People Seek Out Counseling for Many Reasons

There are many reasons why people seek assistance. Have you not been feeling like yourself lately? Maybe your anxiety is becoming increasingly more noticeable. Thriveworks Silver Spring is here to help you with whatever you are facing:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Marriage or couples counseling
  • Career changes
  • Help dealing with ongoing or new eating disorders
  • Assistance in learning to manage and overcome obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Obtaining tools necessary to learn healthy and safe ways to grieve and heal from loss

  • Divorce
  • Anger management
  • Overcoming an addiction
  • Help with setting and attaining goals

Note that this isn’t a comprehensive list of reasons people turn to Thriveworks in Silver Spring. In fact, many people are not exactly sure why they need help.

They know they’re in a place where they feel they cannot be their best self. They know they’re struggling and need help moving forward but are not exactly sure what the issue is. Counseling can help even if you are not quite sure what kind of help or assistance you need. Here is an example of how our providers might help a client:

Greg reluctantly goes to work each day. He has been in this position for three years and has not been promoted or received any positive feedback in a long time. Greg feels stuck in his career path and is not quite sure where to turn.

He has been thinking of going to college to get the degree he has always wanted — but what would he study? He has always had a passion for helping others, maybe he should try teaching? However, he also loves economics and studying how the economy works. 

Greg decides to go to see a life coach at Thriveworks Silver Spring. They discuss his likes and dislikes, his core values, and how much money he wants to make when all is said and done. After a few sessions, Greg decides teaching is his passion and applies to local colleges and is now excited to get started!

Consider Talking With a Psychiatrist Virtually

If you’re ready to put your mental health problems behind you, consider scheduling an appointment with a psychiatrist.

As a medical doctor, a psychiatrist can serve as a valuable asset in exploring the issues that are tangling you up inside. They have years of training in diagnosing and treating mental illnesses and have the expertise to administer psychotherapy and other forms of talk therapy. They can also prescribe medication if that is considered helpful for your condition.

Moving past your mental health concerns is possible and seeking assistance from the psychiatry experts at Thriveworks is a great place to start. Reach out today to schedule a virtual appointment with one of our licensed psychiatrists.

Group therapy

★★★★★
A'Lisa made the whole required process of alcohol treatment not seem so bad. I should not have had to do it. But her approach to teaching the group made me actually look forward to coming. Her lessons could be applied as whole life lessons, not just in reference to recovery. I was actually so satisfied with her that I began individual sessions with her after program completion. Thanks so much for this experience.
