What image comes to mind when you think of mental health help? Many people conjure a picture of a client lying on a beige couch, talking intensely for an hour while a silent, bearded, Freud-like doctor takes copious notes. Maybe that’s what counseling looked like in Vienna, Austria in the 19th century, but these days mental health providers are well-versed in many diverse, evidence-based psychological approaches besides psychoanalysis.
For example, your psychotherapist might be a more dynamic listener, asking you questions and offering practical solutions to your problems. Your counselor might meet with you online instead of in their office in order to accommodate your busy schedule. Or you might schedule a session with a psychiatrist who understands how underlying neurochemical imbalances can lead to depression and other disorders.
No matter what kind of help you seek, Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Sunnyvale can match you to an exceptional mental health provider when you call today to schedule your first appointment.
