Paul has lived in the same house nearly all of his life. In his town of fewer than 500 people, he’s always felt right at home.
But lately, something seems different. The town and its people haven’t changed, his job remains secure, and most of his family still lives close by. But Paul hasn’t felt as happy. His boisterous, cheerful attitude is now interspersed with periods of intense sadness and worry.
He tries to shake the feeling. There’s no reason for him to be unhappy, as far as he can tell. But as the months go on, his mood becomes more and more unpredictable. He finds himself blowing up over little things and apathetic to the things that matter. When he thinks about it, this is exactly how his father used to behave during his later years in life.
Initially reluctant, Paul decides to reach out for care. He doesn’t want his relationship with others to suffer the same way his relationship with his father did. Within 48 hours, he connects with a licensed mental health professional at Thriveworks over video chat from the comfort of his woodworking studio.
His psychiatrist diagnoses him with a depressive disorder and helps him manage his mood swings and depression with medication and talk therapy. For the first time in a long time, Paul begins to feel like his old self.

A Guide to Virtual Therapy
Speaking with an online provider is as simple as picking up the phone. There are two ways to communicate with your Thriveworks mental health professional: by phone call or video chat.
If you choose to talk to your online therapist over a phone call, they will call you during your scheduled appointment time. If you choose to talk to your provider via video chat, you’ll receive a link prior to your scheduled appointment time. When it’s time to speak to your therapist, simply click the link to get started.
The ease of online communication is just one of the many benefits of the service. Additional benefits include:
- Increased comfort: Many clients feel better talking about personal issues when they are physically comfortable. With virtual counseling, you can take your therapy sessions from your bedroom, your living room, or even your home office.
- Increased efficiency: You can maximize your schedule by saving on commute time to the counseling center. Many clients receive care during their lunch break, between classes, or during other breaks in their day-to-day schedule.
- Convenience: If you live in a remote area, scheduling an online appointment with a therapist, counselor, or another licensed professional enables you to receive counseling without having to travel into town.
To set up your online appointment, please call us at Thriveworks in Scottsdale, AZ. We look forward to getting started with you.
