Experience effective therapy with a counselor or therapist in Amherst

For a kid, anxiety can be the stomach ache before school when homework isn’t done or the prospect of an embarrassing gym class. For others, a painful breakup can cause hopelessness at the idea of braving the (socially distanced!) dating landscape. Or maybe everything is under control and you’re breezing through projects and partnerships — but an ill-timed or poorly-framed comment from a colleague or loved one can send you into a spiral of doubt.

From making ends meet to balancing friendships to picking yourself up after any kind of personal or professional loss, our lives are constantly requiring us to deal with stress. The added roller coaster of global events from the pandemic to climate change can leave many wondering where to turn. But when trauma arises or even when the daily accumulation of triggers seems to put peace of mind out of reach, a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist can help you find it.

Solutions for Every Mental Health Need

Are you the kind of person who always puts yourself last? Maybe you have spent decades caring for others, addressing your family’s needs, and ignoring your own. Or perhaps you are simply lonely and need to make a connection. From in-person counseling to remote therapy, there’s always a way to put regular, insightful help into your schedule. And who knows? Managing your stress may be the first step to discovering time you didn’t know you had to start shaping the life you truly dream of.

We want to be the listening ear, the companion and the consultant that you need. Whatever you are facing we are available for you. Whether virtually or in person, start a conversation today with a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist who can help you get past fears and anxieties and face challenges on solid footing. Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Amherst is just a phone call away. Call us at (413) 634-4805 or book an appointment online.

What Can I Expect from an In-Person or Online Therapy Session?

No two people’s needs are identical, regardless of their diagnosis. It is important for you to find a therapist, counselor or life coach who you can trust and who you feel understands your needs.

Counseling sessions will be tailored to benefit you. Your therapist will discuss with you the challenges you face as well as your goals for counseling. Once an understanding of your individual need is established, they will design a treatment plan specifically for you.

In some cases, your therapist may refer you to a specialist to help. Our network of mental health professionals within our offices will help to simplify this process for you.

We also provide different session types to accommodate your needs or restrictions. Many people are more comfortable with traditional, in-person, face-to-face counseling. We have offices throughout Western Massachusetts that are open for appointments in a safe and socially-distanced setting.

In addition, we provide various forms of remote therapy including telehealth services where you can meet with your therapist from the comfort of your own home.

Whether you prefer one or the other or a combination of both, therapists in Amherst, MA are available and would like to provide you with the safest and most comfortable therapy for your needs.
