Pittsburgh Loneliness and Social Isolation Counseling

Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


You might be surprised to know just how many people struggle with loneliness, social isolation, or both. The main difference is this: social isolation means being physically separated from people, while a person can feel lonely whether they’re alone or around people. It simply means they don’t feel connected to the people in their lives. We have some options to help you find your way out of this situation:

1. Reach out to a friend or loved one

You might be surprised if you knew how many people you know have dealt with exactly what you’re dealing with. Sometimes just reaching out and sharing your story can be enough to get you out of your funk, and your friend or loved one may surprise you with some sage advice from their own experience.

2. Give meditation a shot

One of the reasons people who feel lonely have a hard time shaking it off is because they hyper-focus on themselves and their thoughts. Everyone feels sad and alone sometimes, but when all you can think about is how alone you are, it’s difficult to do anything about it. Mediating can quiet the mind long enough for you to get a better perspective on what to do next.

3. Let animals work their magic

Did you know that spending time with animals can help cure loneliness? Just talking a dog for a walk, cuddling with a cat, or petting your neighbor’s puppy can reduce blood pressure and help you feel more connected with the world.

4. Consider working with a loneliness counselor

You don’t have to go through this on your own. You don’t have to try a dozen different methods to find the answer for your unique situation. Contact Thriveworks Pittsburgh loneliness counseling and let us help you through the process. A counselor will work directly with you to help you find the answers you’re seeking.
