Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are 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 do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Arnold, MO 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.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Arnold 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?

Our mental health is a complicated, precious part of us. We should care for it as we do for our bodies, our work life, and our families. But we often put off addressing our mental health concerns. It might be hard to admit our flaws or we might think nobody else will understand our issues. And as a result, we don’t allow ourselves to get one percent better each day.

If you face anxiety, depression, or another form of mental illness, consider making an appointment with a counseling psychologist. The licensed mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Arnold, MO can help you address the situations or symptoms that are taking a toll on your life. We are trained to help people just like you live happier, more fulfilling lives — lives that can get better each and every day, even if by just one percent. If you think you could benefit from working with a psychologist, reach out to Thriveworks Arnold today.

When Should Someone Consider Seeing a Psychologist?

Licensed psychologists are trained to guide people through their issues toward a resolution. Perhaps you have experienced a traumatic loss, such as the death of a loved one, or face severe anxiety. Many issues can lead you to seek counseling from a licensed psychologist.

Here are some common situations that may prompt you to speak with a psychologist:

  • Family and relationship issues
  • Chronic fears or phobias
  • Substance abuse or other forms of addiction
  • Feeling hopeless or apathetic
  • Anger that doesn’t pass or seems extreme for the situation
  • Acute and/or chronic fatigue
  • Withdrawing from work or relationships
  • Eating disorders or body image issues
  • Abuse or trauma
  • Behavioral problems
  • Panic attacks
  • Depression or anxiety disorders

What Does Psychological Treatment Involve?

Psychologists use a variety of talk therapy options to explore what contributes to mental health issues. One common form of talk therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which examines the way our own thought patterns can negatively influence our emotions and behaviors.

Working with a licensed psychologist offers many benefits. They can help you understand your issues, learn coping and communication skills, and increase your self-confidence. Ultimately, they can help you live a happier and healthier life.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
