Will loves being an active member of his community, even though he tends to overbook himself. A lot of people wonder where Will gets his energy, but on the inside, he experiences social burnout. His solution has always been to push harder, to engage with more people, in an attempt to overcome his desire to stay home and recharge. Though he’s managed to keep the act going consistently for years, Will knows that deep down, he’s running out of time.
But instead of continuing to avoid the pent-up feelings he holds on the inside, Will feels ready to confront them. But not by himself—Will wants to talk with a mental health professional, someone with the ability to help. He hopes that by opening up to a counselor about the social anxiety that he deals with daily, he can learn to manage the difficult and distracting emotions that his social anxiety dredges up.
Like Will, it’s common for many of us to feel like we have nowhere to turn to, at least until we are ready to talk with a mental health professional. And at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry San Antonio, we hire only the best providers to help you with your mental health challenges. If you’re ready to take the first step forward by connecting with someone at our office, give us a call today.
How Can a Mental Health Professional Help Me?
At Thriveworks, our providers know that everyone’s mental health needs are different. That’s why we’re set apart from other mental health companies; we offer our clients a personalized treatment plan, one that will provide them with the tools and coping strategies they need to enjoy a better quality of life. While everyone is faced with a different set of obstacles, our providers commonly help clients who are:
- Noticing that anxiety and racing thoughts are upsetting their daily life
- Having difficulty coping with and regulating work or family-related stress
- Difficulty regulating emotions like anger or grief
- Feeling sad or hopeless for an extended period of time
- Experiencing issues in their marriage or relationship
Talking openly and honestly with your counselor is a great way to give them the insight they need to help you start feeling better. Regardless of the type of mental health professional that you’re paired with, sharing your experience is an integral part of the healing experience.
Online Psychiatry with Thriveworks
These days, it’s easy to find most products and services just by searching for them on a smartphone or laptop. At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry San Antonio, we believe that accessing mental health services should be that easy, too. Online psychiatry offers a way for people to effortlessly get the mental health care that they want, on their own terms.
A psychiatrist is a specialized type of mental health professional. They specialize in treating cases of more severe or persistent mental health disorders, specifically mental health conditions like:
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Major depression
- Eating disorders
- Even issues related to substance abuse and addiction
Psychiatrists are also set apart from other providers because of their medical backgrounds. In addition to being licensed therapists, psychiatrists are:
- Medical doctors
- Able to prescribe helpful medications for people to better manage and mitigate their symptoms
- Capable of using talk or behavioral therapy in conjunction with a prescription for better results
Talking virtually with a psychologist allows you to conveniently attend sessions from nearly anywhere. As long as you have a reliable internet connection and somewhere private to talk, you’ll be set. And with our online psychiatric sessions, you may feel more comfortable talking from the comfort of your chosen space than in a clinical setting.

They’ll be sure to address any concerns or questions that you may have, and your treatment preferences will be considered. While psychiatry isn’t for everyone, you may find that talking to one of our psychiatrists makes a positive improvement to your mental health.
