Reaching out for help (let alone admitting you need help) can be difficult. But it’s also important. If you are struggling to meet a challenge that is negatively affecting your mental health and wellbeing, think about reaching out to Thriveworks Wellington. We can connect you with a counselor, therapist, or life coach who will help you better manage any challenges you face and ultimately accomplish the mission of finding greater happiness and success.

How Can a Counselor at Thriveworks Wellington Help Me?

You don’t have to have an issue so pressing that it is wreaking complete havoc on your life (though, we’re happy and eager to help in that instance too). Maybe there are a few problems that are leading to some minor anxiety. Or maybe you just haven’t been feeling like yourself and you’d like a professional’s take on the matter. In any instance, a provider at Thriveworks Wellington can help you. That said, there are a handful of issues that are common in counseling:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Trauma
  • Problematic habits
  • Career changes

The counselors, therapists, and life coaches at Thriveworks Wellington are dedicated mental health providers. They want to help you get passed the obstacles that are obstructing your view of and your accessibility to a healthy, fulfilling life. And they have the skills as well as the experience to make this journey a successful one. Here are a couple examples of how they might help a client:

  1. Christopher is one of those people who thrives in large groups of people. He loves to be the center of attention and will do just about anything to get a laugh out of you. But nobody has seen or heard from him lately. He hasn’t responded in the group chat in weeks, and he’s ignored phone calls from his parents and siblings. When his brother decides to drop by, he finds Chris laying idly on the couch. Chris barely greets or acknowledges his brother. After an hour or so of convincing, Christopher recognizes that he hasn’t been himself lately. He agrees to talk to a therapist. After a few sessions, he realizes and accepts that he’s depressed. And he opens himself to his therapist’s help, who offers tools and techniques for managing his depression. For example, he learns how to knock down his negative thoughts and challenge his unwillingness to get out of bed or off the couch.
  2. Alyssa decided it was time to welcome new experiences. After years of isolating herself from the world that existed outside of her hometown, she made her move. She flew across the country and landed in Southern California. Here, there was more hustle and bustle than she was used to. While she found the idea of a fast-paced lifestyle intriguing back home, she now felt nervous and hesitant to immerse herself in it. After a few weeks of pushing herself to step out of her comfort zone (and remaining on her couch in her tiny apartment instead), Alyssa decided to consult a life coach. Quickly, her life coach helped her to accept her nerves and finally push herself past her self-perceived limits. She capitalized on her love for basketball and joined a local rec league, which introduced her to a new group of friends. Additionally, she decided to utilize her new independence and focus on self-improvement, which she put on the backburner when we lived back home with her family.

Depression

★★★★★
I believe my depression is coming from the lack of education, I have and the loss of so many jobs. It's finding but hard to keep a job. I'm embarrassed it has been hindering me for many years now I can't stand it I've been trying to get help for a while now and don't know where to go I am on suppression medication.

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

★★★★★
It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
