Counseling, Therapy, and Psychiatry in Salem, MA
We can all use a little help now and then. Our children need help with their homework. We need help with our taxes and financial planning. When learning a new sport, we enlist the help of a coach. We enlist the help of professionals in many different areas of life.
Why not for our mental health and emotional status? Why do we not give attention to our goals and dreams in life in the same way that we give attention to our business, our children’s education, or our physical health?
It is normal to need a helping hand and to look for someone that is able to give us the help that we need. When you connect with a Thriveworks Salem provider, you are taking the first step in creating the life that you need.

Why Seek Coaching or Counseling?
If you are seeking counseling, the reason may be very serious and traumatic, or it may be simply seeking career or life coaching. Whatever you are facing, we have a Thriveworks provider who can meet this need. Our lives are full of problems and issues on a daily basis.
Trouble in our relationships, with our children, or in our extended family, is very common. We are all flawed individuals, and our issues multiply when we are together. When you connect with a Thriveworks Salem counselor, we can help diagnose the various pieces of the puzzle of your relationship.
The reasons that individuals, families, and couples seek therapy or counseling are unique and individualized in every situation. Some of these are very serious and complicated, and some are simply dealing with life transitions and changes. In coaching, people are looking to achieve more and make their goals and dreams a reality. They may be simply looking for a short pause button during their week in which to regroup.
People of all ages can benefit from speaking with a coach or counselor, from the very young to the very mature. It may not be an easy decision, but it is a very important and meaningful decision. Reasons to pursue counseling may include:
- Anxiety issues
- Sexual issues
- Couples counseling
- Career coaching
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Grief counseling
- Problems with a child
- Stress management
- Divorce recovery
- Anger management
- Addiction issues
- Life coaching
- Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job
When you read through this list, perhaps you were able to identify the issue that you are facing immediately. Or perhaps you did not see your personal problem and feel discouraged. There is no need to feel this way. The problems we deal with on a daily basis may be so complicated, unique, and personal, it is difficult to sum them up into a bullet point or a few words.
Every human is unique, as are their problems. We can put you into contact with a Thriveworks Salem Counseling professional that has experience dealing with your unique area of need. We will match you with the perfect provider.
When a Loved One is Struggling
Slammed doors, screaming matches, lies, late nights; some of these things are normal in life, but they can also indicate a serious problem. If your home sounds like this, you could benefit from talking with a Thriveworks provider. You owe it to yourself and your loved one to try to create more harmony in your home. This type of home life does not have to be the norm. Make the effort to create the life your family really needs.
Teenagers are dealing with many stressors and temptations. Drugs, social media, peer pressure, college, and career plans; sometimes it is helpful to have a listening ear that is not a family member. A Thriveworks Provider may be able to reach your child or teenager in a way you cannot as a parent. When your sweet young daughter is now a sullen teenager, she may spend hours in her room, on her phone, and unwilling to talk to her family.
If you, as a parent or caregiver, have a feeling something might be wrong, do not ignore that instinct. Children are often unable to speak up for themselves and are unaware that counseling is even an option. If a child has suffered a trauma, it can be very difficult to get him or her to open up and express their feelings. Thriveworks is able to meet a child right where they are at and gently work through their feelings and emotions.
When you have a loved one that is struggling with addiction or some other serious issue, you can feel lonely and scared. You have worked together, giving everything you have to help your spouse or partner conquer this problem. But at the end of the day, you have run out of options. When someone is ready to seek professional help, you want to be able to direct them to reliable, trustworthy help. Thriveworks Counseling in Salem is the answer.
When you and your spouse or partner are disagreeing and fighting, it may quickly become “normal.” You are too busy with your responsibilities to address these serious issues, and resentment begins to grow. If your relationship or marriage is in trouble we also have providers ready to help in this area as well. Two people can have very different communication styles, daily habits, and goals for their relationships.
Deep-seated hurts can cause so many hard feelings, it can be difficult to know where to start in repairing a relationship. We can address each partner’s fears, needs, and misunderstandings. Thriveworks Providers in Salem are experts in repairing relationships and can help you begin to recover.
Should I Talk to a Thriveworks Psychiatrist?
If you’re experiencing panic attacks, sleep difficulties, addictive behaviors, a persistent low mood, or another mental health symptom, you may benefit from the help of a licensed psychiatrist.
Psychiatrists are different from other mental health professionals in that they are medical doctors who are trained specifically to address mental and emotional disorders.
After a thorough evaluation of your physical and psychological symptoms, your psychiatrist will develop a plan for effective treatment. This may take many forms depending on your specific situation but will typically involve some form of talk therapy or prescription medication (or a combination of both).
If mental health issues are holding you back from living a healthy and fulfilling life, get in touch with a licensed telepsychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling in Salem, MA today.
