Talk with a Psychologist in Germantown, MD—Montgomery County Psychologists

Consider: Life is everything you’ve ever hoped for. You received that job promotion you were after; you’re newly engaged; and you’re getting ready to move into the house of your dreams. But you don’t feel happy or excited in the way that you know you should. Instead, you feel disconnected and uninterested. You aren’t motivated to go to work lately, and you force a smile when you see your fiancé. You can’t imagine working up the energy to move into your new house in just a few weeks. Something is clearly wrong, but you aren’t sure what.

In the description above, you’re exhibiting symptoms of depression: disconnected, uninterested, unmotivated, lethargic. This might be the last thing you suspected, due to all of the exciting new advancements in your life lately. But unfortunately, depression can affect anyone and develop for no apparent reason at all. The good news is that a psychologist can help you better understand why you might feel this way and, more importantly, what you can do about it to get back to your normal self.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being.” –Carl Rogers

In addition to mental illness diagnosis and treatment, psychologists can help people confront and manage other problems, including stress, anger issues, relationship problems, major life changes, and traumatic experiences. If you’re struggling and suffering mentally, a psychologist is the professional you want to work with. Thriveworks Germantown, MD has psychologists on our team who can help you today in in-person or online treatment. To get started, just call our office at (240) 949-6808.

Can I Benefit from Working with a Psychologist? How? 

In the example above, a psychologist can help you to identify your depression symptoms, offer a diagnosis, assess any underlying causes, and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to fit your needs. This, however, isn’t the only occasion in which working with a psychologist can prove beneficial. A psychologist can…

  1. Help you better manage stress and other difficult emotions: Stress is unavoidable. We all experience it, at work, in our relationships, at home, and to varying degrees. Now, while we can’t completely rid ourselves of stress, we can learn to better manage it with the help of a psychologist at Thriveworks Germantown. For example, if you are experiencing an overwhelming load of stress at work, your psychologist might teach you deep-breathing and other relaxation techniques.
  2. Support you during the difficult seasons of life: Losing a loved one is an unavoidable, heart-wrenching part of life. There’s no telling how we might respond to grief and loss, as each individual process is different; however, a psychologist at Thriveworks Germantown can help to ensure that you grieve properly. They can walk you through the despair, anger, and confusion you might experience throughout your grieving process. And they can provide you with endless, crucial support all the while.
  3. Help you adapt during major life transitions: Major life changes are also difficult, yet often unavoidable as well. For example, when we start a new job, accept a promotion, or make a move to an unfamiliar city. In any case, a psychologist at Thriveworks Germantown can help you adjust properly. Know that it’s normal to feel apprehensive, lonely, and maybe even sad during this transitional period. But our psychologists will help you through it.
  4. Assist you in resolving relationship issues: Relationship issues, from jealousy issues to infidelity and even differing religions, can cause us serious distress. It’s important that we can communicate well with our loved ones to work through these challenges and maintain each individual’s wellbeing. A psychologist at Thriveworks Germantown can help you accomplish this mission.

This list represents but a few challenges our psychologists can help you with. If you are struggling or suffering in any way, we want to do what we can to assist and support you. Our psychologists can offer a nonjudgmental, safe space to talk.

Thriveworks Counseling Germantown

Knew how to see past the obvious

★★★★★
It's extremely difficult to confront yourself and take steps to change especially when you feel "comfortable" doing what you have been doing for sometime even, if your actions have resulted in symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Shani knows how to see past the obvious and get to the core of the issue empowering you to work through tough emotions. Shani does so in a very reassuring manner and calming tone. It's challenging work but Shani's knowledge of CBT techniques have delivered great results and relief from anxiety and depression.

Counseling at it’s best

★★★★★
My wife and I have been having counseling sessions online (due to COVID) in Germantown. We counsel and get couples therapy from Janet Hawkins Pope. She is a well experienced and excellent counselor. We are very pleased with her. My wife and I highly recommend her not just for couples but for any type of counseling. The counseling sessions and the engagement has been very helpful to us and my family during these tough times.

Extremely helpful

★★★★★
I signed up with Thriveworks at the recommendation of my daughter. We have been thrown quite a few challenges the past few years and especially in recent months. On my first session with Janet I felt a warmth and a connection that usually takes much longer to achieve. She is open and friendly, encouraging and offers guidance. I find that I look forward to our sessions and reflect back on them as well. The additional resources that Janet has provided have been invaluable. I strongly encourage anyone having a tough time these days should reach out to Thriveworks Germantown.

The best

★★★★★
Elizabeth is truly one of the best therapies I’ve see. She helped me get through a confusing time in my life, and she helped me resolve a lot of negative noise and emotions. I liked that she gave me “homework” to do inbetween sessions. The homework allowed me to reassess my values and focus on positive thinking and emotions. The mind can be a very dark place. Seeing Elizabeth helped bring the light back in. 5 stars all around.

Five Stars

★★★★★
Elizabeth is one of the best therapists I’ve been to. She helped me get through a difficult and confusing part of my life by talking with me and guiding me to workthrough my grief. She also gave me self love “homework” after each session. The homework helped me to re-evaluate my values and needs and that helped me implement what I needed to thrive. She offers a safe place to talk and unload with no judgment. Elizabeth truly cares about her clients success and well being, she helped catapult me into becoming a better version of my self. You can tell she truly cares about your success, she’s the best.

Online Information incorrect

★☆☆☆☆
Ive contacted customer service in regards to the incorrect information posted on the Germantown MD site page. You state that the self pay rate is $65 for anyone not using insurance but when making an appointment over the phone the pricing given was over $200 for initial appointments and over $100 for regular appointments. Im giving 1 star based on my over the phone customer service experience. This information should be updated to eliminate any confusion.
