Imagine this: This year has been your best year in a long time. You’re on the brink of a job promotion and you have a hunch that your boyfriend is going to propose in the coming weeks. Recent conversations about your future tell you so, and you can hardly contain your excitement. It’s all you’ve ever wanted. But then, everything changes. Instead of getting that job promotion, you’re let go from the company. Your boss tells you that you’re talented and valuable to the team but they just can’t afford your position right now. Additionally, your partner does a 180 and tells you that he needs some space—he’s feeling overwhelmed with the fast pace of your relationship. You feel confused, saddened, and overwhelmed by these sudden revelations.
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” –Sigmund Freud
Life doesn’t always go as planned. We don’t ask for the stress or the frustration or the other difficult emotions we move through. And we certainly don’t ask for disappointing surprises at work or in our relationships. Still, they happen. And we have to find a way to deal with them. Instead of trying to accomplish this alone, consider working with a psychologist. These professionals are trained and equipped to help with a wide variety of life problems.
The psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling in Westborough, MA can help you work through tough emotions, manage stress, address problems in your relationship, and more. They have experiencing helping many different people with a range of problems, and they can help you too.

How Can a Worcester Psychologist Help Me?
We have a dedicated team of mental health professionals, including counselors, therapists, life coaches, and psychologists, all of whom are here to help and support you. They truly care about your wellbeing and they dedicate each day to helping people just like you live better. As you know, the challenges that we encounter in life change on a regular basis. One day, we might be facing stressful circumstances at work and the next we might be fighting with our significant other. In any case, if you’re open to talking to us, our psychologists can help you find a solution the problem at hand.
Your counseling experience will depend on your specific needs, goals, and other unique factors. Your Thriveworks psychologist will get to know you, the identified problem(s), and then they will design your treatment plan. Here are a few challenges you might consider working through with our psychologists:
- Stress, at work and elsewhere: Stress is no stranger. Many of us experience some level of stress on a day-to-day basis, especially at work. Stress is a normal reaction to perceived threats—there’s no getting rid of stress, but there are stress management and stress reduction techniques. If you’re experiencing an overwhelming amount of stress and you don’t know what to do with it, consider working with one of our psychologists who can teach you about these stress management practices.
- Problems in your relationship: Another common source of stress is conflict in our relationships. We run into problems in our relationships, from jealousy to trust issues, infidelity, disagreements in parenting, and so on. Sometimes, we struggle to see eye to eye or get on the same page again. Fortunately, a psychologist can help you do so.
- Mental health conditions: Based on research from Our World in Data, 792 million people across the world in 2017 suffered with a mental illness. Likely, you or someone you know have developed or will develop a mental illness, be it depression, anxiety, or another. If you do exhibit symptoms, it’s important that you talk to a mental health professional, such as a psychologist at Thriveworks Westborough. We can assess your symptoms, offer diagnosis, and come up with a treatment plan that will help you manage the illness.
Our team understands the importance of a personalized treatment plan. We will come up with a plan based on the needs you identify and those we discuss. This ensures optimal success in counseling.
