Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


Life is completely beautiful and wonderful and I wouldn’t change a thing. Do you agree with this statement? It probably depends on your current circumstances. If you just got a promotion, you’re at a great place with your partner, or have other personal victories to celebrate, you probably do agree with this sentence. If, on the other hand, you just got fired, you’re in a fight with your spouse, or you’re struggling with other personal problems, you probably couldn’t disagree more!

Here is the test to find whether your mission

on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.”

–Richard Bach

We all experience highs and lows. Can you agree with this statement? Hopefully, the answer is unequivocally yes. When we encounter the highs it’s easy to feel grateful for the life we’re living, and when we encounter the lows it’s easy to feel pessimistic about life instead. In fact, it’s okay to feel pessimistic about or angry at life, so long as you take proactive steps to climb yourself out of the depths.

Often, we could use a hand to successfully climb out and bury the hole we fell into. This hand might belong to a loved one… but sometimes we need a little extra strength, of which we can find in a mental health professional. If you’re looking for Fairfax counseling, but you’re struggling to book an appointment that works with your schedule, consider working with one of our online counselors at Thriveworks McLean. To schedule your appointment, just call (571) 589-4042.

Fairfax Counseling: Who Can Benefit from Online Counseling?

Here at Thriveworks McLean, we believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from working with a skilled, caring counselor, therapist, or coach. This can be in-person or online! That said, there are some people who might find online counseling particularly beneficial, such as those looking for more flexible scheduling options as well as greater anonymity in therapy. Consider the following examples:

  1. Jen and Troy can’t seem to find a therapist who has availability that fits their needs. They both work 9-5 jobs and can’t possibly leave for 60+ minutes to attend a couples therapy appointment. Fortunately, they find online counseling services, which allow them to attend their session after work hours and from the comfort of home.
  2. Allison knows that she could benefit from working with a counselor, but she wants to keep her decision private and worries that someone she knows will see her walking into the therapy office. Fortunately, she discovers an online therapy opportunity and jumps at the chance to work with a counselor online. Allison doesn’t have to worry about revealing her decision to attend therapy to people in her community.
  3. John is sick of having to cancel and reschedule his therapy appointments. It seems like there’s always something that makes him late or causes him to miss his session, including unpredictable weather and road conditions. The good news is that John finds an online therapy service, makes the switch, and couldn’t be happier with his decision. He’s able to make meaningful progress with his counselor each week, over the phone and via videoconferences.

Do you find yourself in a similar predicament? Are you struggling to find a therapist who has scheduling options that fit your schedule? Are you looking for a counseling option that offers greater anonymity? Are you longing for greater reliability in counseling? Online counseling might be a great option for you. Reach out to Thriveworks McLean to find out more.
