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 Cumming, 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 Cumming 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?

Sometimes, we get intimidated by the idea of seeing a psychologist, a therapist, a counselor. We worry about shame and embarrassment—as mental health stigma is still very much alive in many communities. And we worry about the judgment we might face in treatment. The reality, though, is that psychologists and other mental health professionals are not here to judge us. They’re here to help us. And there is no shame or embarrassment to be found in receiving this help.

“As for the future, it remains unwritten. Anything can happen, and often we are wrong. The best we can do with the future is prepare and savor the possibilities of what can be done in the present.” –Todd Kashdan

What Do Psychologists Do? How Can They Help?

Psychologists have years of graduate school under their belt, as well as supervised training and experience. These are licensed professionals who are able to help clients by providing them with mental health services, be it therapy, counseling, psychological testing, or another service. In any case, the psychologists at Thriveworks have an important goal, which is to help every single client of theirs live better. This will likely mean working through a mental health issue or another major life problem:

  • Mental health issues: You’re familiar with mental health issues. Even if you haven’t had firsthand experience with a mental illness, you likely know someone else who has. We’re talking depression, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, OCD. If you do present symptoms of a mental illness, the Thriveworks Cumming psychologists can offer psychological testing, which involves assessing your symptoms and offering a diagnosis. They can then create a personalized treatment plan that is tailor-made for you. This might involve working with a therapist, starting medication, or both!
  • Other life problems: Mental illness isn’t the only thing that can have a negative impact on our mental health and emotional wellbeing. Other life problems can hurt us too, like relationship issues, work stress, a lack of self-worth, anger management issues, and so on. Again, a psychologist can look at your specific experience, help you better understand the problem at hand, and then guide you in managing said problem.

If you’re struggling mentally or emotionally, please consider meeting with a psychologist. Again, these mental health professionals are not here to judge you. They’re here to do quite the opposite. Our Thriveworks Cumming psychologists will provide you with a safe, comfortable space to talk about your feelings and work through your given challenge(s).
