How Can Therapy or Counseling Help Me?

You don’t have to be going through the toughest week, month, or year of your life to feel justified in seeking mental health help. In fact, many clients are happy or fulfilled when they walk through our doors—but they also recognize that there is a problem they need help identifying or addressing. That said, many others are having the toughest week, month, or year of their life. These individuals might be facing challenges like:

  • Depression or anxiety
  • Eating disorders or body image issues
  • Social isolation or loneliness
  • Relationship issues
  • Lack of motivation
  • Problems at work or school
  • Major life changes

The above are common topics discussed in therapy. This means if you yourself are experiencing a challenge on this list, you are not alone. Many people struggle with a mental illness and the harmful symptoms that come with it, crippling feelings of loneliness or social isolation, relationship issues that threaten to shake their entire world.

So, if something on (or off) this list hits close to home, don’t hesitate in reaching out to a therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Waltham, MA. Here are a couple of specific examples of how they can lead you toward a better life:

  1. Stress is a normal part of life—but it can also be incredibly damaging to your mental health. If you feel like you could better manage the stress in your life, a counselor or therapist at Thriveworks in Waltham can help. They will guide you in identifying the sources of your stress and implementing stress-relieving techniques. Your counselor might pull from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques and others.
  2. Most couples run into issues, big and small, over the course of their relationship, which might have to do with jealousy, trust, values, money management, and visions for the future. Furthermore, many couples aren’t equipped to handle these issues effectively. If you and your partner are facing a tough problem or have concerns about your relationship, a couples counselor at Thriveworks can help.
  3. It can be scary to accept and then manage the symptoms of a serious mental illness, but it doesn’t have to be. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Waltham can help you make sense of what you’re experiencing.

These are just a few examples of the challenges you might come to Thriveworks in Waltham for. The truth is that it doesn’t matter what problem you are wrestling with—the counselors and therapists want to hear about it, and they want to guide you to a better place.

Should I Talk to a Licensed Psychiatrist?

While there are many types of mental health professionals, licensed psychiatrists specialize in treating mental, emotional, and behavioral issues from a medical perspective. They are trained to consider both physical and psychological symptoms as part of a holistic diagnosis and treatment process.

No two individuals experience mental and emotional disorders in exactly the same way. For that reason, your psychiatrist will work with you to find a treatment plan that makes sense for you. Psychotherapy and medication are two common tools used during the course of treatment.

Mental health issues don’t have to hold you back from living the life you want. Get in touch with us today at Thriveworks Counseling in Waltham, MA to learn more about how virtual psychiatry counseling can help you.
