John McAnulty is by far the best counselor that I have ever experienced. He is kind, compassionate and caring. He heard every word I would say and gave me so many tools that I use to this day to cope with my past struggles. He takes his time to not only listen, but to respond in the most caring way. I will forever be grateful for all he did for my family and I.

While availability may vary, at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Virginia Beach, we offer:

  • Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs): Specialized in social work and counseling for individuals, families, and groups.

How Much Does Therapy Cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session (for both in-person and online sessions) depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Schedule an Appointment with a Licensed Thriveworks Psychiatrist

If you’re struggling with a mood disorder, personality disorder, substance abuse, or another mental health issue, psychiatric care may offer the help you need. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor that can take mental and physical factors into account when it comes to diagnosis and treatment.

Treating mental and emotional disorders may involve a combination of psychotherapy (talk therapy) and medication, which a psychiatric professional can prescribe like a medical doctor. Talk therapy involves expressing your thoughts and emotions to a mental health professional who can listen and provide helpful input.
