Jennifer has always been a relatively healthy and happy person. She tries to eat good foods, exercises often, and checks in with her doctor regularly. She has supportive friends and family and a good job.
But lately, Jennifer has been feeling down. She was passed over for a big promotion that she felt she deserved. Normally she’s able to shrug off these situations, but this time is different. She’s been having trouble concentrating at work, is feeling a bit hopeless about her future, and has been drinking more alcohol than she normally does. Her husband is worried about her and suggests she see a therapist.
Have you ever felt like Jennifer –– experiencing a difficult time in your life or facing symptoms of a potential mental illness? Therapists and counselors specialize in helping people improve their mental health and live happier, more fulfilled lives. They can help you whether you’re living with a mental or emotional disorder, going through a major life transition, or if you simply want advice on how to make a change.
We know that finding a professional counselor can be difficult. You might call around to different offices, leave voicemails, and sit on a waitlist. At Thriveworks Counseling in Phoenix, AZ (Shay Park) we do things differently. We have in-person and remote appointments available with our psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and counselors seven days a week. Call our office today (or use our booking widget) and you could even be seen within the next 48 hours.
Benefits of Mental Health Care
Many people think that therapy is only for people with a severe mental health condition. In reality, while professional support can be valuable for anyone with a severe mental illness, it can also be beneficial if you’re going through a difficult period in your life or just want to talk to someone.
Therapy or counseling can help you:
- Learn ways to reduce and manage stress
- Develop helpful communication skills
- Manage and reduce mental health symptoms
- Learn coping strategies for anxiety, depression, or other conditions
- Understand how to listen to yourself and others
- Improve your self-image and self-worth
No matter what you’re dealing with, professional counseling can teach you valuable skills and help you improve your mental health. If you think that a counselor or therapist may be right for you, give us a call today at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Phoenix.
Can I Work With an Online Psychiatrist?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating mental illness. Their medical training helps them rule out any physical causes of mental health conditions ranging from mild and temporary to severe and chronic.
One major difference between a psychiatrist and other mental health professionals is that a psychiatrist can prescribe medication. Psychiatrists have medical degrees and are trained in medication management. Medication can help reduce symptoms of a mental disorder and make it easier to manage. Not every treatment plan will include medication but it is a great option for some people.
If psychiatric treatment sounds right for you, consider scheduling an online psychiatry appointment with one of our providers at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Phoenix.
