Columbia MD Counseling, Psychiatry—Howard County Mental Health Help

Life is a journey, not a race. But many times, it feels like a race you just cannot win. It is hard to make strides at work, hard to have meaningful relationships, and hard to focus on improving yourself. In all the hustle and bustle of life, we often do not have the chance (or create opportunities) to really connect with others. We may talk, but never really listen or get past topics like the weather and daily events.

This is where a Thriveworks counselor, psychiatrist, psychologist, or coach can help you create the life you really want. Counselors and coaches are there to help you process your emotions and help you define your goals in life. We can help you identify barriers to progress, and establish new, healthy patterns. And we have both in-person counseling and online counseling appointments available.

Do I Need Counseling?

Here at Thriveworks Counseling Columbia, we believe that every individual can find value in working with a skilled, caring mental health professional. Now, your exact path in counseling and the benefits you discover will depend on your unique situation: the challenges you might be facing as well as your goals in life. Here are a few issues your counselor can help you manage or overcome:

This is not a comprehensive list. Instead, it mentions a few common issues that Thriveworks counselors see in counseling. If you are experiencing one of these common problems, consider scheduling an appointment so that we can help you overcome it as soon as possible.

Whether you’re looking for a child or teen therapist, marriage counselor, anxiety therapist, or depression therapist, Thriveworks can help. If you are experiencing a different issue, our suggestion remains: consider making an appointment with a counselor, as they have the expertise and experience to guide you toward a better life.

How Can a Life Coach Help Me?

Most of us are familiar with counseling and therapy for problems such as depression. Coaching, however, is not mental health counseling. The purpose and mission of your life coach is to empower you and help you make important decisions that will lead you to a happier, more successful life. Now, if a mental health issue arrives in the course of the coaching relationship, your coach will be able to refer you to another provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.

There are many different types of coaching, including life coaching, health coaching, business coaching, and mentoring. At Thriveworks Counseling Columbia, we will tailor the process for each individual client, and match you with a provider that suits your needs and goals for coaching.

Your Thriveworks coach can serve as a listening ear, a trusted confidant, and someone that can give you advice from an outside perspective. Problems or issues that we have been struggling with for a long time may get resolved by simply having a fresh look. For many, their coaching session becomes the part of their week they look forward to the most.

Coaching is designed to enrich your life. However, the process will not always be easy. Making real changes is not always a smooth process. We can help you identify harmful relationships and destructive patterns. We will help you make the hard decisions and walk with you through the process.

Meet With an Experienced Psychiatrist Online

Many clients dealing with mental and emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety find the help they need in the form of psychiatry counseling. Psychiatrists have considerable training when it comes to both the physical and mental sides of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders.

Psychiatrists can perform a full range of psychological and medical tests to determine the root cause of your mental health issue and the best path towards recovery. This can take the form of psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of both.

If you’re struggling with a mental or emotional issue, psychiatry counseling might be a great fit for you. Reach out to make an online appointment with a Thriveworks psychiatrist in Columbia, MD.

She helped the light shine in!

I struggled with self loathing and dark attitudes about myself for many years. My attitudes were affecting my relationships on a variety of levels. I felt like a failure. I was afraid to take my life but I didn’t want to live any more. My wife suggested I get counseling, but I resisted thinking I could fix me. It did not work. Helene Diop took me through a year of counseling via FaceTime that finally shed light on my dark experience. She helped me put my life in perspective and actively illuminated my understanding of why I felt the way I did. She provided clear, fruitful strategies for thinking that have changed my life. She, truly, helped the light shine in during my darkest hour! I’m a happy man, today!
