Scott has always struggled with anxiety. It started when he was a teenager but it’s continued to follow him through his adult life. In the past, he managed it through a healthy diet, exercise, and mindfulness practices. However, things have changed recently. Scott was excited to receive a promotion at work but his new position is incredibly stressful. He’s struggling to lead team meetings and he stays up late at night worrying over the smallest work mistakes.
Have you ever felt like Scott — struggling with a mental health issue and looking for help? We want you to know that support is available. Working with a psychiatrist can help you overcome the mental health concerns you’re facing and find a path forward.
Psychiatry refers to a field of medicine that’s focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental health issues. Psychiatrists are medical doctors that can help treat mental disorders, emotional issues, and behavioral disorders using psychotherapy, prescription medications, or a combination of the two. Every psychiatrist is a highly-trained medical professional with the knowledge to help you overcome your challenges and help you prioritize your mental wellness.

What Can a Psychiatrist Treat?
One of the biggest myths about psychiatry is that it’s only for people with severe mental health issues. The reality is much different — psychiatrists can help people with mild mental disorders, severe mental illnesses, or those who are just going through a tough time in their lives.
Psychiatrists learn how to treat a wide variety of psychological problems during their time in medical school. Our psychiatrists offer services including:
- Depression and mood disorder therapy
- Anxiety and panic disorder therapy
- Child, adolescent, and teen therapy
- Anger management
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) therapy
- Borderline personality disorder (BPD) therapy
- Eating disorder counseling
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) therapy
- Bipolar disorder therapy
Our psychiatrists are experts in helping people prioritize their mental wellbeing and work through the mental health issues they’re facing. If you want to work with one of our online psychiatrists, call our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Fairfield, CA today.
What To Expect From Psychiatric Treatment
Working with a psychiatrist is similar to working with other types of mental health professionals. They’ll use the first session to get to know you, the symptoms you’re facing, and your goals for treatment. The information you give them will form the base of a personalized treatment plan that will be implemented over future sessions.
Most treatment plans will involve some form of psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy. Psychotherapy involves a series of guided conversations between client and provider that can help you understand your state of mind, learn healthy mental habits, and reduce the symptoms of a mental health issue. This process can be long-term or short-term depending on your needs
As medical school graduates, psychiatrists are able to prescribe medications for their clients, which is an important part of some treatment plans. Not everyone who works with a psychiatrist will need medication, but medications can help some people reduce the symptoms of a mental disorder and make treatment much more effective. If your psychiatrist recommends medication, they’ll make sure that you understand any potential side effects and benefits before you start.
