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. I do my best to get clients to feel better about their lives in the shortest amount of time possible, and to have lasting results.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Stephen McGough specializes in cognitive behavioral/ACT approaches for a variety of issues from anxiety to depression, negative self-talk, and motivation problems. Steve completed his Master of Counseling Psychology at the University of North Texas. He also completed his internship in Southern California with a UC Davis program. Steve utilizes multiple treatment approaches including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). "When we are in the midst of difficulty, it is difficult to see the solution or way out," says Stephen. "We all need a little extra support from time to time."
