What Is the Difference Between Therapy, Counseling, and Psychiatry?

Therapy, provided by our counselors and therapists, addresses emotional and behavioral challenges using therapeutic techniques for mental well-being. Counseling, offered by counselors or therapists, focuses on specific issues and life adjustments, while psychiatry, led by our psychiatric nurse practitioners, involves diagnosing and treating mental health conditions with medication.

What Are the Types of Therapists You Can See?

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

  • Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHCs): Trained to provide mental health counseling.
  • Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers (LICSWs): Specialized in social work and counseling for individuals, families, and groups.
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs): Focused on relationship and family-related issues.

When you connect with a provider at Thriveworks, you’ll be sharing your experience with an industry-leading expert; someone with the experience and professional insight you need to move forward.

Signs I Should Go to Therapy

  • Frequent mood swings, anger, or irritability
  • Changes in appetite, sleep patterns, or energy levels
  • Unresolved trauma or past experiences affecting your well-being
  • Struggles with addictive behaviors or substance abuse
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Overwhelming feelings of guilt, shame, or worthlessness

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy and In-Person Therapy?

  • Convenience and accessibility from anywhere
  • Reduced travel time and costs
  • Comfortable and familiar environment
  • A wider selection of therapists to choose from

The benefits of in-person therapy include:

  • Face-to-face interaction and non-verbal cues
  • No reliance on internet connection or technology

What Should I Do If a Loved One Needs Help?

If you have a loved one who is in need of mental health services, you can help them by attempting to:

  • Communicate openly and non-judgmentally
  • Offer support and encourage them to seek professional help
  • Research and connect them with appropriate resources
  • Be patient and maintain a supportive presence throughout their journey to recovery

Our experienced therapists, counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners can assist—don’t hesitate to have the individual you love seek help and support.

Are the Therapists at Thriveworks Licensed and Verified to Provide Therapy?

Yes, all of our therapists, counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners are licensed or in the process of receiving their licensure.

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.

Set Up an Appointment at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Waltham

We all struggle—but we don’t all seek the help that we need to overcome these struggles. The counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatric providers, and coaches at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Waltham want to help you overcome your struggles, and they hope you give them that chance. They have the training, the experience, and the skills to help you live a happier, more successful life, whether that means coping with symptoms of a mental illness, improving your relationship with your significant other, or simply making a few small changes in your life that yield big outcomes.

Give Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Waltham a call to schedule an appointment. A scheduling specialist will greet you and get you set up with a provider who can best help you.

For example, if you are experiencing symptoms of depression, they will set you up with a provider who has the expertise and/or experience in treating depression. If, on the other hand, you and your partner are seeking help for your relationship, they will set you up with a couples counselor. Just a few simple questions will enable them to pair you with the right provider.
