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 Athens, GA 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 Athens 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?

Terry dreamed about moving to a new city his entire high school career. And he didn’t waste any time. A few short weeks after graduating, he made his move. Terry was excited to meet new people and explore his new surroundings. But this hasn’t exactly gone as planned. 

He’s struggling to meet new people outside of work, and he feels nervous about exploring on his own. This has led to his spending most of his free time in his quiet apartment. Terry quickly starts to feel depressed and wonders if he made the wrong decision.

Major life changes, such as Terry’s move, can be difficult to adjust to. When we are forced to step outside of our comfort zones, we can struggle with a range of emotions from sadness to stress, anxiety, and more. And when we fail to adjust well, we can even begin to experience symptoms of depression and anxiety. 

Fortunately, during times like these, working with a psychologist can help us. Psychologists are mental health professionals who are skilled and trained to assist their clients with a variety of life challenges, including major life changes and mental illness.
