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 Fort Lauderdale, FL 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 Fort Lauderdale 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?

Psychologists are healthcare providers with specific skills and experience that allow them to assist people with a variety of mental health issues. These include a range of common life challenges, such as stress management and coping after losing a loved one, and mental illnesses like depression and anxiety. These professionals undergo supervised training and come equipped with knowledge learned from multiple years of graduate school.

If you’re in Broward County, Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale, FL is here to help. Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale has skilled, experienced, and trained psychologists on staff who can help you better manage stress, grieve the loss of a loved one, manage a mental illness, and address other challenges. If you’re interested in setting up an appointment and experiencing the benefits of working with a psychologist, reach out to Thriveworks in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Should I Work with a Psychologist?

As you can tell, psychologists prove beneficial to many different people for many different reasons! One individual might decide to work with a psychologist because they have been experiencing anxiety, feeling depressed, or majorly stressed at work. Another individual might pursue work with a psychologist because they’re going through a breakup or divorce and need extra support. Common issues addressed with a psychologist include:

  • Anxiety and depression help
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Breakups and divorce
  • Financial stress
  • The loss of a loved one
  • Work stress
  • Addiction recovery
  • Major life changes

We could keep going, but in all honesty, the list would never end. This shows just how beneficial working with a psychologist can be. Additionally, psychologists have the training to conduct certain assessments and in turn diagnose mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, autism, and more.

What Techniques Are Used by Thriveworks Psychologists?

The Broward psychologists at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale use many techniques to help their clients make meaningful strides in life. Often, they will use therapy, which enables them to look at each individual’s needs and design a customized treatment plan that will best help that person overcome the challenge at hand. This will involve discussing challenges and determining the right path forward.

In certain instances, someone can best benefit from therapy in combination with medication. If this is your case, your psychologist will work with a psychiatric NP.

I recently switched from "Doctors On Demand" to "Thriveworks." I am seeing both a psychiatrist and a talk therapist. Both have thus far been exceptional. My psychiatrist is thorough in evaluating how medications are effecting me and advising possible alternatives if we need to reconsider a course of action. I appreciate his holistic approach to my treatment, probing how diet and other lifestyle choices may impact my emotional well being. My talk therapist listens carefully to me, shares a central theme that emerges from our session and recommends exercises that help delve deeper into issues that impact my ability to cope and thrive. I amvery happy with their service. Thank you.

Pedro is an excellent clinician who's primary concern is his clients wellbeing. He goes above and beyond to provide the best clinical care for his patients, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help assist with their specific needs. The clinical world is far better off having someone like this practicing in the field.
