Therapy, Psychiatry, and Mental Health Services at Thriveworks in Toms River, NJ

Let’s be honest: Life isn’t always pretty. Sometimes, it’s downright ugly, as we work through the anger, the stress, the disappointment, that we might experience on any given day. But you know what? That’s totally okay and normal. We all have bad days and that’s never going to change. What can change is how we respond to the bad days and our strategy for working through the challenges we encounter. One specific response and strategy that can prove extremely beneficial is talking to a counselor or another mental health professional.

“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.”

–Linda Poindexter

How Does Counseling Work at Thriveworks?

At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Toms River, we set out to meet an important mission: to help people live happy, successful lives. For us, this means getting to know each and every client on an individual level and then designing treatment with their unique needs, goals, and preferences in mind. You can expect your provider to ask you a few basic questions, which will help them get to know you a little better, such as:

  1. Why have you decided to pursue counseling or life coaching?
  2. What are you hoping to get out of this journey?
  3. What goals do you have for yourself?
  4. Have you gone to counseling before?

After your provider better understands how they can help you, they will design a plan of treatment. This plan might involve difficult (yet rewarding) conversations during sessions, homework in the form of self-care or self-exploration, and more. Again, this is determined on a person-to-person basis. Nevertheless, you can count on working with a skilled, caring, and supportive mental health professional who has your best interest at heart.

Remember, we also have psychiatrists you can partner with. These professionals can prescribe and manage medication to those struggling with a severe or persistent mental health condition. They are able to work in tandem with your therapist or counselor to offer cohesive treatment.

Should I Talk With an Online Psychiatrist? 

Talking to a psychiatrist is most likely an independent decision that you’ll need to make on your own. However, anyone can benefit from talking with a mental health professional, including a psychiatrist. If you’re not familiar with what a psychiatrist is, they’re unique in that they: 

  • Are medical doctors, in addition to often being licensed mental health professionals
  • Can prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the harmful symptoms of mental health conditions 
  • Often the preferred treatment method for emotional or behavioral conditions such as major depression or ADHD

Not everyone who talks with a psychiatrist will be prescribed medication; your treatment will depend on your own preferences and needs. By talking openly about what’s bothering you, you can help to provide your Thriveworks psychiatrist with the information they need to help you manage your mental health challenges. 

 You may also consider our psychiatric services if you’re suffering from the symptoms of: 

  • ADHD 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • And many other mental health conditions

Truly the best of the best!

Thriveworks is great and really cares for clients, I fully recommend them! And I honestly cannot say enough good things about Sharon Ryan. I never feel wrong, crazy, or judged while speaking with her. She is so comforting and provides excellent, accurate insights. I really appreciate her interest and understanding as well as her flexibility for appointments. I’ve been struggling with losing interest in hobbies that I once loved. With Sharon’s help, I’ve developed new interests I’ve always wanted to try and expanded my horizons. Thank you so much, truly, from the bottom of my heart!

I recommend checking out Thriveworks to find a mental health care provider that can suit your needs. The owners are sweet, genuine people who make it their mission to help others by connecting therapists and those who want a little guidance. Your mental health is important (especially these days) and you don't need to being in a crisis to see a therapist! In fact, its better to seek out a therapist before you can't cope on your own.
