Frequently asked questions

Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Somerville, Your Local Mental Health Service

Remember when you were a child and someone asked you, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” What was your answer? As a kid, you may have dreamed about what type of family you would raise. Maybe you planned out your wedding or how many kids you wanted. Maybe you dreamed of becoming a firefighter, a police officer, or a veterinarian.

Most children have sweet and clear dreams for their lives—they know what they want. As people grow, the simplicity and clarity of life’s dreams can become muddied by challenges and setbacks. Rarely does life turn out exactly the way we hoped as kids. And yet, those dreams—whether they are the same dreams from childhood or whether they have shifted—are still worth fighting for.

Yes, real life is far more difficult than playing dress-up as a child. Everyone faces hardship, and no one is exempt from pain. Whether people are struggling relationally, professionally, or personally, no one has to navigate life’s ups and downs by themselves. At times, loved ones may be able to help, but sometimes, people want and need more guidance than their loved ones can reasonably offer. Many people are working with a mental health professional to tackle some of their life’s toughest challenges.

The counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Somerville love helping people navigate whatever roadblock life has thrown in their path. Our staff brings their training and expertise into each appointment, but more than that, they bring a caring and understanding outlook. We work together with our clients and for our clients to find a customized treatment plan for each individual.

Why Consider Mental Health Services?

No matter the problems people face, each and every one of us needs a place where we know we are safe and can speak freely and honestly about our lives. Such a place may bring clarity to confusion, perspective to our problems, and courage instead of fear. For many, that place is therapy, counseling, or psychiatry.

The staff at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Somerville works hard to cultivate a non-judgmental, safe time for their clients. This often allows people to reflect upon their own weaknesses and strengths, challenges, and opportunities. Of course, our mental health professionals provide interventions when necessary, but those are often enacted through a mutual relationship they have formed with their clients. As both the clients and the therapists establish goals for their time together, therapists can then empower clients to capitalize on their strengths, build skills to offset their weaknesses, and use these skills to achieve life goals. The therapists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Somerville consider this process a privilege.

Clients walk into our Thriveworks office for a variety of reasons, each unique and personal. Some people begin therapy knowing why they are reaching out for help. Others begin knowing that something may be off or that they want to make some kind of change, but as far as the specifics go, they will work it out along the way. Neither is right or wrong. Our staff has worked with many different clients. The therapist, counselors, and psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Somerville each have their own unique specializations and experience in a particular area of mental health.

Why Choose Counseling or Psychiatry?

When people have an injury or become sick, they make an appointment with their physician. Getting help for a physical illness is common practice, but unfortunately, it is not always the same for mental illness. Social stigma and denial can keep people from getting the help they need. Thankfully, the importance of mental health has been highlighted in recent years. Slowly, the tide is turning to see reaching out for help from a therapist, psychiatrist, or counselor as a sign of strength, and many people are receiving the benefit from the mental health professional that they need.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who can prescribe medication to promote healthy brain functioning. Thriveworks psychiatrists can make online appointments with clients to do medication management, discuss emotional or behavioral symptoms, and diagnose mental health conditions. Mental health counselors, on the other hand, cannot prescribe medication. But they can work closely with clients to alleviate symptoms and improve daily functioning.
