Need more help deciding?

This world is full of trouble. Stress at work, fighting at home, sickness, disease, war, politics; we rarely have worry-free days. Everyone feels stress and worry at some time in life, but not everyone develops depression or anxiety disorders. These disorders are generally diagnosed when worry or sadness interfere with the tasks of daily living. It becomes difficult to maintain relationships, be successful at work, and make decisions. When your life becomes overwhelming and depression and anxiety are taking over the joy you once had, it’s time to connect with a Thriveworks Westborough counselor or therapist.

These disorders are not always easy to diagnose, or to treat, but with the help of a Thriveworks Counseling in Westborough depression or anxiety counselor, it is possible to find relief. We have trained psychologists, ready to partner with you on this journey of healing and recovery. The decision to seek counseling or therapy is not always easy, but it is always helpful. When you decide to seek counseling, you are making a beneficial decision for not only yourself, but also for your loved ones. It can be very challenging to deal with a person that is struggling with depression or anxiety. When you begin counseling, you are starting a new chapter for your entire family.

Dealing with Anxiety

When you are dealing with an anxiety disorder, even getting out of the house in the morning can be challenging. Going to a grocery store can be overwhelming. Visiting your child’s school may be impossible. These disorders can appear at any time in life, and come on suddenly or over a long period of time. They affect people of any age and socioeconomic status. “Anxiety is one of those emotions that we all feel at some point,” explains Stephanie Wuebbens, a Licensed Psychologist at our Westborough office. “Remember how you felt the first time you had to stand up in front of your class and give a presentation out loud, for instance. Worry and stress are related to anxiety; worry is a bit less intense, and stress is both more chronic and more sneaky. Anxiety gets in our way when it begins to negatively impact our lives: we start avoiding things that make us anxious, or some of the physical symptoms begin to happen frequently, such as an upset stomach or a pounding heart.”

There are many different types of anxiety issues and disorders. These include:

  • School phobia (particularly in children)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Panic disorder
  • Agoraphobia (fear of specific places or situations)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Separation Anxiety

Anxiety disorders can be very troubling for the person suffering from them, and also for their loved ones. When you have to avoid many different places and situations in order to not suffer from anxiety, you feel like a prisoner in your own life. “Therapy can help in a couple of ways: it teaches us how to stay in the moment, that anxious thinking may pop up unbidden but we can learn to take charge of our thinking. Sometimes, it can help us identify root causes of our anxiety, and sometimes we can simply accept that anxiety can happen without letting it take control,” says Wuebbens.

For a child, having issues with anxiety may be difficult to understand. These problems can appear differently in children, perhaps with the child or teenager acting out or becoming uninterested in school or activities. Thriveworks Westborough counselors and psychologists can help your child express their feelings in a clear way and begin the process of understanding. Although the world is overwhelming for adults with anxiety, it is even more so for children. Thriveworks in Westborough counselors can be a source of comfort for the entire family when they are struggling with anxiety.

Understanding Depression

Depression makes the world seem like a very dark and dismal place. You may feel like others are out to get you, you cannot catch a break, or that you cannot make a good decision. Even the simplest daily tasks become difficult. Going to work, getting out of bed in the morning, making meals and eating, everything can be overwhelmingly painful and challenging. Wuebbens explains further: “Depression includes a complex set of symptoms depending on its root cause. It’s not merely sadness or grief, or it may have started as sadness or grief that became deeper and more chronic. It can involve physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping (or sleeping too much), overeating or not feeling hungry, a feeling of deep fatigue. It often involves cognitive symptoms such as self-deprecating thoughts, thinking about the negatives over and over, seeing very little good in your life, and at its worst, thoughts about self-harm.”

There are many different options in the treatment for depression. Medication can sometimes be helpful, as well as talk therapy, and establishing a healthy routine for your daily life. “Therapy can help sort through the feelings of overwhelm, begin to change habits that may have lapsed such as good sleep routines or healthy eating, and change thinking patterns to change the way you feel. If depression is a result of bad events in your life, you can begin to make sense of those events. If there’s ‘no good reason’ for your depression, the actual reasons for the depression can be explored,” says Wuebbens.

Different types of treatment work for different ages, personalities, and genders. We understand the different needs of individuals. Thriveworks Westborough depression experts will work you or your child to explore many different treatment options, and then usually use a combination of therapies to create success. The journey may not be easy, but you do not have to make it alone. Thriveworks Westborough depression counselors will be with you every step of the way.
