Think about a time you got hurt and bring that memory to the forefront. Your mind might automatically recall a moment from childhood when you fell on the playground; or a moment from this week when you stubbed your toe on the couch. In either case, it’s safe to assume that you took care of your injury, be it with a bandage, ice, or a few deep breaths. And as a result, there is no lasting pain or severe damage.
The point is that when we experience physical pain, we are quick to tend to the injury and do whatever it takes to heal. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about mental and emotional torment. Rather than putting in the time and effort to recover from internal pain (the way we do our physical pain), we often ignore or undervalue its importance. And we hope that it will go away or resolve itself.
The therapists, professional counselors, psychiatrists, and psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Milford are determined to help their clients work through their battles and find greater happiness or success. If you think that you could find value in working with one of our licensed providers, reach out today. We can get you scheduled for your first in-person session or online therapy appointment.
How Does Therapy Work?
If you’ve never worked with a therapist or another mental health provider before, you might be curious about what it entails. The truth is that every experience in therapy is different, as your therapist will design a treatment plan based on your unique needs. That said, therapy involves discussing the challenge at hand, identifying healthy techniques for managing or coping with the challenge, and taking steps to live a happier, healthier life.
Know that taking that step to work with a therapist will make a huge difference in your life. Many clients only wish they had gone to therapy sooner.
Should I Speak To a Licensed Psychiatrist?
Speaking with a licensed psychiatrist may be the right move if you’re dealing with a mood disorder, anxiety, depression, or another issue related to your mental health. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor, meaning they can prescribe medications as well as evaluate physical symptoms that relate to mental and emotional disorders.
Diagnosis and treatment can look different for different people. In some cases, talk therapy is necessary to help clients determine how their thoughts and feelings affect their condition, while also helping them learn more effective coping strategies. In other cases, medication may be necessary, and sometimes a combination of both is required.
If you’re dealing with a mental health challenge, our licensed psychiatrists are standing by to help you get back on track through secure, online therapy.
