“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
– Christopher Reeve

The providers at Thriveworks McDonough have the skills, the experience, and the dedication to help you overcome the obstacles in your life. They’ve seen firsthand just how beneficial mental health care is and they’re eager for you to experience these benefits yourself. They know they can make a difference in your life through in-person counseling or online therapy—all you have to do is let them in.

Overcoming Life’s Obstacles with a Mental Health Professional

A mental health professional’s primary job is to assist his or her clients in overcoming the challenge(s) they face and living an overall healthier, happier life. These challenges vary among us, but there are some common issues that therapists and counselors address:

  • Harmful thoughts/feelings
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship problems
  • Adjusting to major life transitions

These are just a few issues therapists and counselors help their clients work through. In any regard, your provider at Thriveworks McDonough can help you find health, happiness, and healing. Let’s take a closer look at just how our providers can help you. Envision the following:

  1. You and your spouse have had a rough few months. It seems like every day you’re getting into a new explosive fight—about where to go for dinner tonight, whose turn it is to take out the trash and do the dishes, when to put the kids to bed, and on and on. Now, instead of repeating this harmful cycle, or allowing it to have irreversible effects on your marriage, meet with a marriage therapist. They can help you address any suppressed feelings that might be leading to these arguments, learn healthier communication strategies, and more.
  2. You’ve lived in the same little town your entire life—that is, until now. You finally decided it was time for a new adventure. You’ve been excited ever since you had this revelation, but you’re also feeling extremely nervous and anxious about this whole move. The doubts start to creep in: What if I hate it in this new city? What if I don’t make any friends? What if I can’t find a job? Instead of allowing these doubts to rule your life, meet with a counselor or therapist and correct your negative thoughts. They will help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and adopt more positive ones that will make for a much healthier, happier you.
  3. Your family and friends have always known you to be the happy-go-lucky one; the one that’s always cracking jokes and lifting everyone else’s spirits. Recently, though, you haven’t been cracking many jokes. Lifting everyone else’s spirits? You can’t even smile yourself; you’re so unhappy. You don’t know why you’re experiencing these significant changes, but you don’t like it. And people are starting to take notice. They’re starting to worry. Instead of sitting idly by, worrying about these changes, see a therapist. They can help you explore these new feelings, understand the cause of these changes, and help you return to the happy person you miss.

You won’t be disappointed

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jaquita for family/couples counseling and she was wonderful! She gave us homework assignments to complete, and we also had some very innovative in session assignments. A straight shooter, but very respectful. She’s just awesome!
Thriveworks Counseling McDonough

Professional and Innovative

I just want to give a review of Ms. Jaquita Shorts. My husband and I met with her for several months between May and September for family/marriage counseling. Ms. Shorts gave us homework assignments and in session assignments that made counseling more comfortable. She was also great at drilling down on issues to discover root issues. I definitely suggest giving her a try!

I needed someone to talk to and Keira was a great listener! She was patient and very kind. She didn't rush me I felt very comfortable with her. Very calming environment, clean and smelled great! I have told family members, and they will be going to her next. When I left her office I felt such relief and peace in my heart. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a kind, and open counselor.

****EYE OPENER****

Victoria gave me some insight of how I look at some things. It's crazy, that answers are there, just never thought about how deep the root is that started most of the issues I have faced. I wish I could Rate higher than 5.
