Practicing Psychologists in Waltham, MA—Work with a Psychologist Today

Imagine: You have your whole future planned out. You’ll finally be rewarded with a promotion by the end of the year and you’re sure you’ll be engaged then too. You and your partner of 5 years have been discussing the future of your relationship and you’re both ready to make the commitment—or so you thought. Suddenly, everything around you is crumbling. Instead of being promoted like you thought, you’re let go from your job. You’re told that you’re valuable but the company can’t afford to employ your position right now. Even worse, your partner brings up new concerns about your relationship and there’s no engagement in sight. You feel overwhelmed with this new information and these unwanted changes to your big plans.

“The purpose of psychology is to give us wholly novel ideas about the things that we know best.” –Paul Valery

The scenario above can certainly be disappointing and bring a bout of other emotions to the surface, including frustration and anger. We don’t always know how to process and deal with these feelings, which only makes matters worse. Fortunately, when we are in these highly stressful or emotional circumstances, we can work with a psychologist to keep our mental health in check.

The psychologists at Thriveworks Waltham can help you process and better respond to your emotions. They can also help you make important changes and decisions in your career, your relationships, and other important areas of life. The end goal is to help you live a happier, more successful life. If you have the same goal in mind, consider working with a Thriveworks Waltham psychologist. You can work with them in in-person or online sessions. To schedule your appointment, call (781) 309-9149.

How Can a Waltham Psychologist Help Me?

The Thriveworks Waltham team consists of mental health professionals who truly care about their clients. Our counselors, therapists, life coaches, and of course our psychologists, are here to help you through the challenging times in your life. As you well know, these challenges vary from stress to relationship issues, financial instability, mental illness, professional obstacles, and more. If it’s causing you distress, we want to hear about it, as we can help you tackle the problem and reduce the negative effects its having on you.

Your experience in counseling or therapy with your psychologist will depend on your unique needs and goals. They will understand what challenge you are encountering and then design a plan to help you overcome it. Let’s take a look at a few of the challenges we mentioned earlier:

  1. Stress: We will never succeed in ridding our lives of stress. It’s part of the human experience. We can, however, learn to better manage stress. If you are experiencing major stress at work, at home, in your relationships, or elsewhere, a Thriveworks Waltham Psychologist can walk you through stress management tactics.
  2. Relationship issues: As much as we’d like for our relationships to be free of conflict, this isn’t very realistic either. The relationships we have with loved ones run into challenges like poor communication, infidelity, opposing values and beliefs, etc. If you’re struggling in a romantic relationship or with a friend or family member, the psychologists at Thriveworks Waltham can serve as an unbiased third party to help you work through your challenges.
  3. Mental illness: According to Our World in Data, 792 million people across the globe have a mental illness. This means that you or someone you know has probably struggled or will struggle with depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition at some point in their lives. If you do develop symptoms, a psychologist at Thriveworks Waltham can help to determine a diagnosis and assist you in managing your illness.

Keep in mind that if you choose to work with a psychologist, they will tailor treatment to meet your needs. Your needs might consist of managing one of the problems above or another problem that did not make this list.
