Meet our Counselors
Mental Health Counseling, Therapy, and Life Coaching in Suffolk, VA
Surprises are a normal part of life. No one’s life goes exactly according to plan. Some of these surprises are good and bring unforeseen joy into people’s lives like a new friendship or an unexpected job opportunity. Some of these surprises are harder to swallow. Whether it is a personal or professional disappointment, everyone deals with these unfortunate surprises.
The strange thing about life is that, even though everyone experiences hard times, in the midst of them, life can feel more lonely than ever. Social media can make asking for help or sharing a struggle even harder because people often feel pressure to keep up the appearance that life is always good—all the time. Even when people are able to open up to loved ones, at times, people need more than even loving families or close friends can reasonably offer.
In the midst of hard times, have you ever asked yourself tough questions like… What are realistic next steps in this situation? … Can I trust that person? … Is something bigger happening here that needs my attention?
Have you ever wished someone with experience could guide you along the way?

What Happens during Counseling or Coaching at Thriveworks Suffolk, VA
Our coaches and counselors know that just like everybody experiences challenging life surprises, everybody is a talented, strong person who can set and achieve important life dreams. Thriveworks Suffolk, VA’s counselors love walking with their clients on each individual’s journey of healing and discovery.

When someone decides to pursue counseling, they dedicate specific time toward exploring their emotions and thoughts with a trained professional’s help.
Therapists often begin their time with new clients by learning about specific problems that client is facing and the reasons that client sought help. Counselors may inquire about a client’s career, family, relationships, physical health, professional experience, spirituality, or mental health.
Sometimes, therapists have their clients rate their current life situation: 0-10. If clients give themselves a 10, that means they are functioning exactly as they want to be in that particular area of life. In contrast, a 0 means a client is possibly dealing with a major life trauma or mental health problem that makes daily life extremely difficult.
Thriveworks Suffolk, VA’s counselors then use this introduction and rating to tailor individualized treatment for each client. Treatment plans, therefore, look different for each person.
