Sometimes in life, we take one step forward and two steps back. We make great progress or finally feel happy and content—and then something happens to throw us off course again. For example: You and your spouse finally get the opportunity to have a date night, just the two of you. You couldn’t be more excited or grateful that you get to spend a couple hours alone together. But the minute you get seated at your dinner table, things take a turn for the worst. Your spouse gets a call from work: It’s an emergency, you’re told, he has to go into the office. You told your spouse how important this was to you. You feel like he could care less about your needs or feelings.
We encounter these road bumps in our relationships, in our careers, and in more personal areas, too. In any case, a psychologist can help us navigate our way over these bumps in the road, with as little damage as possible. In the example above, a psychologist can help you and your spouse understand each other’s needs and have important (yet sometimes difficult) discussions about any relationship issues you might be having.

How Can a Psychologist at Thriveworks Richmond Help Me?
As you can see in the example above, a psychologist at Thriveworks Richmond can help you work through relationship issues and better communicate your needs with your partner or spouse. But this isn’t the only realm they can help with. Our psychologists can help you in other important areas of life too, including:
- Happiness and success at work: The psychologists at Thriveworks Richmond can help you find happiness and success in your career, too. This might involve learning how to better manage stress, exploring different job opportunities, or adjusting your attitude in your current workplace. The majority of us spend most of our days (and therefore, our lives) at work, and so it’s important that we are happy with our jobs.
- Personal fulfillment: Our Thriveworks Richmond Psychologists can help to ensure you feel personally fulfilled, too. Personal fulfillment can come from many different areas of life, including our relationships, our jobs, and our hobbies. If you’re lacking personal fulfillment or purpose, they can help you explore different avenues for securing that. This, too, is important to your overall health and wellbeing.
- Mental health upkeep: And perhaps most importantly, the psychologists at Thriveworks Richmond can also help with general mental health upkeep. This means working through any symptoms of a mental illness, learning about the importance of self-care, performing stress reduction and stress management, and so on. They can help you overcome whatever mental health challenge lies before you.
Your psychologist will do everything they can to assist you. They’ll need you to be open and honest with them, so that they can best understand your needs as well as your goals. This understanding will inform your treatment plan.
