Counseling and Coaching in Austin – Anxiety, Life Coaching, Depression

Every life has its seasons: ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and bad days, summers and winters. If you’re looking for a counselor or coach in Austin, Texas, and found this page, there’s a chance that you’re in one of those cold winter seasons.

Yes, many people see a counselor or coach for continued personal growth and professional development, but there are many out there who don’t begin looking for help until they’re knee-deep in the snowdrifts of life’s inevitable challenges. If this is you, and you’re suffering, know that trying to brave the not-so-fair weather alone is likely prolonging your hardship.

Perhaps you’re currently going through a scenario similar to one of the following:

  • You’ve experienced a death in the family and don’t know how to go on without your loved one
  • You’re professional life has ceased to interest you, and you need help with motivation
  • Your once happy marriage has taken a turn toward poor communication and resentment
  • You and your family have moved to a new city, and your child isn’t adjusting to the new school so well
  • You’re tired all the time but have difficulty falling asleep at night, and instead watch episode after episode of various TV shows

If you’re currently experiencing the biting frost of an emotional winter, it’s time to get warm. For many who are looking for a little bit of relieving warmth, however, this can be a challenge. You call therapy office after therapy office leaving voicemails, hoping someone with available appointment slots accepts your insurance plan.

At Thriveworks Austin Therapy, we believe that relief should come now, at the moment that you begin to look for it. That’s why when you call us, we make sure someone is available to pick up the phone — 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year — and find an appointment within the same week, if not within 24 hours of your call.

We invite you to thrive in life!

Regardless of how challenging things may appear, we have someone on staff that can help. Our coaches and counselors are fully licensed and experienced mental health professionals who are ready to put their knowledge to work for you.

There’s no limit to the reasons why people look for a professional counselor or coach for help and guidance, but in short, the goal is to achieve balance.

While popular culture OBSESSES over external appearances, much less public attention is given to positive mental-health related change. Worse yet, some even carry the false notion that it’s somehow shameful to see a coach or counselor.

Reaching out to readily available help isn’t shameful — it’s smart. What’s tragic, however, is going through a difficult period alone, when there are experts nearby who want to help.

A Thriveworks Austin Therapy coach or counselor will teach you how to:

  1. Set and achieve goals
  2. Work through challenging relationships and life issues
  3. Pursue inner strength and personal growth

Just like we should be pursuing physical wellness through routine exercise, plenty of sleep and nutritious eating habits, our mental wellbeing benefits greatly from attention, care and professional guidance.

As a sample, here are a few of the reasons why people work with Thriveworks Austin Therapy:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • ADHD counseling
  • Child therapy
  • Suspected abuse in a child
  • Psychiatric testing
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.”

Thriveworks Counseling was founded in 2008 with the goal of helping individuals, couples and families dramatically improve their lives, careers and relationships. We’ve grown a lot since those days in our windowless, one-room office in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to become what we are today: a growing national franchise with the same mission today as the day we started.

With great pride we offer our therapy and coaching services in Austin. Our clinicians are leaders in the field and have been featured in trusted news outlets, such as, Mashable, The Cult of Mac, Bleacher Report, The Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Counseling Today, CNN, Prevention, Newsday, AJC, The Monitor, and more.

Major Insurance Plans Accepted

By Accepting major insurance plans, we make high-quality counseling care affordable in Austin, Texas.”

We find it strange how few therapy offices are interested in serving their “valued” clients by accepting their insurance provider’s reimbursements. In contrast to the norm, we accept many (if not most) major insurance plans including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, Tricare, Humana and more.

Appointments Available Within 24 Hours

At Thriveworks, we’re redefining the term ‘customer service’ in counseling. While many practices fail to even answer their telephone, and have waiting lists that are weeks or months long (usually due to therapists “part time” schedules), Thriveworks Austin Therapy offers its first-time clients appointments within the same week of their call, if not within 24 hours!

Extended Evening and Weekend Hours

Thriveworks Austin Therapy offers session times that suit your schedule, with appointments available during the daytime, evening and on weekends. Our current hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Even if you need an appointment outside of our posted schedule, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our team has been known to schedule clients outside of our already extended hours.

Concierge-Level Access to Your Counselor or Coach

All Thriveworks Austin Therapy subscribers receive the phone number and email address to their clinician with the open invitation to reach out at any time — even without an appointment.

e trauma I was struck with when I experienced severe loss of a loved one in 2016. Linda was and is present, intelligent, professional, human, warm and kind and at every session she has offered me practical solutions to face my life and my day to day activities. I highly recommend her. She Is so good it is very hard to get an appointment with her but if you can get one keep it. She is fabulous and will heal your spirit and soul in a safe and loving place. I love her strength more than anything and her optimism that anyone can get to a better place and not be stuck in pain and hopelessness. She is healing my heart and I feel like I have found a person who truly cares. This is a very good place.

I am gonna cry as I write this review... I have been working with Linda M. since I was married to my abusive e...Read more

x husband and through my single time and my time meeting and marrying my current very wonderful husband. She has pushed me to be the very best person I can be and literally saved my life on several occasions. I'm moving to VA so I can't see Linda anymore and I'm telling you, this is my hardest goodbye. This woman is beyond amazing. She has forced me to take a good hard look at myself and work on everything: anxiety, borderline and PTSD to make me be a better person. You CANNOT go wrong with Linda. It's amazing how much one person and one session can change your life. I've tried therapy before, many times, with no luck until I got dragged to Thriveworks by someone close to me who wanted therapy to fix me! Well it didn't "fix me" it made me a totally new person. A happier, more confident person willing to take on the world. I even wanted Linda to come to my wedding, but knew she couldn't as she is very professional and this is against policy. But I would have had her there in a heart beat!
