Night after night, Mindy found herself waiting for her roommates to go to bed so she could be alone in the kitchen. She wanted to binge on junk food without anyone knowing. She felt ashamed after these binges, but she didn’t know how to stop. She had a feeling the emotional eating was related to a recent, painful breakup with her boyfriend. But then again, her eating issues might date back to when she was a kid and her mom would criticize her body.
Mindy knew that she needed help figuring out the origins of the bingeing. She could really use some guidance on how to feel in control of her life again. So she decided to schedule an appointment with a mental health professional at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Minneapolis.

Your Thriveworks provider will work with you to address these challenges and improve your well-being. To get started, just call our office or book your appointment online.

Be Proactive About Taking Care of Your Mental Health
Jake has a history of major depressive episodes, but he’s felt remarkably good for the past three years. Then this week, all at once, he got laid off from his job, his dog died, and he sprained his ankle playing soccer, which made him feel physically helpless. He felt some of the signs of his depression coming back, and he wanted to be proactive about these feelings—before they got worse and hindered him from achieving his goals. Scheduling an appointment with a mental health professional can be preventative, too!
