Customized sleep plans may involve …

  • Learning relaxation and meditation techniques. With the help of a trained professional, people may learn to guide their minds toward calming, relaxing, peaceful thoughts. These techniques take time and practice to learn, but they have helped many people relax their bodies and mind as they fall asleep or if they wake in the night.
  • Limiting alcohol and caffeine intake. People experiencing drowsiness often look to caffeine to help keep them alert, but caffeine can then make the sleep deprivation worse. This cycle means more drowsiness, then more caffeine, then less sleep. Similarly, alcohol may lead to sleep disruptions. With professional guidance, informed choices about caffeine and alcohol intake may help many people sleep more soundly.
  • Curbing daytime sleep. Taking catnaps may feel like a necessary part of the day if you have insomnia, but this daytime sleep may inhibit nighttime sleep. Similarly, lying in bed awake—even at night—may exacerbate sleep difficulties. However, over time, curbing daytime sleep or moving out of the bed during sleepless nights has helped many people sleep more soundly. Our professionals can help their clients examine sleeping patterns to optimize their ability to sleep.

Thriveworks Counseling Charlottesville

Safe environment where clients matter

★★★★★
Reaching out to Thriveworks was a great decision. The service is excellent and the representative matched me with the best counselor for my needs. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but I was pleasantly surprised when I met Anita Dean. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely cares about others. I have observed that she doesn't create cookie cutter plans. Instead, she creates a plan specific to the needs of her her clients. My husband and I lost our sweet family pet of over 15 1/2 years and it also caused the loss of a child to resurface. Anita, has handled my situation with care and assisted me as I walked through the grief process. I am so grateful.

Useless

★☆☆☆☆
Receptionist couldn't have been less helpful -- after waiting on hold 20 minutes, I told her I wanted to make an appointment to get assessed for some psychological issues, and she told me, simply, "We don't have anyone who can do that." That was it, no other comment. We just sat there in silence. She was unable to think, work, or put in any effort to help me try to find what I was looking for, or offer any kind of explanation of what she meant. I guess she was busy looking at memes on her phone or something. Or maybe ThriveWorks literally does not assess people for their psychological issues before counseling them? SOOOOO confused and frustrated.

Does not have the ability to meet advertised capability. Needed help with my daughter and made the first difficult call to be told no appointment available till after middle of May. One therapist only no other options. My daughter and I were excited when looking at the website and shocked on the outcome. However the phone specialist was very pleasant and he handled the call with the utmost respect.
