Psychiatry, Therapists, Counselors in Pittsburgh, PA – Fourth Avenue

Over the years, there has been a slight decrease in the negative stigmas surrounding mental health. With more and more celebrities, influencers, and even professional sports players opening up about the battles they have with mental health, it’s encouraging the public to do the same. Howie Mandel, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Aly Raisman, Michael Phelps, Tia Mowry—just to name a few. People are opening up and coming forward with their struggles instead of hiding them away in lieu of being “perfect.”


The truth is, we all struggle mentally. Whether it’s because of stress at work, rivaling children, family members who can’t get along, social anxiety, or general unhappiness, we’re all being affected by something. So, what do you do if you need extra support and guidance to overcome these internal battles? You reach out to a trusted counselor, therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or coach. These mental health experts have extensive training and experience to help you cope with, manage, and even overcome the battles in your life.


“You have to remember that the hard days are what make you stronger. The bad days make you realize what a good day is. If you never had any bad days, you would never have that sense of accomplishment.” – Aly Raisman


Talking to a trusted therapist or counselor should be seen as a safe haven—a place where you can open up and talk freely about the challenges you are experiencing. At Thriveworks Counseling in Pittsburgh, PA – Fourth Avenue, our goal is to provide you with that safe space and uplifting support. If you think that you could benefit from talking to a mental health expert, consider giving us a call. Our team of professionals would love to help you in any way we can.

Getting Help: You Are Not Alone

Imagine meeting up with a friend for dinner at your favorite restaurant. You’re both excited to catch each other up on what’s been going on in your lives. You talk about work, maybe going back to school, who you’re dating, and what new hobbies you have picked up. But, after your initial check-in, you immediately start being a Debbie Downer. You just have complaint after complaint and your friend doesn’t have the heart to change the subject because they know you need to vent. At the end of the night, you feel slightly relieved that you got your feelings off your chest but still have this looming feeling of unhappiness and stress.


When we tend to vent to our friends and family, it can feel better in the moment. But to truly overcome the obstacles that are weighing you down, it’s best to adopt coping mechanisms and effective problem-solving strategies. Both of which can be hard to obtain if you’re not speaking to a trusted mental health professional. Talking to a therapist or counselor is a smart decision. Not only will it allow you to be happier around those you love, but it’ll give you a space to gain knowledge and insight into the difficult emotions you’re processing.


At Thriveworks Counseling in Pittsburgh, PA – Fourth Avenue, you can look forward to accomplishing many things when working with one of our experts, including:


  • Better communication skills
  • Effective coping strategies
  • How to identify your stressors
  • Ways to build trust in your relationships

Talk to a Qualified Thriveworks Psychiatrist

When you’re suffering from a mental or emotional disorder, the physical symptoms can feel overwhelming. You may be experiencing lethargy, loss of appetite, insomnia, panic attacks, or even hallucinations. Having the benefit of a trained medical doctor can be extremely beneficial in these cases.


This is why we offer online psychiatry appointments at Thriveworks. Psychiatrists are qualified to test and evaluate your symptoms as medical doctors and can prescribe medication when required. They can perform physical examinations and psychological tests to determine the best course of treatment and can provide psychotherapy or other talk therapy services.
