Therapy, Psychiatry and Counseling in McLean, VA (Elm Street)—Work with a Dedicated Mental Health Professional

Consider all of the areas of your life: your career, your personal goals, your relationships. Are there areas that you feel like you could improve? Do you feel like there are certain things that are bogging you down?

For example, maybe you feel overly stressed at work each time you get an email about a new assignment or you break down each time you and your significant other get into an argument. Maybe you just have a goal of purchasing a home in the next year but don’t know if you’re ready. Everyone has something in their life that they could work on.

If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.” – Dolly Parton

When Should I Pursue Mental Health Help?

Therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, and life coaches can help you address many different areas of your life—from relationship problems to significant life transitions. Whatever is going on in your life, a mental health professional will offer you the guidance and support you need to come up with an effective plan moving forward. Their goal is to help you improve your overall mental health and wellbeing.

The reasons why clients choose to work with us here at Thriveworks in McLean are vast. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • General unhappiness
  • Negative thoughts
  • Harmful symptoms of a mental illness
  • Lack of life satisfaction
  • Trouble in relationships
  • Familial concerns
  • Low self-esteem
  • Troubles parenting or behavioral problems in children

This list does not touch on all of the areas that one of our mental health professionals could provide you with assistance. You can talk to your counselor about anything that’s on your mind or causing you unhappiness. They’ll work with you on an individual level and create a treatment plan that is specifically catered to you and your needs. Take these two situations, for example.

  1. Lexi and Paul met and fell in love while pursuing their master’s degrees. They knew from the start that they were meant for each other. Once they both graduated from their master’s program, they faced a harsh reality. Lexi wanted to move to another state to earn her doctorate and Paul was ready to start his career… across the country. They are struggling to find common ground and figure out how they want to move forward. They don’t want to break up, but they also don’t know if they’ll survive long-distance.
  2. Kelly started in a career that she has worked her whole life for. Unfortunately, once she started doing her actual job, she realized quickly that this might not be the right career path for her. She feels like a fraud and doesn’t know what’s next for her or where to turn to. This career is the only thing she’s ever thought about and she doesn’t have a backup plan.

In both of these situations, working with a mental health professional could prove to be extremely beneficial. With a professional’s vast knowledge and expertise, Kelly, Lexi, and Paul can all receive the guidance they need to overcome these obstacles.

Speak With a Licensed Telepsychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling

Are you faced with a mental health issue such as depression, anxiety, or a personality disorder? Do you struggle with substance abuse, addictive behaviors, or an eating disorder? If so, it might be time to speak with a licensed psychiatrist.

Having completed medical school and gone on to a psychiatric residency for at least four years, psychiatrists are highly qualified to diagnose and treat a wide range of mental health concerns. If medication is required for your treatment plan, your psychiatrist can prescribe it and help you manage any potential side effects.

Psychiatrists can also conduct psychological tests and assess both your mental and physical symptoms. If you’re struggling with a mental health issue and aren’t sure where to turn, our telepsychiatry services in McLean, VA are a great place to start.
