Winston-Salem Counseling and Psychiatry—Therapists in Winston-Salem, NC

When you were a kid, adults would ask you, “What are you going to be when you are all grown up?”

Maybe this prompted you to think about your future career—as a firefighter, a veterinarian, a teacher. Maybe it led to your thinking about what kind of a family you wanted—lots of kids or no kids. Maybe you imagined yourself traveling the world and exploring places you have never been to.

Children often have a strong sense of who they are and what they want. However, as we grow older, these dreams can evolve—and life obstacles can stand in our way.

Creating a happy, healthy life is more easily said than done. Childhood dreams take work to implement. No one is exempt from hardship, pain, and setback. Within these challenges, though, people can still create a meaningful, fulfilling life.

Whether the challenge is personal, professional, and/or relational, the difficulty does not have to define people. And no one has to face the difficult, unpleasant challenges alone. Fortunately, today, many people are reaching out for help and working with a mental health professional.

Thriveworks Counseling in Winston-Salem, NC has counselors, coaches, therapists, psychiatrists, and psychologists who love helping people. Whether they are working with a client to manage symptoms of a mental health condition or to achieve their next career move, our staff cares about every individual who walks through their doors. To schedule an appointment with a mental health counselor of your own, just give our office a call.

How Can Mental Health Services Help Me?

People face a wide variety of challenges within their lives that are unique to their particular situation, but one thing that remains the same is that everybody needs a safe place.

Life can get busy and crazy and overwhelming in an instant, and taking a step back to reflect and breathe feels nearly impossible. However, many people find they are able to do just that with the help of mental health services.

The relationship they establish with their therapist, counselor, or coach often becomes a safe, judgment-free relationship where people can think and process and plan and dream. While reflecting within a safe space, many people find their problems are put into perspective, and courage replaces fear.

If you have never worked with a therapist, counselor, or life coach before, you may wonder what it’s like. Thriveworks Counseling in Winston-Salem, NC gives each client personalized care. But generally speaking, counseling may allow people to think about their challenges, opportunities, strengths, and weaknesses.

Sometimes, clients have a very specific reason for beginning therapy. In other instances, they know they need help but they aren’t sure why or how. Our mental health counselors work with clients who have a wide range of reasons for seeking therapy. Some areas of their expertise include:

  • Psychological testing, which can prove helpful to adults and children alike
  • Marriage tensions, such as infidelity or lack of intimacy
  • Depression, which can be mild or severe
  • Couples and family issues, like behavior problems in kids or disagreements in parenting
  • Anxiety, which can make day to day functioning difficult
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Domestic violence as well as emotional abuse
  • ADHD and other chronic conditions
  • Addiction, alcoholism, and substance abuse
  • Cannabis abuse
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies and behaviors
  • Life coaching as well as career counseling
  • Anger management and stress management
  • Grief, which can completely change life as you know it
  • Sexual issues
  • Major life transitions, like a big move or a new job
  • Career advancement
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Divorce recovery

Do you recognize anything on this list within your own life? The therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, and coaches at Thriveworks are committed to helping their clients regardless of the struggles they face.

Would Psychiatry Counseling Be Right for Me?

If you’re struggling with mood disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, or another mental health concern, you may benefit from psychiatry counseling. A psychiatrist is qualified to diagnose and treat a variety of mental illnesses, emotional disorders, and behavioral problems.

Psychiatrists can perform a series of tests to determine the nature of your mental health condition as well as the best strategy for effective treatment. As medical doctors, they have the ability to prescribe medication to address symptoms or adjust for biological factors that may be contributing to your condition.

If you’re struggling with a mental health condition and don’t know where to turn, virtual psychiatry counseling is available from Thriveworks in Winston-Salem, NC.
