Many of us care for our physical health — we stay active, visit the doctor when we’re sick, and try to eat well. It makes perfect sense to do that because poor physical health can have serious consequences and lead to a lower quality of life. It’s worthwhile to take some small steps now for a better outcome later.
The same is true for our mental health. Mental disorders can cause difficult physical and psychological symptoms when they are left untreated. If you really want to thrive and get the most out of your life, your mental and emotional health can’t simply be an afterthought. Taking charge of your mental and emotional well-being now can lead to a healthier, happier, and more balanced life. Our psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, counselors, and life coaches are here to help.
There are many reasons why people don’t get the mental health treatment they need. They may not feel their symptoms are severe enough to warrant professional attention. They may feel a sense of shame regarding their condition and feel they should be able to “snap out of it.” Life can be stressful and it’s easy to put your mental health on the back burner, even if you know you need help.
Fortunately, under the guidance of a licensed professional, many mental and emotional disorders are highly treatable. It may be hard to imagine a way out, but the licensed mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Tempe are standing by to help.
Should I See a Mental Health Professional?
Mental health counseling is a service that can benefit anyone. While counselors, clinical social workers, and therapists help people struggling with severe mental and emotional disorders, they also help people who are facing the death of a loved one, relationship issues, and major life transitions.

Should I Speak With a Board-Certified Psychiatrist?
While our team of mental health professionals is experienced at caring for all sorts of mental health issues, psychiatrists are uniquely qualified to treat mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues from a medical perspective. They have the medical training to conduct a thorough physical and psychological examination and administer the full range of treatment options, including prescription medications.
Treatment for mental health conditions is customized and may include medication, some form of talk therapy, or a combination of the two. Your psychiatrist will work with you to identify the factors that may be contributing to your symptoms and tailor a treatment plan that makes sense for you.
