Imagine this: Move-in day is finally here. After a grueling process of looking for a new rental, followed by a long wait, you couldn’t be more excited. Unfortunately, though, the weather forecast isn’t in your favor: it’s calling for thunderstorms all day. On top of that, the lockbox code that your property manager sent you doesn’t work. So you’re left in the rain, with a packed car, and no way to get inside.
This is an undeniably infuriating scenario you’re in. However, there are multiple ways you can handle it. For example, you can throw your hands up in frustration, leave, and yell at the property manager the second you get the chance; or, you can stay calm, call your property manager to get the code sorted out, and hope that the rain holds out. The latter option might be the harder option—but it delivers better results.

How Can a Peachtree Psychologist Help Me?
We just gave you a sneak peek at how a psychologist can help you in frustrating and stressful situations. Those aren’t the only instances though; a psychologist can help you with many day to day challenges from mild problems to more severe issues, including:
- Mental illness and other mental health challenges: If you’re experiencing symptoms of a mental illness (such as depression or anxiety), a Thriveworks Peachtree City psychologist can perform an assessment, offer a diagnosis, and put together a treatment plan that’s tailored to meet your unique needs. Or, if you’re feeling lonely, struggling with a low self-esteem, or experiencing other difficult emotions, one of our psychologists can step in and make a difference. They can help you better understand why you’re feeling the way that you do and put a plan in place for feeling better!
- Relationship issues, such as jealousy or infidelity: Our relationships with others have a tremendous impact on every area of our life, including our mental health. If your relationship with your spouse or significant other is on the decline, a Thriveworks Peachtree City psychologist can help you get it back on track. They can help you work through specific relationship issues like infidelity, jealousy, trust issues, financial insecurity, and more.
- Major life transitions: Many of us find comfort in familiarity, in routine—this means that major life transitions can prove difficult and cause harm to our mental health. Major life transitions include big moves, job changes, school changes, etc. If you’re currently going through a major life change, a psychologist can help you work through your feelings and transition well, from making new friends to adjusting at your new workplace.
The list above represents just a few common problems that we as humans might run into in our lifetimes. It does not, by any mean, cover every potential problem that we can work through with a psychologist. Psychologists help their clients with a wide array of challenges, doing their best to adjust for each individual’s unique needs and goals.
