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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
