Therapy, Psychiatry, and Mental Health Counseling in State College, PA

How do you deal with your stress? What helps you relax? Some of us have healthy ways of coping; others cling to destructive or unhealthy ways of coping. Once these unhealthy coping mechanisms are established, they can be very difficult to change. You may turn to alcohol, other unhealthy substances, or some other negative behavior. If you are finding that your stress is becoming unmanageable or overwhelming, consider letting a Thriveworks State College counselor or therapist help you find ways to manage it and process it in a healthy way.

When we evaluate the need for counseling or therapy, we often measure functioning from a -10 to a zero. A person at a -10 would be nearly unable to get out of bed, make decisions, hold a job, or communicate effectively. A person at a 0 would be nearly unhindered by mental health issues such as depression or panic attacks. A Thriveworks counselor or therapist in State College, PA can help you improve your functioning and find victory over your mental health issues.

In life coaching, we often take someone from a 0 to a +10. Life or career coaching is for the individual that is highly functioning in life but is hoping to achieve more and realize their dreams. If you have dreams that you have put on a shelf for years or decades, isn’t it time to breathe new life into them? Let your dreams see the light of day. Contact Thriveworks Counseling in State College, PA, and let us help you focus on your dreams, understand your strengths, and create the life you have always wanted.

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 and issues. Let Thriveworks Counseling in State College help you find your voice and find victory.

Counseling Benefits: Happiness, Fulfillment, and More

Some of the benefits that are common for those seeking any form of professional counseling or life coaching include:

  • A better understanding of self.
  • Becoming more realistic about your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Clearly defining your goals and dreams.
  • Developing a better way to deal with your emotions.
  • Understanding the past.
  • Being more prepared for the emotional turmoil of the future.
  • Feeling more fulfilled.

We are not guaranteeing that you will achieve all of these benefits, but experiencing a few is quite likely. When you have the chance to talk about your life, your feelings, your emotions, and your relationships, you gain a better understanding of yourself, what is beneficial to you, and what steps you need to take to move forward in a healthy manner.

In addition to counseling, we can also offer psychiatry services — a psychiatrist can offer medication management to complement your work in counseling. If you are struggling with a mental health condition and think you could benefit from medication, consider working with one of our psychiatrists. Our providers will work together to create and implement a cohesive treatment plan that meets your needs.
