Psychiatry in Atlanta – Mental Healthcare Services

*Unfortunately, we are not able to offer psychiatry or medication management to new clients at this time. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and hope to have availability soon. We do, however, have counseling, therapy, and coaching appointments available now!

When you or a loved one is in need of mental health care, sometimes a counselor is appropriate, but at other times, a medical doctor is needed — known as a psychiatrist. Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling has this type of professional available, who has achieved the highest level of training in the mental health field.

For some disorders or situations, prescription medicine is required and can be extremely helpful. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe medication, oversee its usage and adjust as needed.

There are many areas in which a psychiatrist can be helpful. These include:

  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Autism and other developmental disorders

While the perception is that psychiatrists are for the most severe mental health problems, this type of professional is also useful in a wide range of problems with functioning in daily life. They simply have the additional ability to prescribe medication, and have a great deal of training in order to help you process your issues and improve your mental status.

Thriveworks Atlanta Counseling psychiatrists are leaders in their field. Our professionals have been published in leading journals and news outlets. We accept many health insurance plans, and have staff able to assist with financial planning for your treatment. Making that first call for help is often difficult. We respect that it may have taken a long time to make the decision to reach out. For this reason, we have appointments available within 24 hours for new clients.

It would be our pleasure to walk with you on this journey of healing. Call us today at 404-719-4233, and let’s get started.
