Boston, MA Counseling and Psychiatry—Mental Health Services

Most people would not ignore a physical pain that does not go away. But many people 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 therapists, coaches, psychiatrists, and psychologists are prepared to help you deal with any problem or concern you may bring to our office.

Call (617) 671-1264 to schedule a session at Thriveworks Boston counseling 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 hoped you could discuss and explore fully but have never taken the time to do so. You deserve to prioritize time on yourself. Counseling and coaching are designed for children, teens, young adults, adults, and elders.

Creating optimal mental health for yourself is beneficial to those around you as well. When you are working from a positive mindset, it is easier to interact with those around you with kindness and patience. There are several 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
  • Feeling overwhelmed

If you were not immediately able to place yourself into one of these categories, no need to fret. It is impossible to list all of the reasons that prompt individuals, couples, and families to pursue therapy. Whatever mental health issue you are grappling with, we can provide you guidance and support.

  • 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 are their innermost worries, fears, goals, and dreams. Call today to schedule therapy or life coaching and get the mental health care you deserve.

How a Thriveworks Psychiatrist Can Make a Difference in Your Life

Psychiatrists are experts in how the mind works, especially as it relates to mental health concerns. They can conduct a variety of psychological tests to gauge the severity of their clients’ symptoms and use that information to customize effective treatment plans.

Psychiatrists can prescribe medication and guide you through various talk therapy options, depending on the specifics of your situation. They can help reduce the severity of your symptoms in the short term but can also teach you coping strategies to use in the long term.

If you are seeking help with a mental health issue, consider contacting us at Thriveworks in Boston, MA today. We’d be happy to set you up with an online appointment.

Francesca’s the Best!

★★★★★
I had the pleasure of working with Francesca about a year ago. Francesca is a versatile, and imaginative clinician. She takes an individual approach to every client and their situation. Her commitment to your growth and healing is of paramount importance to her. You'll be in great hands with her!
Thriveworks Counseling Boston

Highly recommend Francesca

★★★★★
As a former colleague of Francesca Bjork's, when we worked together as educators of young children, I can highly 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.
