Referrals or Request Services

Due to extremely high demand for our services, Thrive Behavioral Health has limited appointments available.

I understand:

  • Thrive strives to match therapist and clients who are a good match in order for the work we do together to be successful.
  • Our Rosedale and Catonsville offices currently do not have openings for in person services unless in a school that we have a partnership with.
  • Most available appointments are for telehealth and before 3 p.m.
  • Depending on availability and clinical match, Thrive MAY be able to assign for in-person services in our office OR for telehealth before 5 p.m. Once an evaluation is completed, we can work to match you with a therapist with this availability, but can not guarantee afternoon/evening or in-person and may have to defer to telehealth appointments during the day time.
  • Psychiatric Evaluations (first appointment with psychiatrist or nurse practitioner for medication evaluation) will be in-person as of August 2022 (subject to change).

If the above availability does not work for you, the following agencies may be able to assist you:

Leading by Example 410-780-2692

Advanced Behavioral Health 301-345-1022

Villa Maria 667-600-3900

Thrive will contact the client and/or referral source within one week of receiving the referral to begin the intake process. Once assigned, the intake therapist will schedule an initial intake evaluation with the client. After completing the evaluation, it may take up to two weeks for a primary therapist to be assigned. In the time between the initial evaluation and assignment to a primary therapist, the intake clinician is available for therapy visits as needed or requested.
