100% Satisfaction Guarantee

If your first session experience is less than stellar, we’ll work to make it right. If we can’t, we’ll refund your membership fee (up to one week after your session).

Premium Quality Standards

We go above and beyond to provide excellent clinical and customer service to all clients.

Appointments Start on Time

More than 97% of sessions begin on time or early.

Online Counseling

We offer two online counseling options, by phone and video, because we know that in-person counseling doesn't work for every lifestyle or schedule.

Online Booking

Clients can schedule- or change- sessions conveniently online.

Care at 340+ Locations

We have offices across the country, ready to help. If you relocate for work or school, it’s never been easier to transfer your care.

Same- or Next-Day Appointments

We provide same- or next-day sessions for new clients, unlike other mental health practices, which have average wait times of three weeks or more.

Offices Open Early and Late

Our offices are typically open from 7:30am-12am EST M-F, and on weekends.

Excellent Providers

We hire only the top 4% of providers to join our team and provide the very best care to our clients.

Providers That Accept Major Insurance Plans

Most counseling practices don't take insurance and have expensive rates, starting at $250 a session. We accept hundreds of insurance plans and offer affordable out-of-pocket rates as low as $99 a session.

Ultra-Flexible 23.5hr Cancellations

Life happens, we get it. We have a flexible cancellation policy that lets you cancel or reschedule your session for free with just 23.5 hours' notice.

Membership Benefits

This is what your membership gets you: valuable services insurance does not cover.

Advice by Email

Your provider is available by email to offer quick, non-medically necessary guidance (during business hours). Since many Thriveworks providers receive emails by both computer and smartphone, responses are often very prompt. This service is available to you even though it doesn’t qualify for insurance reimbursement.

Advice by Phone

Need some on-the-spot guidance? Consult with your provider by phone for non-medically necessary advice, even when you don’t have an appointment. They will make their best effort to be available. This service is available to you even though it doesn’t qualify for insurance reimbursement.

Success Navigator

Enjoy text support with the Success Navigator. Our membership specialists will text you to confirm appointments and ensure that you are satisfied with your experience. Also, text us anytime for assistance with billing or canceling/rescheduling an appointment.

Therapy Buddy

Get the most out of your sessions with Therapy Buddy, our mobile app with five password-protected features. Available for iPhone and Android.
