In a nutshell, counseling can help people make meaningful changes, put the pieces back together, and turn their dreams into reality.

How Can Counseling Help Me Better My Life?
In counseling, we often use a scale of -10 to 0 to +10, where -10 would indicate so much pain or dysfunction that a person is unable to go about normal life. If you would rate yourself a +10, that would mean that things cannot get any better. We can use this scale to measure many different areas of life, such as relationships, career, and overall happiness. We are rarely operating at ten in all areas of life.
Therapy usually attempts to bring a person from negative functioning to somewhere in the positive range. Life coaching has the goal of bringing someone from positive functioning to an even higher level. Whatever your goals for counseling or therapy, Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Norfolk can be your trusted partner in your mental health and wellbeing. We have experts in many areas of counseling. We work with couples, children, teens, individuals, and families.
What Else Can You Tell Me About Counseling?
Thriveworks in Norfolk offers personalized care to every single client. In other words, our providers get to know their clients, including their needs, their goals, even their personalities and counseling preferences (if they have any). Then, and only then, do these professionals design a plan for helping their clients in counseling, therapy, or coaching. To get into more specifics, your time with your Thriveworks counselor might involve…
- Having tough, yet rewarding conversations
- Talking to loved ones about conflicts
- Delving into experiences from your childhood
- Understanding the cause or emergence of specific emotions
- Learning how to manage these emotions and stress
- Discovering new tools for working through any given problem
Your counselor will help you work through any current challenges as well as help you to prepare for any future challenges. They want to set you up for long-term happiness and success, and they’ll do everything they can to accomplish this mission.
Should I Make an Appointment for Psychiatry?
As part of our team of mental health experts, our psychiatrists are medical doctors dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illness. Some people think of psychiatrists as treating only the most severe mental health cases. While they are qualified to treat severe conditions, our psychiatrists also treat clients suffering from all kinds of mental health concerns, including sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and substance abuse.
Every client is different so our psychiatrists are trained to customize your treatment plan to match your specific symptoms, goals, and medical history. If talk therapy or medication is necessary, our psychiatrists are qualified to handle those parts of your treatment. They can also make helpful recommendations regarding self-care, managing symptoms, as well as coping strategies.
If you’re ready to make an online appointment, our licensed virtual psychiatrists are standing by in Norfolk, VA. We look forward to meeting you.
