Experience effective therapy with a counselor or therapist in West Des Moines

Our mental and emotional health shapes us. If it’s strong, we feel confident in our decisions and are able to navigate our problems. But when our mental and emotional health falters, we can feel lost, confused, and adrift.

Consider these three scenarios:

  • Jake, only 10 years old, is grieving the death of his pet dog. Jake grew up with this dog — it was his constant companion and its death has made him feel incredibly stressed. Unable to cope, he lashes out in ways he never has before.
  • Naveed has been a rower since his college days. Now in his fifties, his arthritis has recently made it impossible for him to row. He sits in front of his property’s lake and stares at the water, longing to be back in it. Each day away from his boat makes him feel more and more disengaged with the world.
  • Zoe used to love taking evening walks in the neighborhood near her apartment. But after being attacked one evening, she hasn’t felt safe going out alone. She stays in her apartment, afraid of the outside world and the people in it.

Each of the above three people is experiencing loss — loss of a pet, loss of a physical function and a hobby, and loss of freedom. But each situation may require a different course of action. An individual therapist, family therapist, professional counselor, clinical psychologist, or another licensed professional can address the unique symptoms surrounding each person’s situation and create a treatment plan that’s specific to the individual’s needs.

Whether you’ve experienced loss, depression, or another mental illness or disorder, we want to help you find stability and regain control. Consider setting up an appointment with one of our team members at Thriveworks in West Des Moines, IA to begin your treatment.

Can Counseling and Therapy Help Me?

For all its furniture and gadgets, the thing that makes a house a house is its structure. The beams, walls, and roof shelter you from the wind, rain, and other elements.

Counseling and psychotherapy can serve a similar function, providing protection against the challenges and difficulties that threaten our emotional and mental health. The coping techniques, tools, and self-care practices you learn from your therapist or counselor can shelter you from whatever comes your way.

To get there, you have to first address what causes you mental or emotional stress. For many of our clients, this can include the following:

  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Divorce or separation
  • Life transitions
  • Physical illnesses
  • Grief or loss
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Behavioral issues
  • Abuse or trauma
  • Addiction
  • Depression

After you set up an appointment with a mental health professional at Thriveworks in West Des Moines, IA, they’ll begin by assessing your concerns and creating a treatment plan that’s customized to fit your situation. Connect with us to schedule your first online therapy (virtual counseling) or in-person appointment.
