Counseling for Students in Pooler, GA—Counselors and Therapists

School should be a time to get excited about the future and prepare for your best life. And while this remains true for some, for others school is a very different reality. It comes with extraordinary amounts of pressure and the risk for unhealthy mental health.

There are so many ways for students to learn, grow, and have fun. But with more of these opportunities comes more opportunities to “fail” by society’s standards. Nowadays, students are expected to have healthy relationships, do well in academics, and fill their time with extracurriculars that will launch them into the next phase of life. Along with that, there’s the peer pressure of drugs, bad habits, and fitting in. No wonder student’s mental health declines during the school year!

Thriveworks Pooler works to take some of the pressure off of students and teach them techniques to keep them healthy and thriving.

How Do I Know If Counseling for Students Is for Me?

Difficulty is apart of growing up. It can even be beneficial to their development. But when is it too much? It’s a tricky balance, especially when you’re an adult and can’t distinguish normal student stress and mood swings from something more dangerous. Thriveworks Pooler is here to walk you through some options and decide on the next best steps.

Usually, when the struggles become prolonged, it becomes dangerous. Being stressed the night before a test is normal. Being every night for two weeks before a test is not. It can start to impact all parts of their life in negative ways that they don’t deserve. Counseling for students is one way that students can be heard and learn healthy coping methods for current situations, past pains, or future worries.

Thriveworks Pooler Counseling for Students is open to any topic. There’s never too-big or too-small reason for counseling, all are welcome! If we aren’t the best fit for you and your student, we can help you find the person who is. Your student deserves to have a happy, fulfilling life. We are determined to help them get there!

Sometimes, students will withdraw when they’re struggling, making the decision to reach out even more difficult. Thank you for having the courage to do so! To help you, here are a few signs that could point towards an unhealthy mental state.

  • Worrying and stress
  • Trouble making friends
  • Social anxiety
  • Self-Harm
  • Changes in sleep and eating habits
  • Self-confidence and image
  • Withdrawal from loved ones
  • Hopelessness
  • Anger
  • Suicidal Ideation (wishing they weren’t here or thinking that no one would miss them)

What Does Counseling for Students Look Like?

Thriveworks Pooler strives to make all our Student Counseling sessions unique. In part because the student’s struggles are always unique, and in part because they are always unique!

Our counselors will also always keep the focus of the session on your student, they are the most important person in the room. We meet you where you’re at and work from there. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, there is always hope.

Some of the issues we might address in a Counseling for Students session include:

  • Counseling for athletes / Sports counseling
  • Stress counseling
  • Anxiety counseling
  • Depression counseling
  • Counseling for eating disorders
  • Trauma counseling
  • Relationship counseling
  • Bullying counseling
  • Counseling for video game addiction
  • Grief counseling
  • Career coaching
  • and much more

At times, it can feel like the only way to have a happy, fulfilling life is to grind through school and just take whatever life throws at you. But your student also deserves to be healthy and happy in their day-to-day life. It won’t always be perfect, but it shouldn’t be miserable either! If you or your student could benefit from Student Counseling, give us a call today. Thriveworks Pooler is excited to start building the life you deserve!

Great Experience

My experience with Valery Dickinson has been amazing. She always takes her time, extremely knowledgeable, and challenges me in all aspects. I highly recommend.
Thriveworks Counseling Pooler


I can talk about Valeria forever because she was the only one who was able to help me with my condition. I was dealing with deep depression due to my husband’s passing from Covid complications. I was seen by many doctors but I was not getting better. My friend recommended to talk to Valeria. She was my last hope. From the first session I felt I could trust her. Valeria has a voice of an Angel. She makes you feel very happy and uncluttered. I was always anticipating for my next session with her because I knew that I am going to feel even better. Valeria is amazing and if you need help she is the one to go to!!!!

I can talk about Valeria and her skills forever because she is a master of her craft. I was struggling with depression due to my husband’s passing. I was seeing by doctors and therapist but none of them were able to help. My friend recommended Valeria. Valeria was my last hope. Right from the first session I felt very comfortable with her. Her voice was very calming and welcoming. My trust to her grew right away. She is amazing! With her guidance I am able to control my emotions and I am feeling much much better. I highly without doubt recommend her!!!

Great Guidance

My parents divorced when I was in high school, as a family we went to Thriveworks Counseling in the ATL area. Now I'm a student at GSU and saw that there's a location coming to Pooler soon. Just a short drive to see a therapist at a place that helped me and my family during a difficult time.
