Frequently asked questions

Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cambridge is unlike any other therapy practice in Boston or Cambridge, Massachusetts. We believe that anyone can benefit from counseling therapy or life coaching. Many of our clients are successful individuals and couples who know, as we do, that everyone has the potential to grow — to thrive. Also, we can offer you in-person counseling as well as online counseling therapy.

The problem is, that there are many people out there that think they have to achieve this alone.

This is not the case. The truth is that millions of people, even (if not especially) already successful people reach out to a counselor or coach for help with achieving their goals or to overcome problems.

When we started this company, we wanted to be a direct response to the challenge so many people have when pursuing coaching or counseling for the first time. That challenge might have started days, weeks, or even years ago, when the trauma occurred or anxiety percolated from some unknown, dark place.

Even if you’ve only been dealing with your particular set of issues for a short period of time, going through the process of researching counselors, leaving voicemails, and playing “phone tag” only to be told that your insurance provider isn’t accepted makes matters far worse.

You might even be experiencing a level of shame about what you’re going through and about needing a counselor.

Seeking the help of a counselor or coach isn’t weak or shameful. Struggling alone through your issues, however, is tragic.

In many ways, scheduling an appointment with a mental health professional is no less ordinary than scheduling a routine medical examination. In order to live happy, fulfilling lives, we need to be healthy. So just like you need to take certain measures to keep your physical health in check (such as exercising, getting plenty of sleep, and eating well), monitoring your mental and emotional health can also dramatically improve your wellbeing.

Because when you’re somehow off balance (mentally, physically, or both), making even the smallest decisions or accomplishing small tasks can be next to impossible.

Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cambridge appreciates these challenges, and in turn has created a mental health practice that aims to provide the care you need, when you need it — regardless of the difficulty or goal you’re facing.

Millions of individuals have already discovered how a counselor or coach can help you to:

  1. Establish and achieve goals
  2. Overcome professional and personal relationship problems
  3. Be proactive about personal growth

We hire only the best, most qualified professional coaches, psychiatrists, psychologists, and counselors we can find. You can trust your issues in the hands of our mental health experts. Call us today, as we have in-person and online counseling therapy appointments available.

There’s no limit to the reasons why people look to a coach or therapist for guidance.

Should I Talk with a Psychiatrist? 

Talking to a psychiatrist is most likely an independent decision that you’ll need to make on your own. However, anyone can benefit from talking with a mental health professional, including a psychiatrist. If you’re not familiar with what a psychiatrist is, they’re unique in that they: 

  • Are medical doctors, in addition to often being licensed mental health professionals
  • Can prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the harmful symptoms of mental health conditions 
  • Often the preferred treatment method for emotional or behavioral conditions such as major depression or ADHD

Not everyone who talks with a psychiatrist will be prescribed medication; your treatment will depend on your own preferences and needs. By talking openly about what’s bothering you, you can help to provide your Thriveworks psychiatrist with the information they need to help you manage your mental health challenges. 

 You may also consider our psychiatric services if you’re suffering from the symptoms of: 

  • ADHD 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • And many other mental health conditions 

No Waiting List Policy

In Cambridge, waiting lists for a counseling appointment can be weeks or longer. At Thrive, we adhere to a strict “no waiting list” policy. The way we see it, if you’re ready to begin counseling therapy or life coaching, the least we can do is help you to schedule your first session right away.

Most new clients are offered an appointment within 24 hours of their call to us.

Extended Weekend and Evening Hours

Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cambridge offers sessions at times that fit your schedule; daytimes, weekends, and evenings.

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 — say at 7 a.m. on a Tuesday or 3 p.m. on a Sunday — don’t hesitate to contact us. Our clinicians are often willing to schedule clients outside of our already extended hours. 

Concierge-Level Access to Your Coach or Therapist

Every Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cambridge client receives the phone number and email address of his or her therapist or life coach and has an open invitation to reach out to him or her — even without an appointment.
