We take our children to their annual physicals and check-ups. We take vitamins, we exercise, and we (try to) eat right. But do we devote the same time and energy to taking care of our mental health?
Our mental health is just as important as our physical health and affects every part of our daily lives. Think about it: It is very difficult to complete even small tasks when you are feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, or you’re struggling with another difficult emotion. Taking action to preserve our mental health and to confront any mental or emotional challenge that comes our way can help us to better cope with these difficult emotions—and in turn, live an overall better life.
Deciding to pursue counseling can be a very difficult step for some. Others feel more comfortable with the idea of speaking with a psychiatrist or therapist, but struggle to find the time to actually make it happen.
Thriveworks Counseling in Woodbridge, VA strives to help all of these individuals live happy, successful lives. And we do what we can to make the scheduling process more comfortable, as well as more convenient.
In addition to our excellent support staff and caring providers, we have flexible appointment times (including in the evenings and on weekends) as well as online counseling opportunities. If you’d like to secure mental health help, give us a call! We’re happy to assist you and get you booked.
Do I Need Counseling? Reasons to Pursue Counseling
Counseling could be thought of as a check-up for your mental health. It is important to spend time working on your mental health in both times of intense stress, and even when life is going well. People of all ages can benefit from counseling, from those in retirement to those in grade school. Reasons to pursue counseling include:
- Anxiety issues
- Relationship challenges
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Grief and loss
- Problems with a child
- Suspected abuse
- Anger management issues
- Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job
It is impossible to list every reason that individuals, couples, and families seek counseling or psychiatry. The problem that has caused you to seek out information on counseling may have been immediately apparent on this list. Or, maybe your personal challenge isn’t explicitly listed above.
We want to assure you that the counselors at Thriveworks Woodbridge are ready to help you tackle any challenge that is causing you mental and/or emotional distress. The issues we deal with on a daily basis may be so complicated, unique, and personal, it is difficult to sum them up into a bullet point or a few words. Every human is unique, as are their problems.

Should I Speak With a Licensed Psychiatrist at Thriveworks?
If you’ve been dealing with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or another mental health issue, the help you need may be found in the form of psychiatry counseling. Psychiatrists work with those struggling with a wide variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. They are medical doctors who can prescribe medications and evaluate your symptoms both before and during treatment.
In many cases, the physical symptoms of a disorder must be addressed for lasting treatment to occur. Some mental health conditions are the result of biological factors, while others may result in physical symptoms. In either case, a psychiatrist can address those factors during your treatment.
If you’re looking for help with a mental health issue, licensed psychiatrists are standing by at Thriveworks.
