I highly recommend Brianna Sheridan and her expertise as a therapist. I have had the pleasure to know Brianna for several years and have worked with her as a colleague. Brianna is very knowledgable and I have often sought her advice and insight regarding counseling matters and concerns. She is a competent, highly skilled, and a very compassionate therapist.

I recently started utilizing Thriveworks and my counselor is amazing! I have seen a few therapists over the years, but she is the first that I feel has real tools that work for me. I am an overly analytical person, and she has introduced me to so many new ways to think about various problems, new and old, that have given me a fresh perspective. Today was the second day in my short time here that I left with that "mind blown" feeling, and today I couldn’t believe the positive feelings I had on these new approaches she provided me. Also, which is the best part of course, the office is so peaceful and calming, the staff are all incredible, and just walking in the door makes me de-stress quite a bit. I definitely recommend giving Thriveworks a shot if you are looking for a welcoming place! Go Buckeyes!

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 Columbus, we offer:

  • Licensed Independent Social Workers (LISWs): 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 Clinical Counselors (LPCCs): 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 Columbus, browse our provider profiles, or contact your local office at (571) 554-1147 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.

Why Choose Online Psychiatry? 

With <span data-sheets-value=""1":2,"2":"Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Columbus"” data-sheets-userformat=”"2":515,"3":"1":0,"4":"1":2,"2":12050893,"12":0“>Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Columbus, our psychiatric services are completely virtual; you can get personalized mental health care from the location of your choice. As long as you have reliable internet and sufficient privacy, you’re set to talk from anywhere. Online psychiatry is a great resource for clients who want to: 

  • Eliminate the need to commute to a brick-and-mortar location: If you have reliable internet and a private space to talk with your psychiatrist, you’re set. Attend your session from home, the office—wherever.
  • Reduce the anxiety they might feel about seeking mental health services: it can be easier to discuss concepts or situations related to your mental health needs.
  • Prioritize their mental health: Take care of your emotional well-being, even if you have a busy work or travel schedule. Parents or those taking care of elderly relatives can have the opportunity to take care of themselves, too.

You can rest easy knowing that your conversations will be kept confidential—our online sessions adhere to the same strict HIPAA privacy regulations as our in-person sessions do. 

What Is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a very common field of counseling. But there is little regulation in this field and you will want to be careful in who you choose to partner with you in this pursuit. <span data-sheets-value=""1":2,"2":"Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Columbus"” data-sheets-userformat=”"2":515,"3":"1":0,"4":"1":2,"2":12050893,"12":0“>Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Columbus life coaches are experienced, educated professionals, ready to help you answer these questions.

Most of us do not realize the dreams we have when we are kids happen for a number of reasons. Of course, our desires and goals can change, and maybe we develop different priorities. However, little pieces of our childhood dreams can still be with us as adults. Sometimes, our hectic daily lives disrupt the vision we have for our future. Life coaching can help you sift through the noise and remember your goals.

They may need to adjust from what you thought your life would be when you were a child. Thriveworks Columbus life coaches can help you set realistic goals, understand the blocks that are preventing you from achieving those goals, and develop a plan for real accomplishment and achievement.
