Philadelphia Therapy, Psychiatry

Making the decision to talk over your life’s challenges with a licensed counselor or psychiatrist can be overwhelming in its own right.

 

In any case, Thriveworks Philadelphia therapy has counselors, psychiatrists, and psychologists who are ready to provide the expert care you need.

 

Talk to an Experienced Thriveworks Psychiatrist

Psychiatry appointments can offer many benefits to those struggling with mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders.

 

As licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists can look at the big picture when making diagnoses and coming up with treatment plans. They can evaluate your physical symptoms and guide you through psychological tests to gauge the severity of your situation and the right course of action.

 

Psychiatrists can prescribe medication and provide many forms of talk therapy including psychotherapy, exposure therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Psychiatrists are also concerned with preventing mental illness. To that end, they can offer self-care recommendations, including changes to your diet, sleep, and exercise habits.

 

To get started, make an online appointment with the psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Philadelphia, PA today.

In order to live a balanced, fulfilling life, the whole of a person must be considered. Physical wellness is incredibly important (and is, in fact, integral to mental wellbeing), but just like we monitor our physical health by getting plenty of sleep, exercising, maintaining a nutrition-based diet and going to the doctor, our mental health is greatly improved when given the attention it deserves.

Without balance, without a realistic perspective, even simple tasks can become overwhelming.”

Counseling isn’t only for times of extreme emotional duress or for people suffering from long-term psychological disorders. Even happy, successful people benefit from honest, objective conversations they have with their therapists and coaches. There is always room for improvement and personal growth in our lives.

Also, even the most well adjusted struggle with challenging life issues from time-to-time:

  • Perhaps you’ve recently lost a close loved one and need someone to talk to
  • You might be stuck ruminating over past missteps and regrets, and your work productivity or current relationships could be paying the price
  • Your child might be having a difficult time adjusting to a new school
  • You and your significant other might be considering marriage
  • Perhaps you are unhappy with your job and don’t know how to improve your situation

There’s no limit to the number of reasons why people seek counseling therapy, or life coaching. The important thing is that you actually do so. Tragedy isn’t experiencing severe depression, or anxiety or missing that promotion. Tragedy is going through these things alone and not reaching out for readily available (and effective) care.

Reasons to pursue therapy include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Child therapy
  • Suspected abuse in a child
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

It’s not possible to list every reason people meet with our counselors and life coaches, but know that we have a counselor or coach who can help you with whatever the concern, situation or goal is that brought you to this page.

6 months in and still coming. Have been helped immensely. Safety, convenience, compassion and (!) late hours really helped me commit.”

Thriveworks is unlike any other therapy practice. We began as a single office in Cambridge, Mass., but have since grown to become a national company with locations being added in new states and cities every month.

No Waiting Lists: Sessions within 24 Hours

We believe that anyone can benefit from counseling or life coaching, that everyone has the potential to make the changes necessary for living a fulfilling life. But what we don’t believe in is waiting lists, or having potential clients leave voicemails with the hope that we’ll call back.

We want you to find the care you need, when you need it, so when you call Thriveworks, one of our friendly scheduling specialists will set you up with an appointment for the same week, if not within 24 hours. You call, we answer, you have a session. Simple as that.

Extended Evening and Weekend Hours

Thriveworks Philadelphia therapy services are available at times that suit your schedule; we offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments. 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. As an expression of our dedication to you, our client, Thriveworks Philadelphia Therapy counselors and coaches been known to schedule sessions outside of our already extended hours.

Telephone and Email Access to Your Counselor

Every Thriveworks Philadelphia therapy client receives the phone number and email address of his or her therapist or life coach, and has an open invitation to reach out to him or her — even without an appointment.

Industry-Leading Counselors and Coaches

Our trained and licensed Philadelphia counselors, therapists, and life coaches are leaders in their field, and have been featured in trusted news outlets, such as The Boston Globe, CNN, The Journal of Mental Health Counseling, Prevention, Psychiatric Times, Counseling Today, and many others. Our counselors accept most insurance providers, and are ready to put their training and experience to work for you.

We understand that you might be going through a difficult time right now, but the very fact that you’re seeking therapy is a great sign that you have what it takes to overcome your challenges — it starts with a simple message or phone call. We will work with you and talk about your background and issues, and begin developing a new sense of purpose and hope.

Reach out to us. It’s the first of many good decisions you’re about to make.

I really liked Meaghan

★★★★★
I really liked Meaghan, she was very helpful at defusing when things got a bit hostile. She focused on the major issues and the small frustrating things happening between us. I wish we could come more often! I didn’t like the fact that we stressed to the receptionist that we needed later appointments due to Keith’s jobs but she told us that we had to come early just for this appointment and each one after that would be later. She scheduled us with a therapist who does have late appointments which makes no sense at all after stressing that we picked Their on the bases of having those late appointment options.

Counseling session itself was great

★★★★☆
Counseling session itself was great, and noise machines ensured privacy. However, the lobby area was quite small and the chairs directly faced each other, leading to a slightly awkward waiting room experience. Maybe have smaller chairs or spread them out more?
Thriveworks Counseling Philadelphia (JFK Blvd)

Amazing Person Inside and Out

★★★★★
Miss Frye is an amazing therapist. She was able to connect with my son in the first session and get him to open up about issues I was not aware of. With her personal connection with my son and great communication with me, we were able to work through our issues together as a team. Today my son is one of the happiest kids I know. I give Miss Frye a great deal of the credit because of her admiration for her job, it helped me recognize certain behaviors and taught me how to "react" to his behaviors in a positive fashion. Miss Frye is truly an asset to the Mental Health field!

Truly Remarkable

★★★★★
Dr. Alan Goldberg I followed Dr. Alan Goldberg from his former practice to with excellent reason. Alan has always made me feel that we are on the same page sine our first session. His true caring and warmth earned my trust and respect from the start. His real and empathetic manner would make anyone feel comfortable and open to his outstanding guidance and skill building. With his help, for the first time. I was and have been able to identify my mental and emotional needs in many distressed areas of my life. Alan has imbued in me the wisdom to realize that the only person's behavior I can change is my own, and to ask for skills, step by step solutions to serious problems I had had for years. He has given me a wealth of super effective suggestions, ideas, resources, etc., that have greatly assisted me in changing much of my negative behavior into positive. Under Dr. Goldberg's support and encouragement, in a calm and relaxed atmosphere, I was given the strength to go from a major atypical morbid paralyzing depression to a much more healthy, harmonious and balanced mindset. After nasty verbal fighting with my mother for decades, the productive changes in my behavior brought about an abrupt positive change in my mother's negative, criticizing manner. Thanks to Dr. Goldberg, I and my mother enjoyed a close and wonderful relationship the last six years of her life. On the lighter side, Alan and I have discussed everything from music of the 60's to Star Trek to how to avoid jerks when dating. But most importantly, Alan's approaches to developing a healthy and balanced life are not just for mental and emotional improvement. Alan's extraordinary guidance also extends to physical improvement, ( in my case dieting, exercise, nutrition ), to spiritual growth, and to any and all positive change and flourishing. I therefore give my highest recommendation to the remarkable Dr. Goldberg and Thriveworks. A plus is that has the most comfortable, relaxing waiting area, and an assortment of coffee, herbal teas, bottled water, and even hard candy goodies. A huge negative is that does not accept most insurance. Medicare and highly solvent and reputable secondary insurance should be accepted.

Mary

★★★★★
I have been seeing Mary since October. I am a much better person now than I was when she met me. I was a wreck, life in shambles but Mary has been a sweetheart and I am doing so much better. She makes me feel comfortable and she has been a great help to me. My visits have decreased and I am a much stronger person than I was when I began therapy. This a great place for counseling, don't miss an opportunity to be blessed.
Thriveworks Counseling Philadelphia (JFK Blvd)

Professional, empowering, kind

★★★★★
Dr. Laura Keyser and I have been meeting for about a month now. She has been a huge help with my current situation, and I look forward to our weekly meetings. I am so glad I found her (and Thriveworks) in a time where I didn't know what else to do or where to go and generally was in a worse off place. Recommend to anyone who wants a convenient location and hours. Be sure to talk through the different subscription options available.
