Life Coaching, Therapy, and Mental Health Services in Pasadena, CA

Many people feel stuck in a rut and think there should be more to life than this, shouldn’t there? At times, life’s possibilities seem endless and anything can happen. Maybe this is exciting and empowering: set your goals and achieve your dreams. Yet, for many, this can feel overwhelming and scary: if anything can happen, life is out of control and unpredictable. Life in a world of endless possibilities can be an exhilarating or a debilitating experience–and many shades in between these two extremes.

Many people have been able to capitalize on the exhilarating aspects of life and manage the debilitating experiences through mental health therapy.

The goal of mental health services, including counseling and coaching, is to help people thrive, and at Thriveworks Pasadena, CA, we have taken that goal as our name. Our professionals are equipped to help their clients set their goals and achieve their dreams–to thrive.

Why Mental Health Therapy?

People often need an objective, professional perspective to help them see what has gone wrong and how to make it right. As easy as it is to blame others, people’s greatest obstacle to their own joy and potential is themselves. No doubt, external circumstances and relationships matter and can greatly affect people. However, self-imposed restrictions are usually what hold people back, but people who are empowered to make realistic changes can find a way to thrive.

Deciding to change is not easy, and knowing what changes to make can be even harder. We all need help. Deciding to seek help might be the first change people need to make. Unfortunately, mental health therapy can have a social stigma. Some label asking for help as weak or embarrassing, but at Thriveworks, Pasadena, CA, we thinking asking for help is courageous and strong.

Naming problems honestly and living in reality–even a difficult reality–is not an easy task. Moving forward takes determination, fortitude, and usually a little bit of help. Moving forward and making changes means going against your natural desire for comfort and stability.

Consider the following situations:

  • A parent has passed away without warning and the grief is making it difficult to focus at work and connect with your family.
  • You have a good job, but you want to achieve more and move up the corporate ladder.
  • Your children are having trouble adjusting after a move. You want to support them as they adjust but aren’t sure how.
  • What started out as a stress reliever has now grown into an addiction.
  • You and your life partner might get married, but you both want to meet with an experienced professional before making any decisions.

If you were experiencing one of these realities, wouldn’t help from a caring professional be comforting? Wouldn’t you want guidance from someone who has walked that road with others?

There are many reasons people choose to pursue life coaching or mental health therapy. Some of those reasons include…

  • Anxiety
  • Career advancement
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Suspected abuse of a child
  • Child therapy
  • Sexual identity
  • Job loss
  • Anger management
  • Addiction
  • Executive coaching
  • Divorce
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Psychiatric testing
  • Family therapy

People who have never seen a therapist or life coach may feel like scheduling that first appointment is a leap into an unknown world. We understand. It’s why we work to make scheduling your first session as inviting and trouble-free as possible. Call us when it’s convenient for you: Wednesday night, Sunday morning, Monday afternoon. We will answer and schedule your appointment. Afraid you will have to wait a few weeks for an appointment? We understand that too. We don’t keep a waitlist, but instead, we are often able to schedule an appointment within 24-hours of your call.

What can you expect from counseling or coaching at Thriveworks Pasadena, CA? Many of our clients have …

  • Set and achieved professional or personal dreams.
  • Overcome a challenging life issue.
  • Pursued healthier relationships.
