Alexandria Counseling, Psychiatry—Mental Health Care in Franconia

Life can be hard to understand sometimes. As humans, we are always trying to make sense of what is going on around us, but that is typically quite a difficult task. If your life is not making sense to you lately, the team here at Thriveworks Alexandria would be happy to help.

The need for therapy can often arise simply out of not taking enough time each day for yourself. Between the responsibilities you have at work and those you have at home, there might not be time for you to “get away” and think about what it is that you need to do for yourself.

Therapy is the perfect opportunity to do so. You will have the opportunity to sit down with a qualified and experienced counselor or therapist to discuss things that are important to you. If you have been searching for counseling in Alexandria, we are here to help.

How Can Therapy or Counseling Help Me?

There is an incredibly long list of challenges that can be dealt with using counseling, therapy, and/or life coaching. Among the many points on that list are:

The counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches at Thriveworks Alexandria are experts in mental health. They have the skills, training, and experience to help you overcome the above challenges as well as other difficulties that may confront you in life.

Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatry looks at mental and emotional disorders from a medical standpoint. Psychiatrists have received a medical degree and gone on to work for years in a psychiatric residency. This means they are highly qualified to diagnose a wide variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders.

Diagnosis of mental disorders sometimes requires psychological testing and an examination of physical symptoms. Psychiatrists are qualified to carry out both activities and can also prescribe medications. They also are trained to conduct psychotherapy, which involves discussing a client’s moods, thoughts, and behaviors. Psychiatrists can use this information to help clients identify their impact on daily life and learn effective coping strategies.

If you think you would benefit from speaking with a psychiatrist, then consider scheduling an online appointment with a qualified Thriveworks psychiatrist today.

patient parent

★★★★★
Lolita is a very thoughtful therapist. She also has a good understanding of children as she worked with my son at the ages of 15 & 16. She was an advocate for him, and she was eager to work with him in goal-setting, which my husband and I appreciate very much. We may continue to seek our her assistance in the future should our needs change. Thank you for all of your help.

Can’t thank you enough

★★★★★
I was skeptical at first to open up to a complete stranger and express my problems and thoughts but Gelila made me feel completely comfortable within the first couple of sessions. She is very kind, a good listener, and extremely helpful. I have been talking to her for a couple of months and I feel instantly relieved of stress after our sessions. I can’t thank her enough for helping me out through tough times.

Rebecca Fry is amazing

★★★★★
Rebecca has been my therapist for almost a decade and I can not recommend her enough. She is thoughtful and caring, while also great at challenging and giving direct recommendations on how to deal with issues. She even stayed with me after I moved out of the area and worked to figure out a remote option. She has worked with me through many issues and remained a valuable resource I can rely on.

Rebecca is incredible!

★★★★★
I can't speak highly enough of Rebecca Fry - she is compassionate, patient, attentive, and encouraging. She is celebratory of growth and honest in her feedback without ever being critical or judgmental. For someone who was fearful of entering therapy, she embraced me with warmth and understanding. She has helped me tremendously by equipping me with practical coping mechanisms that are manageable and realistic but challenge unhealthy habits when necessary. On top of her professionalism - Rebecca is so easy to relate to and never makes me feel like I have anything to be ashamed of. She cares deeply for her patients and wants to help them lead healthier lives. She is an absolute treasure and I can't recommend her highly enough!!
