Therapy, Psychiatry, and Mental Health Counseling in Toms River, NJ
A last-minute assignment at work that means staying late at work (without overtime pay). An unhappy toddler who has a breakdown at the store. An argument with your significant other that leaves you in tears and feeling uncertain about the future of your relationship. A sense of hopelessness and general disinterest in your life that grows stronger each day.
Let’s be honest: Life isn’t always pretty. Sometimes, it’s downright ugly, as we work through the anger, the stress, the disappointment, that we might experience on any given day. But you know what? That’s totally okay and normal. We all have bad days and that’s never going to change. What can change is how we respond to the bad days and our strategy for working through the challenges we encounter. One specific response and strategy that can prove extremely beneficial is talking to a counselor or another mental health professional.
“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.”
If you’ve had one too many last-minute assignments at work that have you working late; if you’re sick of standing idly by as your toddler throws a tantrum at the grocery store; if you’re done with fighting aimlessly with your significant other; if you’re over feeling hopeless or unhappy with life… talk to a counselor. Or, at least consider it. Counselors, therapists, life coaches, psychologists, and psychiatrists are professionals in the mental health field, and they can help you. They can offer honest feedback, effective science-backed tips, endless support, and more. If you’d like to take the leap and schedule an appointment, just call Thriveworks Counseling in Toms River, NJ. We are ready for you.
Should I Seek Out Mental Health Help?
The truth is that we could all benefit from seeking out mental health help. As we covered earlier, we all have bad days and that’ll never change. However, what can change is how we respond to these bad days and tough situations. A counselor, therapist, or another mental health professional can help us manage our stress at work, respond well to our kids’ needs, work through problems in our relationship, and get to the bottom of why we’re feeling a certain way.

How Does Counseling Work at Thriveworks?
At Thriveworks Counseling, we set out to meet an important mission: to help people live happy, successful lives. For us, this means getting to know each and every client on an individual level and then designing treatment with their unique needs, goals, and preferences in mind. You can expect your provider to ask you a few basic questions, which will help them get to know you a little better, such as:
- Why have you decided to pursue counseling or life coaching?
- What are you hoping to get out of this journey?
- What goals do you have for yourself?
- Have you gone to counseling before?
After your provider better understands how they can help you, they will design a plan of treatment. This plan might involve difficult (yet rewarding) conversations during sessions, homework in the form of self-care or self-exploration, and more. Again, this is determined on a person-to-person basis. Nevertheless, you can count on working with a skilled, caring, and supportive mental health professional who has your best interest at heart.
Remember, we also have psychiatrists you can partner with. These professionals can prescribe and manage medication to those struggling with a severe or persistent mental health condition. They are able to work in tandem with your therapist or counselor to offer cohesive treatment.
