College Park, MD Mental Health Counseling – Anxiety and Depression
Everyone lives with unfulfilled dreams and goals. Sometimes, the mundane rhythm of life lulls people into complacency: wake up, exercise, eat breakfast, drop off the kids, go to work, pick up the kids, go to the grocery store, make dinner, watch TV, go to bed, repeat, repeat, repeat. Time for adventure, hobbies, and connection is lost in the routine.
Sometimes, life’s hardships derail people’s dreams. Depression and anxiety can make everyday functioning difficult, much less pursuing a life goal. Addiction or other mental health disorders can steal a person’s dream life.
But what if these life goals were not lost forever? What if you could overcome life’s challenges to live a fulfilled life? What if you could thrive?
Thriveworks College Park, MD counselors help people discover a path back to their life goals and dreams. Therapy at Thriveworks College Park, MD offers treatment that is tailored to each, individual client. We partner with our clients to find a way for them to overcome mental health issues and thrive.

Help for Struggling Families, Loved Ones, and Relationships
Often times, mental health issues that affect one person also affect their loved ones. Do you relate to any of these situations?
- You worry about your teenager. You know it is normal for teens to distance themselves from their parents, but your child’s behavior feels extreme. You have a nagging feeling that something might be wrong.
- Your spouse has cheated. Rebuilding the marriage feels overwhelming and impossible, but you are not sure you want a divorce either.
- Your sibling is struggling with an addiction. You want to help, but you do not want to enable the addiction.
Therapy at Thriveworks College Park, MD has helped many people navigate these tricky situations with their families and friends. Even if your loved one does not want to attend counseling with you, know that it is always ok to reach out for help.
Taking the First Step
Many people feel nervous when they think about scheduling a counseling appointment for the first time. Unfortunately, negative stereotypes can lead people to believe they must handle their problems by themselves. In this view, asking for help means weaknesses, and people can feel embarrassed when they are just getting the help they need.
Before scheduling an appointment, it is also normal to feel fear. Therapy often challenges people to make needed changes. Even though Thriveworks counselors offer lots of support and help along the way, change is hard and can be scary.
It take courage and strength to overcome social stereotypes or fear and start the process of building a happier, healthier life. Thriveworks therapists understand how hard this can be, and they have helped many people live a more fulfilled life. Our counselors know that many people look back on their decision to pursue counseling and are so glad they made that first step.
