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.

Experience effective therapy with a counselor or therapist in Palo Alto

Taking care of your mental health is very important, but it isn’t always easy to do. Busy schedules, demanding jobs, and complicated family issues can make it challenging to stay on top of your mental health. All of this can be complicated by mental health issues like depression, anxiety, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Fortunately, support is available for people wanting to focus on their mental health. The team of therapists, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatric professionals at Thriveworks are here to help you tackle your mental health issues and help you maintain better mental health.

What Is the Difference Between Therapy, Counseling, and Psychiatry?

Therapy, provided by our counselors and therapists, addresses emotional and behavioral challenges using therapeutic techniques for mental well-being. Counseling, offered by counselors or therapists, focuses on specific issues and life adjustments, while psychiatry, led by our psychiatric nurse practitioners, involves diagnosing and treating mental health conditions with medication.

What Are the Types of Therapists You Can See?

While availability may vary, at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Palo Alto, we offer:

  • Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs): Specialized in social work and counseling for individuals, families, and groups.
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs): Focused on relationship and family-related issues.
  • Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs): Trained to offer counseling services for various emotional and mental health issues.

When you connect with a provider at Thriveworks, you’ll be sharing your experience with an industry-leading expert; someone with the experience and professional insight you need to move forward.

  • Struggles with addictive behaviors or substance abuse
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy and In-Person Therapy?

  • Convenience and accessibility from anywhere
  • Reduced travel time and costs

  • Face-to-face interaction and non-verbal cues

What Should I Do If a Loved One Needs Help?

If you have a loved one who is in need of mental health services, you can help them by attempting to:

  • Communicate openly and non-judgmentally
  • Offer support and encourage them to seek professional help
  • Research and connect them with appropriate resources
  • Be patient and maintain a supportive presence throughout their journey to recovery

Our experienced therapists, counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners can assist—don’t hesitate to have the individual you love seek help and support.

Are the Therapists at Thriveworks Licensed and Verified to Provide Therapy?

How Much Does Therapy Cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session (for both in-person and online sessions) depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.
