Prior to starting any medication, be sure to talk to your provider about any questions you may have, fully understand when and how much of the medication to take, and any other medications you are currently taking. ADHD, depression, and anxiety are just a few of the mental disorders that could find great benefits in medication management. If you are already taking a medication or feel like you might benefit from starting one, reach out to our office and we will set you up with a psychiatrist today.

Should I Speak to a Licensed Psychiatrist?

Psychiatric counseling is an effective path to wellness for many who struggle with mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who study the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental and emotional conditions. This includes a wide variety of disorders and mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, and others.

Some mental disorders have both physical and mental components. In these instances, a psychiatrist’s expertise may be particularly valuable. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication, offer self-care advice, conduct psychotherapy, and handle psychological testing.

If you are interested in speaking to a licensed psychiatrist, contact Thriveworks Counseling today to make a virtual appointment.
