West Springfield Therapy: Care for Your Mental Health

We live in such a fast-paced world it can be hard to slow down and check-in with ourselves. When we feel anxiety or stress, we tend to combat it in our own ways, instead of exploring therapy or online counseling. What is the purpose of therapy after all? Shouldn’t I just put my head down and push through my problems? Your mental health concerns are valid and speaking with a therapist can help you overcome day to day problems and set goals for your life.

Therapists in West Springfield, MA, are available and highly skilled at talking with you about these very common and yet acute mental health concerns that require and deserve your attention. Depression can arise slowly and affects all aspects of your life. Talk with a therapist and visit our online counseling services before the weight adds up.

How do I find a good therapist? You can contact our offices and schedule online therapy sessions with counselors and become familiar with how we work and what you can expect. Our valued and diverse therapists will listen to you and help you navigate options for your mental health. We look forward to hearing from you!

How Can Therapy Help?

Often times we sweep our concerns under the rug and let feelings gnaw at us and grow estranged from our core of sense of self-worth. Anxiety and depression can mount from an array of stressors and hinder you in your goals and responsibilities.

When it comes to your mental and emotional health, it is vital that you address any problems head-on. Unfortunately, you can’t just hope that your challenges will resolve themselves. You have to find a way to feel your feelings, manage your stress, and address other challenges that come your way. Fortunately, if you’re in need of some help, our therapists at Thriveworks West Springfield are patient and professional, offering a variety of paths forward. Contact our online counseling services and explore ways to begin the conversation about your mental health.

Counseling has to do with intuition, with work on oneself, with the quietness of one’s mind, and the openness of one’s heart.” –Ram Dass

For some people, addressing and solving their challenges is a piece-of-cake. For others, though, it’s more difficult. There is no shame in needing help, so please, if you are one of these people who could benefit from a therapist’s guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out. Thriveworks West Springfield Counseling has therapists as well as life coaches and psychologists on our team who would love nothing more than to join you on your mental health journey. Book an appointment online or call our office to schedule an appointment and hear more about our services. We look forward to talking to you.

Who Benefits from Counseling? Would I?

Counseling can benefit any and every person. Now, some people might “need” it more than others, such as those who are dealing with a mental illness, like:

  • Mood Disorders: Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Postpartum Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic attacks and panic Disorder, Phobias, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, Eating Disorders
  • Trauma: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Acute Stress Disorder, Schizophrenia, Personality Disorder, Addiction, and Substance Abuse, Psychotic disorders

These are a few of the most common mental illnesses, but there are many others, too. If you are struggling with symptoms of a mental illness, you likely need some form of mental health treatment and therapy proves to be a great option for most psychiatric illnesses.

Therapy, counseling, and life coaching can help people who aren’t dealing with a mental illness, too. For example, they can help people with the following challenges:

  • Stress and anger management
  • Relationship issues such as family dynamics, marriage and couples counseling and divorce
  • General discontentment, stress related to physical health and pain
  • Lack of success, fulfillment, career and wellness goals, body image and weight loss struggles
  • Coping with grief and loss; dealing with the death of a loved one
  • Poor communication
  • LQBTQ issues
  • Mental health issues resulting from racial discrimination
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and asperges in adults and children
  • ADHD related issues in adults and children
  • Addiction and substance abuse counseling
  • Loneliness and isolated related to social distancing or other
  • Covid-19 related anxiety, anger, grief, and loss

If you are dealing with any of the mental illnesses or other mental health problems that we’ve listed, know that Thrivework’s therapists, coaches, and counselors in West Springfield Counseling can help. We have an experienced team of skilled, licensed professionals who truly care about every individual they work with. And they would love to help you, too.

What Does Counseling or Therapy Involve?

It involves you and a therapist communicating and working together. It also involves courage on your part. It is not easy addressing mental health concerns because we are often told to ignore them, push through them, or compartmentalize them. Therapy sessions can help you focus on healthy practices and self-care while providing advice and concrete plans to help you move forward with more in-depth knowledge of yourself and your mental health.

Often a wide range of approaches will be discussed in order to best suit your needs. What techniques are used in family therapy? How do they differ from therapy designed to treat depression? What risk factors should I consider for myself? Will my therapy be discreet and conducted in a safe space? At Thriveworks West Springfield we offer face to face therapy as well as online therapy. Through these services, we can begin to treat your specific mental health concerns. Telehealth and teletherapy services can help you tackle a large spectrum of mental health afflictions including depression, sexual assault, separation anxiety disorder, work-related anxiety, and social anxieties.

The work that you put into your life is enormous and we often disregard ourselves in the process. Speaking with one of our therapists will involve candor, respect, trust, and reflection. These are positives moves in the right direction and we look forward to helping you develop the peace and health you seek. Together we can talk and listen and prepare a game plan that works for you.
