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 Frederick, MD 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 Frederick 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.

That being said, here is a more comprehensive list of reasons why people seek the help of a psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Frederick, MD:

What Techniques Are Used by Psychologists?

As we mentioned before, psychologists are highly trained and equipped with a broad range of techniques and tools to help their clients improve their wellbeing and achieve greater overall happiness. When starting to work with one of these mental health professionals, they will first sit down with you to better understand the issue at hand. Then, with the information they have gathered, will create a custom treatment plan to help you achieve those goals. In order to make progress with your psychologist, you may have to open up about some difficult topics. However, it’ll only benefit you more in the end!

Different psychological and therapeutic techniques and methods can be used such as traditional talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, child therapy, narrative therapy, stress/anger management tools, communication skills, problem-solving skills, and more. In some cases, a combination of counseling and medication is the best course of action. When this is the case, your psychologist will work closely with your primary care provider or psychiatrist to ensure accurate medication is prescribed. If you have any questions about your treatment plan or if you think medication would be a good option for you, bring them up during your counseling session.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
