Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are 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 do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Evergreen Park, IL 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.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Evergreen Park 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?

Gavin recently came out of a long-term relationship, and since then, he’s had difficulty recovering from the breakup. Though he has a support network of friends and family to lean upon, he doesn’t have the same level of connection with anyone else as he did with his ex-girlfriend. While he’s not interested in re-starting their relationship, Gavin isn’t sure how to work through the loss and sadness he feels without her. During the many years they spent together, Gavin grew used to having his ex to talk with. 

After doing some thinking, he’s considering whether or not he should talk to a psychologist about the negative emotions stemming from his breakup. While Gavin feels anxious about connecting with someone unfamiliar to discuss what’s been going on, he’s also aware that it could be a way for him to prioritize his mental health and personal goals. Gavin also knows that if he’s willing to be open, a psychologist could be an ally—one that helps him explore the roots of his grief. 

Maybe you can relate to Gavin and are also looking to connect with a psychologist. At Thriveworks in Evergreen Park, IL we know that anyone, at any point in their lives can benefit from talking with someone from our team of psychologists. Doing so can help you balance your emotional wellbeing, as you gain access to a psychologist’s professional insight and guidance. 

Should I Talk to a Thriveworks Psychologist? 

As we mentioned, anyone can benefit from talking with our psychologists. Yet with that in mind, everyone’s mental health needs are different, so being candid and honest with your psychologist about what’s wrong can help them understand your situation more clearly. Some of the common issues and conditions that our psychologists can assist you in managing include: 

  • Anger issues
  • Marital problems
  • Anxiety and stress 
  • Family disagreements
  • Divorce and breakups

These are only a few of the many different scenarios or situations that a psychologist can help you to alleviate. To get a psychologist’s perspective and support, call our office in Evergreen Park, IL to start forming a connection with a provider who can empathize and engage with you one-on-one.  

How Can a Psychologist Help Me?
