Have you seen the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit? It features a young, up and coming female chess player named Elizabeth. After being put in an orphanage due to the passing of her mother, she learns how to play chess from the school’s janitor. Quickly, she picks up the game and swiftly defeats most people in her path.
However, with all of Elizabeth’s past trauma and challenges, she battles addiction and alcoholism. Throughout the show, you watch Elizabeth get pulled back and forth with her internal battles as she struggles to maintain her purpose in life.
Although most people can’t relate to Elizabeth in terms of being professional chess players, they can relate to her on a humanistic level. Everyone faces challenges and hardships throughout their lives that take a lot of time and effort to overcome. When faced with these adversities, it’s essential to remain strong, lean on your support systems, and get mental health help.

What Do I Need to Know About Online Counseling?
Believe it or not, online counseling has been around for decades. Today, online counseling is a widely popular therapy option for people of all different backgrounds. Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Monroe, we offer our clients two main forms of online counseling, which are:
- Telephone Counseling: As the name implies, telephone counseling allows you to talk to your counselor or therapist via phone call. At the time of your appointment, your provider will give you a call and all you have to do is answer!
- Video chat counseling: For this counseling service, you’ll talk to your provider via video chat. Well before your scheduled appointment time, your provider will send you a link to a secure video chat room which you will click at the time of your session. Just make sure you have a secure, reliable internet connection.
Both options are easy and effective. If you’re on the fence about which option to go with, we recommend that you try both to see what feels the best for you. Either way, your online therapist will work with you on whichever platform that best suits your needs.
