Have you ever thought about working with a counselor or therapist? Have you ever considered receiving mental health services? For many of us, our mental health takes a backseat to daily demands of work, our relationships, and other important areas. We forget just how important our mental health is—that being in a good place mentally allows us to accomplish tasks at work, put energy into our most important relationships, and in the grand scheme of things live a happy, fulfilling life.
Counseling has to do with intuition, with work on oneself, with the quietness of one’s mind, and the openness of one’s heart.” –Ram Dass

How Can Therapy or Counseling Help Me?
Therapy, also known as counseling, is meeting with a therapist to work through conflicts and challenges that harm or threaten your mental wellbeing. Your experience might involve discussing problematic thoughts and behaviors, like self-pity and binge-drinking; it might mean opening up about the trauma that you experienced in your childhood, such as physical abuse or bullying; or, it might involve having important conversations with your partner about what is and isn’t working in your relationship. Whatever it may be, a therapist can help you take the right, life-changing steps.
Therapy is different for everyone. If you choose to work with a therapist, counselor, or life coach at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Richmond, your provider will design your experience based on your specific needs and goals. For example, if you are experiencing symptoms of depression, your therapist might utilize techniques in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps people understand and change problematic thinking patterns. Or, if you and your significant other have decided to work with a couples therapist, your therapist might focus on assisting the two of you with improving the way you speak to each other. They might use couples therapy worksheets to supplement treatment.

Their medical background is often essential to bringing a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses.
When you work with one of our board-certified psychiatrists, you will undergo a thorough assessment of your symptoms, both mental and physical. Psychiatrists can also conduct psychological testing or prescribe medication if that is helpful in your situation.
