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 Dumont, NJ 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 Dumont 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?

There is a stigma surrounding mental health that can make you feel “weak” when you reach out and ask for help. Maybe you don’t want to talk to a mental health professional because you don’t want it to look like you have a problem. Maybe you don’t think therapy could help. Whatever it is, know there is nothing wrong with going through a tough challenge in life and needing a little extra support. This archaic stereotype surrounding people who go to therapy needs to end. Just as you would reach out for the help of a doctor when you sprain your ankle or start to feel sick, it should be just as normal to ask for the help of a licensed psychologist. They are trained and experienced in helping people overcome their issues to start living a happier, healthier life. There’s no shame in that!

I am a recently retired licensed clinical social worker with 45 plus years of experience in that field of practice. I attended undergraduate school with Michael Martin and have continued to maintain contact with him since that time. Michael has consistently impressed me as a caring, knowledgeable and empathic individual who has brought these traits into his practice as a psychotherapist. He speaks very positively about his work and his satisfaction in assisting the individuals he provides services for on their behalf. In conclusion, I strongly recommend considering Michael as ones' psychotherapist.
