Watertown Counseling—Therapy, Life Coaching, Mental Health Services in Watertown, MA

Pick up a newspaper or turn on the evening news. Most of what we hear in today’s world is bad news. The world presents us with many opportunities to feel discouraged. Combine societal problems with our daily responsibilities and interpersonal issues, and the amount of stress and anxiety for one person can be overwhelming. This is when contacting a Thriveworks counselor, therapist, life coach, or psychologist can be helpful. This person can be your lifesaver in a sea of turmoil.

When we discuss counseling or therapy, we often measure functioning from a -10 to a zero. A person at a -10 would be nearly unable to get out of bed, make decisions, or communicate effectively. A person at a 0 would be nearly unhindered by mental health issues such as depression or panic attacks. A Thriveworks mental health professional in Watertown, MA can help you improve your functioning and find victory in overcoming your mental health issues.

In life coaching, we often take someone from a 0 to a +10. Life or career coaching is for the individual that is highly functioning in life but is hoping to achieve more, and work on realizing their dreams. If you have dreams that you have put on a shelf for years or decades, isn’t it time to breathe new life into them? Let your dreams see the light of day. Contact a Thriveworks life coach in Watertown, MA, and let us help you focus your dreams, understand your strengths, and create the life you have always wanted.

Why Pursue Counseling or Life Coaching?

It is completely expected and normal for people in all different fields to pursue outside assistance, coaching, or guidance. Elite athletes have coaches; when you are ill, you seek medical attention; your child has teachers and guidance counselors. Your emotional and psychological health is no different. People of all ages and socioeconomic statuses can benefit from counseling and coaching.

Thriveworks counselors have experience working in many different areas of coaching and counseling. If you are facing a tragic and unexpected event in your family, with your child, or in your relationship, you can nearly be paralyzed with despair, fear, and possibly embarrassment. There is no need to feel embarrassed when considering reaching out for help. Providers are bound by law to maintain confidentiality. We are ready to connect you with a counselor who can help you work your way through this difficult situation, find light at the end of the tunnel, and create a new, healthy normal.

Reasons to pursue counseling or coaching may include:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Blended families
  • Eating disorders
  • Sexual issues
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Panic attacks
  • Stress management
  • Career coaching
  • Grief counseling
  • Divorce recovery
  • Child therapy
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

There are as many different reasons to seek counseling or coaching as there are personalities in the world. While it is impossible to list all of the reasons that cause individuals or families to seek counseling, please understand that we are ready to meet whatever needs you have at the time. Whatever the situation, concern, or goal that has caused you to reach this page, you have arrived at the right place. We are ready to help you remember your self-worth, your value, and your self-confidence.

What If a Loved One Needs Help?

We all know the dismal statistics on marriage. Maybe you have come to this page because your spouse or your relationship is struggling. Whether you have been married for one year or fifty years, you know that marriage is not always sunshine and flowers. Days are long, there is little time to connect, and bad habits of poor communication are not easily changed. We take each other for granted, and have trouble expressing our true feelings. A Thriveworks couples therapist or marriage counselor can help you restore your relationship, and remember the love that you have for one another. We can help you both decide how you want your future to look.

Maybe you have come to this page because you are looking for help for a child or teenager. If you are living with a wayward teenager, every day can be a struggle. Slammed doors, late nights, screaming, silence, and secrecy; some of this is common in adolescence, but it can also be a sign of more serious trouble. If you, as a parent, have an instinctual feeling that your child needs help, that should not be ignored. A Thriveworks counselor may be able to reach your child or teenager in a way that you cannot as a parent.

While it is not possible to force someone to get help or to change, even when they need it, it can be helpful to provide them resources for doing so. If you have a loved that is struggling with addiction, it can be difficult to reach them, and lonely to live without them while they are lost in a sea of addiction. When your loved one is finally ready for help, a Thriveworks counselor in Watertown, MA can walk alongside your family in recovery and rebuilding your life together. When one person is battling addiction, the whole family unit is affected.
