Thriveworks Lemon Slice

Psychiatry, Counseling, Therapy, and Life Coaching in Blacksburg, VA

Daily life, at times, can feel like you are spinning on a hamster wheel: always running but never stopping or getting anywhere. Maybe every day feels like the last with breakfast, work, lunch, work, errands, dinner, more work, sleep…the cycle never ends. Maybe time for friends, adventure, hobbies has vanished. Maybe you feel like you are losing your sense of self, and the daily grind has taken its toll.

At other times, life is not mundane and boringly predictable; it is out of control. An unforeseen crisis, diagnosis, or trauma can strike from out of the blue. Life can feel erratic and frightening. Maybe infidelity has been discovered in your relationship. Maybe insomnia has crept up and made life harder than it needs to be. Maybe you are suspicious that your child has been abused. Many circumstances in life can feel overwhelming and impossible.

Can you relate? Whether daily life has become drab and dull or whether a hardship has overwhelmed you, one thing is for sure—adversity is a normal part of life. Often, people’s response to this adversity is to isolate themselves. People may think, “everyone else’s life is great. No one would understand.” Or they may tell themselves, “I don’t even know whom I can trust or where I could start.” These are common and understandable thoughts. The reality, however, is that no one’s life is perfect, and help is available.

That is why Thriveworks Counseling in Blacksburg, VA exists: our mission is to help clients overcome life’s challenges and thrive. Reaching out takes courage, but for many people, starting therapy with a life coach, counselor, or online therapist was the first step toward improved mental health.
Setting Up Time with a Life Coach or Counselor

When life feels dull and draining or when life feels chaotic and overwhelming, one of the first things people tend to stop doing is taking time for reflection and self-care. Unfortunately, self-care and reflection are often the first steps toward healing, regardless of the problem. When people pay attention to their mind and emotions—to understand what they are thinking and feeling—they can understand the problem they face. The more they understand, the less scary it may feel. Then, people can discern a path forward and make necessary changes. A skilled therapist can guide the process of reflection and often make it more effective.

Thriveworks Counseling Blacksburg

not what I expected

I found the requirement for giving credit card information over the phone to be a little distressing. I wasn't given a very good reason for needing this information before scheduling an appointment. I was also told I needed to pay a $99 fee to avoid cancellation fees IF I needed to ever cancel without 24 hours notice. I found the scheduling staff to be a little pushy and I was already very anxious about scheduling an appointment. I felt like the focus was more on collecting fees than helping people in need. They also don't take any form of medicaid. I also don't like being required to provide my name and email address in order to be able to post a review.
