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 Carrollton, TX 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 Carrollton 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?

We all have our negative moments: being late for work, spilling coffee in our lap, the loss of a loved one, and nagging health conditions. These all sound pretty normal right? But what happens when these things start to pile up without being dealt with? 

Many of us assume that feeling down, overwhelmed, or frustrated is just part of life. And to a certain extent, it is. But when negative thoughts and emotions interfere with work, play, and our relationships, it might be time to consider seeking assistance. Eventually, many people find that avoiding problems only makes them worse. 

That’s where psychologists can help. As mental health professionals who are experienced in treating and identifying solutions to different cognitive issues, Thriveworks psychologists can assist clients by lending a helping hand and new perspective to the challenges that they may be faced with. You deserve a personalized treatment plan and a personalized connection with our trained team of mental health professionals. 

At Thriveworks of Carrollton, TX, we’ve found that therapy can help just about anyone, at any stage in their life. And we have our psychologists to thank for that. But if you’re not familiar with counseling or mental health services, psychologists might seem pretty alien to you. So before we welcome you to our team of trained experts, we’d like to tell you a little bit about what it is they do. 

Psychologists: What They Do and How They Help

Psychologists are mental health professionals that work with their clients to help them process difficult emotions and events in their personal lives. Some common mental health issues that our psychologists assist individuals with include: 

  • Anxiety, or obsessive thoughts 
  • Regulating emotions 
  • Dealing with the loss of a friend or loved one 
  • Relationship issues and difficulty communicating 
  • Problems related to low self-esteem or self-worth 
  • Stress that’s related to work or finances 
  • Depression 

If you or someone that you know is experiencing any of the following, consider booking an appointment with one of our psychologists today. And if you don’t see a description of what you’re experiencing, don’t worry. We understand that every client is different— and our psychologists are trained to listen.

One important difference between our psychologists and our psychiatrists is that psychologists are qualified to conduct therapy sessions but are not able to prescribe medication like a psychiatrist would be. At our Carrollton office, you’ll be matched with the counseling approach that best suits your individual needs. Psychologists can specialize in different types of therapy and are able to help clients through the one-on-one, or group sessions that they conduct. 

Book an Appointment With a Psychologist

At Thriveworks, we ensure that every part of the therapy process is tailored to be as simple as possible. When you call our office to book your appointment and enroll, you’ll be greeted with a human voice as our client specialists assist you in finding the right time to fit your schedule. When you book with Thriveworks, you receive industry-leading benefits, including: 

  • Online therapy options (messaging, phone, and video)
  • Flexible cancellation options 
  • Evening and weekend sessions
  • Access to your provider between sessions as needed 

Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service by making your happiness our number one priority. There’s nothing wrong with utilizing mental health services to start taking the right steps forward. Your personal life doesn’t need to suffer any longer. Let our psychologists guide you towards a better tomorrow, and find peace of mind with Thriveworks.
