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 Cedar Rapids, IA 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 Cedar Rapids 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?

You go to the doctor when you’re sick. You try to get enough sleep, eat well, and stay active. You care for your physical health but what about your mental health? It is just as important to our well-being, yet many people push mental health issues on the back burner where they simmer until they are finally ready to boil over.

There are many reasons why people don’t prioritize their mental health. They may feel embarrassed to admit they have a problem or they may think they don’t have the time to fit counseling sessions into their busy schedules.

But at Thriveworks, our caring psychologists make it easy to take the first step. We offer remote therapy appointments seven days a week so you can squeeze us in without ever stepping foot outside your home or office. Simply pick up the phone or open a video chat link and you’ll be on your way to taking control of your life again.

Whether you’re struggling with mood swings, anxiety, depression, or something else entirely, or clinical psychologists are ready to help you build a better life. Reach out to schedule an appointment at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA today.

When Should I See a Psychologist?

A psychologist is skilled to treat a wide range of disorders. They can treat mild cases of anxiety and depression, and they can also work to treat more severe conditions like borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.

Here are some of the reasons people reach out to a licensed psychologist:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Anger and stress management issues
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Trauma
  • Sexual, physical, or emotional abuse
  • Addictive behaviors
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Major life transitions
  • Low self-worth or body image issues
  • Behavioral issues

If you’re experiencing one or more of these conditions, don’t hesitate to contact Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA. When you’re ready for counseling, we’re ready to support you through your mental health journey.

How Can a Psychologist Help?

A licensed psychologist may hold a variety of degrees. After earning a bachelor’s degree, many go on to receive a master’s in behavioral analysis, counseling psychology, and/or clinical psychology. This extensive education gives them the ability to diagnose and treat many kinds of mental and emotional disorders.

As part of your counseling, a Thriveworks psychologist may use one or more forms of talk therapy to help you work through your struggles. Some examples of this could include:

  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT encourages clients to learn coping mechanisms to more effectively regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and reduce self-destructive behaviors.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT focuses on challenging and reframing harmful thought processes in order to make behavioral changes and mitigate symptoms.
  • Art therapy: Art therapy uses art and creativity to help people relieve stress and identify underlying issues.

Other forms of therapy include interpersonal therapy, exposure therapy, and psychoanalysis. If your psychologist feels medication may be beneficial alongside therapy, they may refer you to a Thriveworks psychiatrist who can make that determination.

Working with a psychologist can help you lead a happier life, build stronger relationships, and take back your passions and hobbies once again. Click or call to schedule an appointment with the licensed clinical psychologists at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA.

Susan is a compassionate, inspirational, and insightfull therapist. She helped me through the toughest moments of my life and taught me techniques to enjoy living, rather than just scraping by. It seems like a lot of therapists are leaving this location recently. Susan is the best, my quality of life has dramatically improved with her guidance. I strongly recommend her to anyone in need.

I work with Susan, who is kind, understanding, and easy to talk to. She's helping me learn techniques to manage my anxiety, and for the first time in my adult life, I feel like I have a sense of control and can handle any curveballs thrown my way. I've only just started seeing her recently but have already seen a huge improvement in my mood and day-to-day life. Susan is awesome to work with and I highly recommend her!
