And there is no shame or embarrassment to be found in receiving this help.

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).

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support. Our experience with Thriveworks has been excellent, and we are happy to offer our highest review and recommendation for anyone looking to make parenting just a bit easier.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
