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 Dallas, 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 Dallas 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?

What comes to mind when you think about your health? You probably think about fitness, managing chronic illnesses, and even maintaining a healthy diet. But did you include mental health on your list? It’s just as important to check in with your mental wellbeing as it is your physical. 

Once you get an ache or pain, it nags at you until you give it proper attention with ice, medication, or a visit to your doctor. Well, what about your stress levels, fulfillment in your day to day activities, or the relationships you hold? It’s important to manage these areas of mental wellbeing just as much as the physical.

Take Crystal, for example. She has a very busy schedule and has to cram family dinner into her daily routine. She wakes up, goes to the gym, eats breakfast, gets ready for work, works 9 hour days, comes home to make dinner, do chores, and then eventually hits the pillow. With that much going on, she hasn’t had time to stop and ask herself how she’s doing mentally. 

Crystal is actually overloaded with stress at home and at work. She wants to eventually go back to school but has no idea how she’s going to juggle another thing. To manage her challenges and get helpful guidance, she decides to work with a psychologist. 

Our licensed psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas, TX are highly trained with the extensive experience and skills needed to help you work through any challenge. They can assist you through relationship issues, family turmoil, the loss of a loved one, and even major life changes. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with us, just call our office to talk to a scheduling specialist and be connected with one of our psychologists.

Why Should I Work with a Psychologist?

As we just touched on, life isn’t always a walk in the park. We get into fights, have problems at work, struggle with mental illness, and even experience traumatic events. While it would be great if those things never happened, they do, and we need to learn how to come back from them the right way. 

Psychologists can prove to be beneficial to so many different people for a myriad of reasons. As you can probably tell by now, there are many reasons why you might want to seek out the help of a mental health professional. Here are a few reasons to start:

  • Learning how to deal with and manage stress and anger
  • Bettering relationships with friends and family members
  • Getting guidance on life direction and career changes
  • Struggling with a mental disorder such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD
  • Healing from a breakup or divorce
  • Grieving the loss of a loved one
  • Dealing with the diagnosis of a physical illness
  • Working through financial stress and strain
  • Coping with major life changes such as moving to a new city or state
  • And much, much more

If you need help with any of the challenges above, or have a different challenge that is having a negative effect on your mental health, consider working with a psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas.

I must take a moment to submit a review for Dr. Geraldine Hickerson! Dr. Hickerson not only has significant experience as a therapist, she also is compassionate about the care provided. Compassion guides the therapist to treat the person as an individual- fully listening and creating a safe space for therapeutic healing. Dr. Hickerson is phenomenal at creating that safe space. I highly recommend her as a trusted therapist.
