I was having strong physical anxiety symptoms that I wanted to disappear fast. But Sandra taught me to make care of my mind and self care first to have lasting results. I have skills that I still use when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed. She helped me become a better me.

Dee at Thriveworks

★★★★★
In going to therapy I thought it was going to always be somber, sad, and I was going to always feel like the Bad guy I have enjoyed my sessions with Dee because she finds the good in every situation explained. She makes me feel as if I’ve known her for years. She makes me accountable to counter active behavior. She’s opened my eyes to different ways of thinking about emotional intelligence and accountability. The work isn’t done. But thanks for putting me on the right path.

The location is very convenient for me and she is willing to work around my schedule.

Myngnon Walton / Play Therapy

★★★★★
I’ve been taking my son to play therapy with Miss Mimi for a little over a year and I’ve noticed a tremendous difference in him being able to express his feelings and emotions after their sessions. She is observant, personable/relatable, genuine, and knowledgeable. My son will specifically ask to visit her if there is a large lapse in time from his last therapy session. I’d definitely recommend Miss Myngnon Walton.

I just want to give a review of Ms. Jaquita Shorts. My husband and I met with her for several months between May and September for family/marriage counseling. Ms. Shorts gave us homework assignments and in session assignments that made counseling more comfortable. She was also great at drilling down on issues to discover root issues. I definitely suggest giving her a try!
