Lynchburg Counseling – Therapy, Life Coaching, Mental Health Services

Thriveworks: Providing a New Standard of Counseling care in Lynchburg, Virginia.”

Thriveworks Counseling in Lynchburg is unlike any other counseling and coaching practice. Our highly-experienced and care-oriented clinicians aim to bring positive change and development to the lives of each of our clients through customized treatment plans. Our goal is to help you navigate through challenging relationships, career development and other life issues.

Our company came about after our founder and CEO, Dr. Anthony Centore, tried reaching a counselor and the 40 numbers he called brought him to exactly 40 voicemails.

Let’s say you’re looking for a counselor or coach under one of the following circumstances:

  • A close friend or family member has recently passed away and the grief is making
  • The excitement of the wedding day has worn off, and your once giddy partnership has turned to resentment
  • Social drinking has turned into a nightly 6-pack (or more) and your work and relationships have begun to pay the price
  • Your child’s performance in school is getting worse, and you’re not sure why
  • You frequently experience feelings of sadness, and your energy levels are always low

When you’re going through a hard time, like one of the scenarios listed above, making the choice to seek help might not come easily. Perhaps you believe you can handle it on your own or are embarrassed people will know you’re pursuing therapy.

But even if you’re like one of the many already successful people who pursue counseling or coaching as a resource for further personal and professional growth, you should be able to find the care you’re looking for, when you’re looking for it — not after weeks of leaving voicemails and hoping to hear that one of the offices you called accepts your insurance or has timely session openings.

Thriveworks in Lynchburg is different. We operate off a strict “no waiting list” policy, that ensures that when you call — no matter what day or time — you’ll reach a person, not an answering machine, and we’ll schedule an appointment for the same week, if not within 24 hours.

Our skilled counselors, therapists and coaches will teach you how to:

  • Set and achieve goals
  • Work through challenging relationships and other life issues
  • Pursue and achieve personal and professional growth

We can offer both in-person and online counseling services. If you think you could benefit from working with a counselor or psychologist (again, either an in-person or online counselor), reach out to Thriveworks in Lynchburg today.

Your health matters. If you’re not in good mental and physical shape, day-to-day living can become exceedingly difficult. Simple decisions (much less major ones) get put off. You energy is low and you end up filling your time with activities that get you no closer to your goals.

In order to be physically healthy, you need to get plenty of sleep, eat a nutritious diet and exercise regularly. Your mental health also requires attention and maintenance, but it can be hard to do assess ourselves, since we are not exactly the most objective when it comes to self-analysis. We may not even realize, for example, the negativity present in our inner monologues. A skilled and qualified clinician, however, can provide the much-needed objectivity that will help you identify problems and work toward solutions.

Common reasons people pursue counseling and coaching include:

  • Anxiety disorder
  • Manic-depressive disorder
  • Depression
  • Career advancement
  • ADHD therapy
  • Premarital and pre-engagement counseling
  • Gender identity issues
  • Christian counseling
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Child therapy
  • Grief counseling
  • LGBTQ issues
  • Psychotherapy
  • Addiction therapy
  • Eating disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Whether your interest in counseling was sparked by something in the above list or not, know that our coaches and clinicians are experienced in working with a wide variety of issues and goals.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.”

With locations in 8 states (and counting!), Thriveworks counseling has built a strong reputation for high quality counseling and life coaching services that we provide to individuals, couples, and families. Founded in 2008, Thriveworks counselors have been featured in a number of professional and national publications including: The Washington Post, CNN, The Chicago Tribune, Mashable, Bleacher Report, Cult of Mac, Counseling Today, The Boston Globe, Christian Counseling Today, the Examiner, Newsday, and many more.

But more importantly, our counselors — now our fully licensed and certified Lynchburg Counselors–are caring, experienced, and available to help you reach your personal, relational, and professional goals.

Thriveworks Lynchburg Counseling Sessions Available Within 24 Hours

While the waiting lists for a counseling therapy appointment in Lynchburg, VA or Forest, VA can often be weeks (or in some cases MONTHS long if you plan to use insurance), the counselors at Thriveworks are happy to announce that we are now providing premium counseling care in Lynchburg, Virginia–and doing so without waiting lists. Test us: you can get an appointment with a Thriveworks Lynchburg Counseling within 24 hours; sometimes even the same day as your call to us.

Extended Evening and Weekend Hours

Thriveworks Lynchburg Counseling offers session times that suit your schedule, with appointments available during the daytime, evening and on weekends. 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, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our team has been known to schedule clients outside of our already extended hours.

We get it. You pay ever-increasing premiums for your Blue Cross, Anthem, Piedmont, Aetna, Humana, Cigna, Tri-care, United Healthcare, and any number of insurance plans. You want to use your insurance! And you ask yourself, after hearing from counselor after counselor “Why won’t anyone accept my insurance plan?”

Let us tell you, it’s not because the counselor is “too good” for it. Top surgeons accept insurance. Leaders in the healthcare field accept insurance. Those who care enough about their clients to get on insurance panels, bill insurance, and run their practices in an organized fashion accept insurance.

Thriveworks Lynchburg Counseling is proud to announce that, for the convenience of our clients, we accept many major insurance plans.

ion while visiting Lynchburg and I was agonizing on how to go forward. Crisis never happens at a convenient time but we were quickly able to get a family counseling meeting with a very respectful and skilled therapist, Regina. In one visit alone, Regina was able to help us see clearly the next steps needed for healthy family dynamics, and although I wish I could bring her back home with me, perhaps our other family members will take advantage of this great blessing available. Thanking God for your help.
