Palo Alto Counseling — Mental Health Services Offered in CA

Your mental health plays a part in almost every aspect of your daily life. It affects so much more than just your mind and can control how you feel, think, and act at any given time. Your relationships, emotions, work-life balance, and overall wellbeing are all impacted by how you feel at any given time.

Taking care of your mental health is very important, but it isn’t always easy to do. Busy schedules, demanding jobs, and complicated family issues can make it challenging to stay on top of your mental health. All of this can be complicated by mental health issues like depression, anxiety, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Fortunately, support is available for people wanting to focus on their mental health. The team of therapists, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists at Thriveworks are here to help you tackle your mental health issues and help you maintain better mental health.

If you’re interested in finding out how our mental health professionals can help you thrive, you can schedule your first appointment online or by calling our friendly scheduling team at Thriveworks Counseling in Palo Alto, CA. They can answer your questions and help you get started.

Why Should I Pursue Therapy or Counseling?

Poor mental health can negatively impact your performance at work, grades at school, relationships, and even your ability to perform basic daily tasks. If you’re struggling with your mental health, you may also experience mood swings or a variety of other psychological or physical symptoms.

Even if you’re not sure what is causing you to feel “off,” a mental health professional can help you understand what’s wrong. Therapy or counseling can help you identify and manage the problems causing issues with your mental health. Whether you’re experiencing mild anxiety or struggling to manage a chronic mental illness, therapy or counseling can give you the tools to cope with your symptoms and overcome difficult issues.

Working with a mental health professional is more than a short-term solution for acute mental health issues. It can also be a valuable tool that helps you achieve better mental health in the long term. Talk therapy, prescribed medications, lifestyle adjustments, and other therapeutic techniques can help resolve your mental health issues and teach you how to maintain a healthy mentality.

If you’re thinking about pursuing therapy or counseling in Palo Alto, CA, the team of mental health professionals at Thriveworks would love to meet you and help you work through the challenges you’re facing. Call our office today to get started.
