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 Fargo, ND 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 Fargo 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?

Taking care of your mental health isn’t always easy. Your schedule is beyond jam-packed with work, school, caring for family, running a household, and other responsibilities. Some days, you feel like you barely have time for a shower or a meal, so when do you fit in time for a session with your mental health professional?

When life gets hectic, it can be easy to neglect your mental health or sweep it under the rug for next week, next month, or… when, exactly? But this doesn’t always work out well, especially if you are already struggling with mental health issues or going through a challenging phase of life. Your mental health is important, and it affects your relationships, daily life, and overall wellbeing.

Sometimes the pressure and expectations of life can be heavy. You may become overwhelmed with your responsibilities or managing challenges and changes. Past experiences, mental illness, or relationship issues can resurface and pose a threat to your daily life or relationships. It’s okay to ask for help when things get hard, and a psychologist can provide the support you need.

A licensed psychologist can provide comprehensive care for your mental health, guide you through a difficult period, and teach you how to cope with the mental health issues you’re facing. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling in Fargo, ND, are experienced, compassionate, and ready to help you regain and maintain control of your mental health. Contact our office today to schedule your first appointment.

Should I Consider Working With a Psychologist?

Psychologists help people from all walks of life manage a wide variety of mental health issues, and they can be your ally in navigating an exciting new period of life. Whether you’re struggling with a depressive disorder or managing the stress of beginning a new job, a psychologist can help you cope with difficult thoughts or emotions and plan your next steps.

Some common reasons people pursue psychological treatment include:

  • Major life changes
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Mood or personality disorders
  • LGBTQ+ issues
  • Trauma or PTSD
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Relationship or family issues
  • Grief and loss

This isn’t a complete list of reasons why people choose to work with a psychiatrist. If you’re experiencing any of these problems or struggling with something else entirely, consider working with a licensed psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Fargo, ND.

What to Expect From Psychological Treatment

A licensed psychologist is a highly qualified mental health professional who has undergone extensive education and training to acquire the skills needed to diagnose, treat, and manage a wide variety of mental health issues. Most psychologists hold a doctorate degree and additional training in a specialty area such as child psychology or depression therapy.

Working with a psychologist is a highly personalized experience tailored around the specific issues you are facing, your concerns, experiences, and personality. A psychologist will assess all aspects of your current emotional state and symptoms to determine what treatment plan will be most beneficial.

Your treatment plan will be specific and unique and will likely include one or multiple forms of talk therapy. Some common types of talk therapy that your psychologist may recommend include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Humanistic therapy
  • Exposure therapy

Your psychologist may also include prescription medication, lifestyle adjustments, and other therapeutic techniques in your treatment plan and might make adjustments as you work your way through therapy. The duration and frequency of therapy sessions may vary and change based on your experiences and progress.

You can overcome the challenges before you and get the most out of life, and a licensed psychologist at Thriveworks in Fargo, ND, can help you take the first steps. You can schedule your first appointment online or by calling our friendly scheduling team for assistance.
