Starting Psychologists

What is Psychologists?

Psychologists are mental health professionals that provide psychotherapy services and diagnoses for their clients. They have more research-focused training than most therapists, as they are more medically educated and receive a more general education about therapeutic approaches and theory.

How does Psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Anchorage, AK provide standard psychotherapy services, tailoring treatment to each client and their unique concerns. However, they can also provide diagnoses to clients when appropriate, something that therapists and counselors cannot do. Finally, in some states in the U.S., they are allowed to prescribe medication.

Is Psychologists conducted in person or online?

How long does Psychologists last?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Anchorage is very individualized and specific to each client, which means that the duration of treatment is often varied depending on a client's condition or disorder, the state of their symptoms, and their specific goals.

Need more help deciding?

In television shows and movies, you might expect to see a character in a therapy session when they’re at their lowest point. A scene between the character and their therapist might center around revealing a tidy resolution to a particular conflict that the character is facing.

But psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is much more than a few sessions on the path to an easy resolution. When you meet with a licensed psychologist, you spend time figuring out the reality of your mental health — how it impacts your self-perception, relationships, values, and behaviors. Often, ideas or issues you’d never considered on your own come up in sessions.

Psychologists are licensed mental health professionals with specialized education in diagnosing and treating mental illness. Each psychologist may have a specialty area of practice where they have extra training in treating a particular condition, but all psychologists have comprehensive training in helping people manage all kinds of mental health concerns.

Do you want to speak with one of our licensed psychologists? Consider calling our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Anchorage, AK, or setting up an appointment using our convenient online scheduling tool.

Who Should Meet With a Licensed Psychologist?

Clinical psychologists are mental health professionals who have received an advanced degree in psychology. This means they have the training and experience to help clients with a range of mental health needs, from treating severe mental disorders to helping someone through a short-term trauma.

A common misconception about psychotherapy is that you need to be on the verge of a breakdown to reach out for help. Psychologists can help people dealing with severe mental illness, but they can also help people with mild or moderate mental issues, or a general sense of unease without a known cause.

People come to psychotherapy for help figuring out the underlying problems behind symptoms such as:

  • Withdrawal from people, activities, or places that used to bring joy
  • Feelings of depersonalization
  • Reliance on substances like drugs or alcohol
  • Low self-esteem
  • Feelings of isolation and guilt
  • Loss of control over thoughts and emotions
  • Changes in sleep, such as oversleeping or difficulty falling and staying asleep
  • Appetite fluctuations such as under or overeating
  • Strained relationships with your loved ones (friends, family, partners)
  • Trouble moving past a traumatic incident
  • Grief following the loss of a loved one
  • Feeling lost and without purpose in life

If you’ve felt that something is “off,” or you think that you want to talk to someone, consider reaching out to a psychologist from Thriveworks Counseling in Anchorage, AK. They’ll work with you to help you live a happier, healthier life.

Psychology Appointments: What to Expect

Working with a psychologist in therapy sessions can teach you a lot about yourself and the way you think. Each person’s experience with their mental health is unique, and your mental health treatment plan will be unique to you.

Psychologists cater each client’s treatment to their specific needs. This might mean that they draw heavily on a particular type of therapy, like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is frequently used for clients dealing with anxiety or depressive disorders. They might also combine methods from CBT with other types of therapy, like psychodynamic therapy or interpersonal therapy.

Above all else, psychotherapy is a dedicated time for you to focus on yourself each week. No matter what issue you’re dealing with, taking the time to understand yourself and articulate the values and needs that are important to you in life can significantly impact your sense of self and happiness.

Working with a psychologist can help you endure a difficult time in your life or work through a challenging health issue you’re experiencing. If you’re living with symptoms that are making life more difficult, call us at Thriveworks in Anchorage, AK, to set up a psychology appointment.

I am former senior law enforcement officer in western Alaska. I found Behavioral Health Services could absolutely benefit people everywhere. Especially, in remote areas of Alaska. Jenifer Morton has experience and training to assist clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, chemical dependency, PTSD or Trauma related issues just as a few. Alaska needs more professionals with Jennifer Morton’s experience.

Dr Sjofn Weisner is a very kind and caring therapist. She helped me figure out my feelings of being stuck and helped me make decisions that have effectively directed my life in a more positive direction. I've lost weight, started running, I got out of a bad relationship and now am in a good and caring relationship. I'm understanding that i can make better choices in life. This has been thanks to her guidance and genuine understanding and support. She is fully committed to assisting me in achieving my goals with enthusiasm and optimism.

Dr. Sjofn Weisner worked to help me reframe my perspective and access a deeper part of myself that I didn't realize was there. I completed two sessions with Sjofn and was amazed by my results. Sjofn has a very warm, caring, and personable demeanor that radiates through her services. I will definitely continue to see Sjofn for my future sessions.
