Thriveworks, a nationwide counseling service, is planning to open a new office in McLean sometime within the next few weeks.
The new offices will be located at 1311 Dolley Madison Blvd, at the northern end of McLean’s downtown.
Mike Reffner, executive director of franchise development, said the lease is secured and the space is built out. The company is working on the final few touches before they roll in and open up, he said.
Reffner said Thriveworks sets itself apart from other counseling services by offering quick access.
“If you call today, you can get an appointment within the week,” Reffner said. “If you’re in a situation where you really need to see somebody, in many cases you can get same-day interviews.”
Reffner also said one of the goals of Thriveworks is to work with insurance plans to keep counseling prices affordable.
Thriveworks has more locations in Virginia than any other state, and Reffner said he saw McLean as the perfect opportunity for expansion.
“McLean is a great area,” Reffner said. “It’s a place where people are doing well, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need mental health supports. Everyone should have access to a mental health provider.”
