Marietta, GA Counseling – Therapy, Life Coaching Mental Health Services
When considering seeing a counselor or a coach for the first time, the terms alone can put a knot in some people’s stomachs. Marriage counseling. Anxiety therapy. Major depressive disorder. Addiction counseling. Executive coaching.
We don’t want there to be a problem, so we ignore it. We think if we don’t validate the negative feelings and thoughts that they’ll simply go away or not cause too much trouble. We tell ourselves: “If I ignore the problem, maybe it was never there to begin with.”
We all know how well that works.
The truth is that acknowledging and understanding what you are experiencing are the first steps toward recovery and toward thriving in life. If you’re familiar with even the pop culture references to 12-step programs, you’ll know that denial is part of getting better, but you can’t stay there.
Denying the very real struggles in your day-to-day life have any influence on your wellbeing is only useful if your plan is to exist in a constant state of discomfort and dissatisfaction for the rest of your life.
That’s why Thriveworks Marietta Counseling exists: to help you break out of that denial and into the here and now — the place where your problems exist and the only battleground where you’ll have the opportunity to defeat them.

You’ve spent days — if not weeks, months or years — going through periods of pain.

Who Benefits From Counseling and Coaching?
Contrary to what some might believe, many already successful people continually benefit from their counselor or coach.
Let’s consider this from the perspective of another aspect of our overall health — physical wellness. Professional athletes are able to perform at the level that they do specifically because of the attention they give to their abilities and their shortcomings. They do this through consistent practice and by consulting with medical professionals.
If you want your mind and emotions to operate at their best, attention is necessary. This is why counseling and coaching is so impactful for all kinds of people, regardless of their current emotional state or socioeconomic status.
You’re invited to thrive in life!”

There are so many reasons why people pursue and benefit from a relationship with a Thriveworks counselor or coach, but at the center of each of these is “balance.” Whether it’s addiction, infidelity, anxiety, stress, depression, grief or perfectionism, achieving and working toward balance is the key to thriving in life.

- Issues with effective communication
The issue or challenge you’re facing is unique in its own way, which is why our counselors and coaches customize their treatment plans for each individual’s specific needs, but know that many people have already experienced relief and success over similar circumstances. You can too.
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.
We’ve already explained our “no waiting list” policy, that our clinicians accept most major insurance plans and have sessions open this week, if not within the next 24 hours — it’s our way of ensuring that you get the expert care you need, when you need it. But what you may not know is that Thriveworks only hires the best, most qualified clinicians we can find.
Our therapists and coaches are leaders in the field. As such, they have appeared in a number of trusted news outlets such as CNN, Mashable, The Boston Globe, Prevention, Counseling Today, Chicago Tribune, The Journal of Mental Health Counseling, Bleacher Report and many more. Let us put our skill and expertise to work in your life.
Our office hours are from 8 a.m to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. If there is a time outside of these hours that would better suit your lifestyle, don’t hesitate to let us know. Our clinicians are often willing to work with you even outside of our already-extended office hours.
