Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry in Pittsburgh, PA

Depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, or any other mental health challenge can make life very lonely and confusing. One of the hardest parts is knowing who to count on. Knowing where to turn can be overwhelming and challenging. Certainly, friends and family members can be very helpful in the midst of hard times, but many people face difficulties that need more support and care than loved ones can offer.

The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Pittsburgh can be your trusted partner in taking care of your mental health. We offer mental health care that ranges from therapy to counseling, life coaching, and more.

Counseling and Therapy: How Does It Work?

Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Pittsburgh can help you recognize harmful habits and patterns in life, repair destructive or unhealthy relationships, and improve any areas of weakness. We can be a confidant, and someone who is simply looking out for you, your health, your happiness, and your goals. If you are struggling with a mental illness, we may also help you find a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Your Thriveworks counselor may also help you identify your skills and talents, develop realistic and honest goals, create action steps, and measure progress. When trying to make a change in your life, simply having someone to process your thoughts and emotions with can make a huge difference.

How Can Life Coaching Help Me?

In addition to counseling and therapy, Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Pittsburgh offers life coaching services, which can take on many different forms, such as career coaching, health coaching, business coaching, and mentoring. Coaching differs from mental health counseling. Technically, anyone can call themselves a life coach, whether they are experienced or educated or credentialed or not—but our life coaches are certified, licensed professionals in the mental health field.

The life coaching services at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Pittsburgh are designed to enrich your life. Your time with your coach may be fun, entertaining, and something many clients look forward to during their week, even though personal growth is not always easy. If real change or progress is possible, the journey to achieve these goals may be painful at times.

During those harder times, our life coaches are prepared to offer the support and care that you need. Whatever your experience or needs, your Thriveworks life coach will be honored to walk with you on this journey. Each client is different and presents different goals for their coaching or counseling experience. We understand and respect this and will tailor our process for your individual needs.

Many people pursue life coaching when they are facing relational or professional changes. Are you considering a career change? Are you and your significant other considering marriage? If so, consider working with a life coach at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Pittsburgh as you navigate these life adjustments.

Benefits of Counseling, Therapy, and Life Coaching

No matter the complications you face and no matter the particulars of your life, our counselors, therapists, and life coaches are ready to offer support and guidance. They do this by encouraging you to discover what is most important to you. A mental health professional may help you to:

  • Discover what your priorities are.
  • Learn the best way to manage those priorities.
  • Establish strategies and techniques to be your best self.
  • Remove the obstacles that are all too often in your way.
  • Offer dedicated time and support.

Would I Benefit From Working With a Licensed Psychiatrist?

The mind and the body are highly intertwined. This is why many people with mental and emotional disorders can also experience physical symptoms like low energy, panic attacks, and insomnia.

As a medical doctor, a psychiatrist is qualified to evaluate your symptoms and develop a plan for effective treatment. The complex nature of certain conditions calls for an individual with medical expertise. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication if needed, perform talk therapy, and make self-care recommendations to improve certain aspects of your condition.

Bonnie Healey was a phenomenal counselor.

Bonnie Healey was a phenomenal counselor. She was easy to talk to, a great listener, and offered excellent insight into my situation. The only reason I’m leaving (temporarily) is my personal financial situation has changed drastically. I hope to be back on my feet soon and the second I do, I’ll be making an appointment with Bonnie again. Thriveworks made the process easy and comfortable, and I appreciate all the help from Bonnie and the entire organization.
