Therapy and Coaching Available in Sandy Springs — Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling

Thriveworks began as a response to the question, “Why does deciding to pursue therapy and finding a counselor have to be so difficult?”

It shouldn’t be (difficult). Thriveworks was built on the understanding that while some already balanced, happy and successful people look to counseling and coaching for continued personal and professional growth, many people begin their search during emotionally trying times, often after days, weeks or even years of dealing with their pain on their own — often keeping their problems a secret from friends and family.

For someone who resembles the latter scenario, even just the thought of pursuing therapy can be overwhelming and scary. You do not know where to turn, who to trust, or what first step to take. Perhaps you have grown up with negative stereotypes of therapy and counseling. There is no need to feel anxiety, shame, or trepidation about pursuing counseling.

Think of therapy is similar to your annual medical check-up. Most of us take our vitamins, visit our doctor for a physical, and try to get regular exercise and rest. Visiting a counselor or therapist is similar. Our mental health needs to be monitored and examined as well. Having peace and mental balance affects every aspect of our lives. If we do not have equilibrium, it can be difficult to complete even ordinary tasks.

Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling recognizes how trying this process can be for many, so we’ve created a therapy culture that aims to provide you with the care you need, when you need it, and for the entire progression from initial phone call to your first session to be as simple and as encouraging as possible.

Why Pursue Counseling?

There are many reasons to seek counseling. There could be a tragic and unexpected event in your family, with your child, or in your relationship. Perhaps you are looking for a life coach and want to explore different ways to improve your life.

Some common scenarios include:

  • After the passing of a loved one, you’re in pain and need help confronting the loss so you can move forward
  • Previous problems, mistakes and regrets crowd your mind, making it difficult for you to focus at work or be successful in your current relationships
  • You and your family have recently moved and your child isn’t having the easiest time adjusting to the new school
  • You and your significant other are considering marriage, but your officiate wants you to seek premarital counseling before sending out any “Save the Date” postcards
  • Your work leaves you emotionally drained at the end of the day and you dread your morning drive to the office

Several or none of the above scenarios might be familiar to you, but in any case, our counselors and coaches have had great success treating a wide spectrum of issues.

Sessions within 24 Hours

Some counselors think that having a waiting list is a sign of professional success. We see it as a sign of a poorly managed practice.

Like we said before, we want you to find the care you need, when you need it. When you call Thriveworks, one of our friendly scheduling specialists will set you up with a counseling or coaching session for the same week, if not within 24 hours (the latter is the case for most of our first-time clients).

Extended Weekend and Evening Hours

Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling therapists and coaches are available at times that fit your schedule; we offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments. Our current hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Even if you need an appointment outside of our posted schedule, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our team has been known to schedule clients outside of our already extended hours.

Concierge-Level Access to Your Coach or Therapist

Every Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling client receives the phone number and email address of his or her therapist or life coach, and has an open invitation to reach out to him or her — even without an appointment.
