Raleigh Counseling— North Carolina Mental Health Services, Psychiatry

Think about your health care needs. What professionals support your overall well-being? Many people see a primary care physician when they are ill or for preventative health care needs. Many also see specialized doctors—endocrinologists, oncologists, OB/GYNs, cardiologists, and more.

Many people lean on these professionals to keep their body fit and fueled. Not long ago, most people’s list would have stopped here, but these days, more and more people are including a life coach, therapist, or counselor on this list. These mental health professionals are supporting people’s overall well-being through caring for their minds and emotions.

The staff at Thriveworks Counseling in Raleigh, NC agrees: physical health is important and so is mental health. People are whole—in their mind and body. Physical health affects mental health. Mental health affects physical health. They both matter. Unfortunately, mental health has not always received its due.

Social stigmas have labeled counseling and therapy as “weak,” but the reality is that just as everyone will likely face physical health problems, they will also likely face mental health problems at some point. There is no shame in reaching out for help from a mental health professional, just as there is no shame in going to see a doctor.

At Thriveworks Counseling, it is our privilege to stand with our clients as they fight for their mental health. Our therapists, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches are often able to provide support and guidance that bring symptom relief, professional advancement, and personal growth. And they can do so in in-person counseling or online counseling—it’s whatever works best for you.

Mental Health and Life’s Challenges

What are the two guarantees in life? Yes, death and taxes. Let’s add a third: life is a rollercoaster. Everyone has ups. Everyone has downs. Life is full of joys and challenges, opportunities and setbacks. How people respond, however, is not a guarantee.

Think about these situations. What difference could guidance and support make for responding to these challenges and opportunities?

  • Your job is a fantastic fit. It’s just right for your experience and skills. You are well-liked and doing well. But will it be a good fit in three years? If you were to make a change, what would it be? A new career? Moving up the ladder?
  • You and your family just relocated, and your teens are not adjusting well. They are sweet kids, but it has been a rough six months since they found out they were moving. You have done what you know to be supportive, but you are out of ideas.
  • You recognize this habit is trouble. You want to stop. You have tried to stop. What started as occasional use has become daily use, and every time you take two steps forward, you take one step back.
  • You are the luckiest. Everything is going really well with you and your partner. You moved in together a while ago, and you are head over heels. You have been talking about the possibility of marriage. What’s the right next step to keep growing as a couple?
  • Life has changed on a dime. Your dearest friend, your confidant, your other half was here one day and not the next. Grief is overwhelming. It hurts to breathe. How could life ever be normal again?

Can you resonate with any of these situations? Most can in some way, shape, or form. Perhaps the details differ, but the feelings are the same. When life presents an opportunity or a challenge, many people invite mental health professionals to help them navigate the emotions and the relational dynamics of their given situation.

Life coaches, therapists, and counselors can often help people process their feelings, stay focused upon what matters, and find the mental health care options they need.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Raleigh, every client receives personalized care. Our professionals tailor treatment to each individual, and we work hard to establish therapy as a place where clients can share freely and without fear or judgment. A few of the reasons clients have pursued mental health care at Thriveworks Counseling include…

Each client receives individualized care, and treatment plans are based upon the specific issues that clients present. There is no one way to respond to these issues, and so clients and therapists often work together to find the treatment options that are most effective for their particular circumstances.

The Benefits of Psychiatry Counseling

If you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, or another mental health issue, there is likely a physical and mental component to what you’re experiencing. As medical doctors, psychiatrists can conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your symptoms and determine an appropriate course of action.

Depending on your situation, you may benefit from medication, psychotherapy, or a multifaceted approach involving both. Psychiatrists are also equipped to administer exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and various other forms of therapy.

If you’re struggling with mental health issues, contact Thriveworks Counseling in Raleigh, NC today to get access to expert psychiatry counseling via phone call or video chat.

I have known Mrs. Ashley Barber-Brown for 18 years now and I can honestly say that she is truly an amazing person. Besides her strong will to work hard and take care of her family, Ashley is also compassionate and undoubtedly dedicated to making sure that she helps others. Her selflessness, loyalty and authentic personality are just some of the many attributes that I admire about her.

Counselor-Kim Henley

★★★★★
Kim is an amazing counselor. There have only been three persons I trusted with my story. One was a therapist that seemed more uncomfortable than I was after I shared. The next was an awesome therapist that passed away. Before he died he introduced our group to someone new. We were all very reluctant to have to share with someone new, after taking years to disclose out abuse to anyone. Kim is amazing. She allows us to share when we feel comfortable, and seems to know when to just listen and when a reply is needed. It’s very hard to share, to open up and expose ourselves to anyone. I trust and recommend Kim. When I have a rough day or a bad memory, I don’t have to hold on to it. I take it to my safe place, the room where a victim without a voice transforms into a person that matters. It is a safe place where I don’t have to take the burdens I walk in with back out with me.

Kim is the best

★★★★★
I would have never considered going to a support group or receiving counseling because I was raised to think that you should just get over it, or if you talk to a counselor you are “crazy.” I have to say that I was definitely taught wrong. I have went through so much, from being in an extremely violent and controlling relationship, as well as other trauma& I am so glad I connected with Kim, and am finally able to heal. Kim is very supportive and nonjudgemental& I highly recommend her!!
