Making the decision to talk over your life’s challenges with a licensed therapist or psychiatrist can be overwhelming. Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Philadelphia on JFK Blvd makes it easier. We offer fully licensed mental health services from dedicated counselors, psychotherapists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists, and psychologists who are ready to provide the expert care you need.
Why Seek Therapy or Counseling?
In order to live a balanced, fulfilling life, the whole of a person must be considered. Physical wellness is incredibly important (and is, in fact, integral to mental wellbeing), but just like we monitor our physical health by getting plenty of sleep, exercising, maintaining a nutrition-based diet and going to the doctor, our mental health is greatly improved when given the attention it deserves. Without balance, without a realistic perspective, even simple tasks can become overwhelming.
Counseling isn’t only for times of extreme emotional duress or for people suffering from long-term psychological disorders. Even happy, successful people benefit from honest, objective conversations they have with their therapists and coaches. There is always room for improvement and personal growth in our lives.
Also, even the most well adjusted struggle with challenging life issues from time to time:
- Perhaps you’ve recently lost a close loved one and need someone to talk to
- You might be stuck ruminating over past missteps and regrets, and your work productivity or current relationships could be paying the price
- Your child might be having a difficult time adjusting to a new school
- You and your significant other might be considering marriage
- Perhaps you are unhappy with your job and don’t know how to improve your situation
There’s no limit to the number of reasons why people seek counseling, therapy, or life coaching. The important thing is that you actually do so. Tragedy isn’t experiencing severe depression, or anxiety, or missing that promotion. Tragedy is going through these things alone and not reaching out for readily available (and effective) care.
Talk to an Experienced Thriveworks Psychiatrist
Psychiatry appointments can offer many benefits to those struggling with mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders.
As licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists can look at the big picture when making diagnoses and coming up with treatment plans. They can evaluate your physical symptoms and guide you through psychological tests to gauge the severity of your situation and the right course of action.
Psychiatrists can prescribe medication and provide many forms of talk therapy including psychotherapy, exposure therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Psychiatrists are also concerned with preventing mental illness. To that end, they can offer self-care recommendations, including changes to your diet, sleep, and exercise habits.
