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 Corpus Christi, 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.

Is Psychologists conducted in person or online?

How long does Psychologists last?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Corpus Christi 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?

The writer William Gibson once wrote, “When you want to know how things really work, study them when they’re coming apart.” Sometimes people don’t seek the mental health support they need until they’re at their breaking point. And problems can be very informative! But professional psychotherapy is also a useful tool for preventing psychological hardships down the road. Whether you’re suffering from clinical depression or just need a mental health pick-me-up because life is feeling stressful or overwhelming, psychologists can help.

Our highly qualified, top-rated team of mental health providers like therapists and counselors offer their clients the expert and compassionate guidance they need to be the best version of themselves. 

How Is a Psychologist Different from a Psychiatrist?

Psychologists differ from psychiatrists in several ways, but for the purposes of Thriveworks therapy in Corpus Christi, TX, the main difference is that psychiatrists (medical doctors, or MDs) can prescribe psychotropic medication like antidepressants and psychologists can’t. Psychologists usually have a PsyD or a PhD after their name. They can be clinical or counseling psychologists. All of the psychologists at Thriveworks in Corpus Christi, TX are licensed to provide psychotherapy treatments. You may also encounter these other mental health providers on the Thriveworks roster: 

  • Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), who provide counseling and guidance for local social services

  • Psychotherapists, which is an umbrella term for any counselors, social workers, psychologists, or psychiatrists who provide psychotherapy 
  • Telepsychiatrists (MDs), who are psychiatrists who provide online psychiatry services
  • Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), who provide couples counseling and family counseling
  • Licensed chemical dependency counselors (LCDCs) and alcohol and drug counselors (ADCs), who provide substance abuse counseling

Our mental health providers are all colleagues, and they can refer you to another Thriveworks specialist if you need a different kind of help. 

How Do I Know When I Should See a Psychologist?

Seeing a psychologist is an extremely personal decision, but it’s not one that anyone should spend too much time fretting over. People in great mental health with no acute issues see psychologists all the time because they just want someone to talk to who’s not a friend or family member. That being said, clients also seek out psychologists at Thriveworks in Corpus Christi, TX for problems that can actively interfere with their lives, such as the following:

  • Mild to severe depression
  • Social anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Anorexia and bulimia
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Acute stress
  • Anger management
  • Family or couples conflicts
  • Caregiver burnout
  • Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Overwhelming feelings
