Counseling, Therapy, and Psychiatry in Portland, ME
If you think there’s just one reason people turn to counseling or life coaching then you’re in for a surprise. There are literally dozens of reasons people may need to seek help from mental health professionals. For example:
- Stress from work is overwhelming
- Symptoms of depression or anxiety are creeping in
- Relationships are suffering
- Parents disagree on parenting styles
- Traumatic experiences leave lasting effects
- The loss of a loved one proves too painful to bear
At Thriveworks in Portland, ME, our team sees people from all walks of life, all with unique problems that need addressing. If you are experiencing challenges in your life that you could use some help with, consider reaching out. We can set you up with a therapist, a counselor, a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or a life coach upon receipt of your call.
Who Can Therapy Help?
It would be difficult to cover every reason a person pursues counseling or life coaching, but some common reasons include:
- Seeking out couples counseling
- Pursuing career counseling help
- Finding a solution for anxious or depressive thoughts
- Assistance in handling obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Help and support with grief or loss
- Behavioral problems in children and teens
Parents also come to us for help with their kids or teens, newly divorced former spouses get help coming to terms with and moving on from their divorce. Clients need anger management, addicts or alcoholics seek treatment for addiction. People going through a significant life transition like losing a job may seek counseling, and others just want general life coaching or help with setting and achieving goals.
If you’ve read through these reasons and are worried that the reasons you want help aren’t covered, worry not: There are many other reasons. Likewise, if you worry that you don’t even know for sure why you need help, or you don’t know how to articulate it, we can help you too. At Thriveworks in Portland, ME, we assist people with serious, complicated issues—even when they can’t easily identify what those issues are.
The answer to “Who can therapy help?” is a long-winded one. If you think that you could benefit from some mental health help, therapy can likely help you, too.
When Should You See a Psychiatrist?
If you have emotional or behavioral symptoms that are interfering with your day-to-day life, consider consulting a licensed psychiatrist (MD) at Thriveworks in Portland, ME. Psychiatrists are trained to diagnose, treat, and help prevent complex mental health conditions like major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and bipolar disorder (manic depression). Thriveworks psychiatrists can do full client assessments through online counseling sessions. They can prescribe medications like antidepressants to help support healthy brain functioning. They can also hold appointments for medication management.
Invest in Your Mental Health and Wellbeing
Many people spend significant amounts of their lives caring for others, whether it’s their children, their spouses, their parents, or their co-workers. However, those same people often don’t spend nearly as much time taking care of themselves.
Think about it: How long do you spend planning for your own dreams and goals? Many people have put themselves on hold for entirely too long. Too often people simply live with the status quo because they don’t know what to do to move forward, or they don’t know how to do it.
The truth is that you can do more. You can do more. This isn’t your dress rehearsal: It’s your only shot. If now isn’t the time to change, if now isn’t the time to start taking care of yourself, when will it be time? If you’re not working to reach your goals and dreams, who will? Remember that the better you feel and the healthier you are emotionally, the better you will be able to help others in your life.
