You probably have a primary care physician –– someone you visit to check up on your physical health. You might also visit other specialists like a cardiologist, audiologist, or endocrinologist depending on what your doctor recommends. Many people also work with a health professional like a nutritionist or personal trainer to improve their physical fitness.
In the past, that’s where the list might have ended. Today, more and more people work with mental health professionals to manage and improve their mental health. Your mental health is the bedrock for everything else in your life –– your performance at work, relationships with other people, and your overall happiness. Spending time to care for your mental state can benefit every other part of your life.

Therapy and Counseling: Should I Try It?
Some people think that therapists and counselors can only help you if you’re suffering from a severe mental illness. While therapy is incredibly helpful for those with severe mental disorders, it can also help anyone dealing with stress, loss, or relationship difficulties.
Professional counseling or therapy can help people in situations like these:
- John moved to a new city but his social anxiety is keeping him from making new friends. He’s feeling lost and alone.
- Jackie’s new job is much more intense than her previous position and she’s having trouble managing her time and productivity.
- Gregory has always struggled with depression but lately, it’s gotten worse. Getting out of bed is a challenge each and every day.
- Daniel and Samantha are new parents who are having trouble communicating. They spend a lot of time arguing and worry if their fights are impacting their son.
Mental health care can help anyone –– no matter if you’re living with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or something else. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling can set up a judgment-free space for you to discuss whatever you’re going through and help you find a way forward.

Can a Licensed Psychiatrist Help Me?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions. Their medical training helps them rule out or treat any physical causes of a mental disorder –– for example, some people experience changes in their mood and mental state after a concussion.
Psychiatrists are also able to prescribe medication for their clients. For some, medication can help reduce the symptoms of a mental health condition and make it easier to manage. Not all treatment plans will involve medication but it can help some clients, especially in tandem with talk therapy.
