What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a clinician using a client centered approach to treatment I make every effort to meet you where you are at in your goals for treatment.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Bernadette Cosgrove is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) who has a strong background in a variety of mental health disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety, and phobias. Bernadette has experience in mental health crisis counseling and feels she is well-equipped for crisis situations should they arise. Bernadette also has experience working with persons who have drug and alcohol addiction concerns. An ideal client for her would be someone over the age of 18 who is dealing with adjustment disorders, phobias, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Bernadette would like to help them better manage their daily lives as she would assume they are coming for treatment because certain aspects of their lives have become unmanageable. She would also have interest in working with young persons going through self-esteem or relationship issues. Bernadette completed her Master of Social Work (MSW) at Salisbury University. She has a strong background in motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and exposure therapy. Bernadette herself overcame many phobias and feels she truly understands where the client is coming from because she has lived in their shoes. She uses a person-centered approach to therapy where a therapeutic alliance will be strongly built so you are held accountable and she can support you and motivate you to the best of her abilities.
