Mr Sachs has been outstanding with his handling of our sessions. Personally, I believe that therapy/counseling is truly a personal experience and the therapist needs to be matched to the patient as much as the patient with the therapist. I feel like he was a perfect fit for what we needed with our sessions.

What Benefits Come from Working with a Counselor or Psychologist?

When a person has a physical ailment, like a sprained ankle or a sore throat, we all know who to see. When we have a legal problem, it’s easy to know where to find help. But when we have mental health issues, it can be difficult to know where to turn.

If you are not familiar with counseling, clinical social work, or psychotherapy, it can be overwhelming to try something new. We understand this feeling, but counseling and therapy are incredibly common. It can be difficult to know how to get started, but understand that this is a very positive and beneficial step.

Whatever the reason that you are considering counseling, therapy, or life coaching, certain emotional and psychological benefits are common. Some of these include:

  • Becoming more realistic about your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Clearly-defined goals.
  • Gaining a better understanding of fears and negative tendencies.
  • Developing a better way to deal with your emotions.
  • Helping you understand and cope with the past.
  • Becoming more prepared for the emotional turmoil of the future.
  • Opening yourself to new experiences and relationships.
  • Feeling more fulfilled.

We are not guaranteeing that you will achieve all of these benefits, but experiencing a few is very likely. When you have the opportunity to talk about your life, your feelings, your emotions, and your relationships, you get a better understanding of what is bothering you, what is helping you, and what steps you need to take to move forward in a healthy manner.

What Is the Difference Between Therapy, Counseling, and Psychiatry?

Therapy, provided by our counselors and therapists, addresses emotional and behavioral challenges using therapeutic techniques for mental well-being. Counseling, offered by counselors or therapists, focuses on specific issues and life adjustments, while psychiatry, led by our psychiatric nurse practitioners, involves diagnosing and treating mental health conditions with medication.

What Are the Types of Therapists You Can See?

While availability may vary, at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charleston, we offer:

  • Licensed Independent Social Workers – Clinical Practice (LISW-CPs): Specialized in social work and counseling for individuals, families, and groups.
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs): Focused on relationship and family-related issues.
  • Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs): Trained to offer counseling services for various emotional and mental health issues.

When you connect with a provider at Thriveworks, you’ll be sharing your experience with an industry-leading expert; someone with the experience and professional insight you need to move forward.

How Do I Find the Right Therapist?

To find the right therapist or therapeutic approach at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charleston, browse our provider profiles, or contact your local office at (843) 376-6157 to discuss your needs and preferences with our helpful support team.

Signs I Should Go to Therapy

Some of the signs you might benefit from therapy or psychiatric services include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or hopelessness
  • Difficulty managing and coping with daily stress
  • Strained or troubled relationships with family, friends, or partners
  • Overwhelming grief after a significant loss
  • Frequent mood swings, anger, or irritability
  • Changes in appetite, sleep patterns, or energy levels
  • Unresolved trauma or past experiences affecting your well-being
  • Struggles with addictive behaviors or substance abuse
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Overwhelming feelings of guilt, shame, or worthlessness

Don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our providers if you’re feeling any of these symptoms.

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy and In-Person Therapy?

The benefits of online therapy include:

  • Convenience and accessibility from anywhere
  • Reduced travel time and costs
  • Comfortable and familiar environment
  • A wider selection of therapists to choose from

The benefits of in-person therapy include:

  • Face-to-face interaction and non-verbal cues
  • No reliance on internet connection or technology
  • Privacy and confidentiality in a physical office

What Should I Do If a Loved One Needs Help?

If you have a loved one who is in need of mental health services, you can help them by attempting to:

  • Communicate openly and non-judgmentally
  • Offer support and encourage them to seek professional help
  • Research and connect them with appropriate resources
  • Be patient and maintain a supportive presence throughout their journey to recovery

Our experienced therapists, counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners can assist—don’t hesitate to have the individual you love seek help and support.

Are the Therapists at Thriveworks Licensed and Verified to Provide Therapy?

Yes, all of our therapists, counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners are licensed or in the process of receiving their licensure.

How Much Does Therapy Cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session (for both in-person and online sessions) depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.
