Frequently asked questions

Counseling and Life Coaching in Philadelphia, PA (University City)—Counselors, Life Coaches, and Psychologists

Alex always downplays how she’s feeling. She sweeps these feelings under the rug—he hurt, her anger, her disappointment—and convinces herself that it’s okay, it’s no big deal. While it seems to help initially, all of these built-up emotions eventually take a toll. Alex must acknowledge, process, and regulate her emotions rather than brushing them off. Doing so will help her to improve and maintain better overall mental health. The problem is she has no idea how to begin this process.

Alex can begin by working with a mental health professional. Therapists, counselors, and psychologists have the experience, the training, and the skills to help people (just like Alex) better understand and manage their emotions. This is one of many ways they can help us to protect and improve our mental wellbeing. These mental health professionals can also help us to manage symptoms of mental illness, better cope in stressful circumstances, heal from difficult losses, address issues in our relationships with others, and tackle other challenges too.

Ask for help. Not because you are weak, but because you want to remain strong. –Les Brown

To get started with a counselor, therapist, or another mental health professional, you simply need to schedule a session! It’s just like setting up an appointment at the doctor’s office if you start to feel physically ill or have another concern you’d like to talk to them about. At Thriveworks Philadelphia Counseling, we don’t want you to have to wait an extended period of time to meet with your counselor, therapist, or coach. We want to get you in as soon as possible. And that’s what we promise to do when you call our office!

Mental Health Services Offered at Thriveworks Philadelphia Counseling

The challenges and problems we might be confronted with in any given moment are aplenty. One moment we might feel super satisfied and content with our lives; the next we might feel completely unsatisfied instead! These changes might be due to evolving emotions, relationships, circumstances at work, stressors at home, and so on. We must learn to accept these constantly evolving factors and focus on how we are able to work through them. If this means reaching out for a little extra help, there is nothing wrong with that!

Thriveworks Philadelphia Counseling is dedicated to an important mission: helping people live happy and successful lives. We grasp the many challenges that might stand in one’s way of living happily and successfully, and we are here to help everyone address these challenges to the best of our ability. This is why we offer a wide range of mental health services, including (but not limited to):

  • Depression therapy
  • Anxiety therapy
  • Grief counseling
  • Couples therapy
  • Marriage counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Child therapy
  • Trauma therapy
  • Stress counseling
  • Anger management counseling
  • Life coaching

As you might have notice, the varying forms of therapy and counseling that we offer here at Thriveworks Philadelphia Counseling are designed to help people with their specific challenges. For example, if you and your spouse are struggling to get along, marriage counseling can help you to open up about your conflicts and improve your marriage. On the other hand, if you are suffering after losing a close friend or family member, grief counseling can help you process your loss and heal moving forward.

The very first thing your Thriveworks Philadelphia counselor, life coach, therapist, or psychologist will do is get to know what your unique needs are. Once they understand these needs, they can make an informed decision regarding your customized treatment plan. This individualized approach to treatment is a priority here at Thriveworks Philadelphia Counseling, as it will best ensure success in counseling.
