Thriveworks Lemon Slice

Counseling, Therapy, and Coaching in Boston, MA—Mental Health Services

Most of us would not ignore a physical pain that does not go away. But many of us do ignore emotional pain that does not go away. For some reason, we often put our emotional and psychological health on the back burner. We experience pain, loss, frustration, anxiety, turmoil, and upheaval, but do not take the time to deal with the emotions and feelings that these experiences bring.

“Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away

and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth

in your pain, but only if it’s first brought out into the open.”

–Steven Aitchison

Counseling provides time set aside to deal with and give respect to your innermost thoughts and feelings. Thriveworks Boston coaches, psychologists, and therapists are prepared to help you deal with any problem or issue you may bring to our office. You do not need to be afraid that your issue or secret will shock us or, on the other hand, that we will judge you for it. We are experienced professionals, trained to help you deal with the issues that you deal with privately. Whether you are seeking counseling for yourself as an individual, your marriage, your child, or your family, and in-person or online counseling therapy, we are ready and able to help. Call (617) 671-1264 to schedule today.

Why Seek Counseling or Coaching?

Perhaps you have had thoughts about starting counseling for weeks, or even years—there has been an issue in your life that you have always wished you could discuss and explore fully but have never taken the time to do so. Now is the time. You deserve to spend some time on yourself. Creating the optimal mental health for yourself is beneficial to those around you as well. When you are working from a positive place, it is easier to interact with those around you with kindness and patience. There are many specific reasons to seek counseling as well. These may include:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Couples counseling
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Problems with a child
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues

If you were not immediately able to place yourself into one of these categories, no need to worry. It is impossible to list all of the reasons that prompt individuals, couples, and families to pursue therapy. Whatever you are dealing with, we can deal with. Thriveworks is a safe and open environment without judgment or fear. Every person is unique, as is their innermost worries, fears, goals, and dreams. Now, maybe coaching is what you need. Here are a few reasons to seek help from a life coach:

  • Goal setting
  • Career change
  • Major life transitions
  • Lack of fulfillment
  • Accountability

Thriveworks is a safe and open environment without judgment or fear. Every person is unique, as is their innermost worries, fears, goals, and dreams. Call today to schedule therapy or life coaching.

While making the decision to pursue counseling is an excellent decision for your mental health, it should not be taken lightly. You should make sure that the professional that you are entrusting your heart and mind to is indeed that: a professional. At Thriveworks, we only hire the best counselors, psychologists, and therapists. Our professionals are leaders in their field, respected for their work. They can help you in in-person sessions or online counseling therapy.

We are ready to put our expertise to work for you. Many offices operate with long waiting lists and limited hours. At Thriveworks Boston, we are different. We recognize that you lead a busy life and that it was probably difficult to pick up the phone and call us for the very first time. For that reason, we pride ourselves on not operating with a waiting list. In most cases, we have appointments available within the same week, if not within 24 hours (for first-time clients). We want to be ready when you are ready for help. Worried about the cost? Don’t be. Unlike many “cash-only” practices, we accept most major insurance plans.

You may be in the midst of an intense trauma. You may be fighting with your spouse or partner. You may want to make that change in your life that you have been putting off for so long. You may want to give a voice to your hopes and dreams. Whatever the reason, we are ready to walk with you on this journey of hope and healing. It would be our honor to partner with you to better your mental health. Call us today at (617) 671-1264 to set up your first session and start the process to change.

ly recommend her as an insightful, caring, and knowledgeable counselor. She always seems able to pinpoint the crux of a matter, and help her clients (and coworkers) find the best path. In more than a few instances, when I was faced with a difficult situation, she was always willing to help in any way she could, whether as an ear to listen, an advocate, or a problem-solver. I am glad that she has found a base at Thriveworks, and is able to use her talent to help others.
