Starting Psychologists

What is 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 does Psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Gainesville, 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.

Is Psychologists conducted in person or online?

How long does Psychologists last?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Gainesville 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?

Gracie recently quit talking to her father, with whom she has had a rocky relationship with for some time. Although she loves her dad, he was physically abusive when she was a girl and has never taken responsibility for his actions. He’s continued to be critical, negative, and unwilling to open up emotionally. After her last attempt to talk with him about how his behavior harmed her, Gracie realized that she may be better off without him in her life. Still, the decision hasn’t been easy, and she’s wracked with guilt and confusion: Did she make the right choice? 

To think through this major life change, Gracie wants to talk to a psychologist, someone she hopes will be able to help her understand why she and her father are unable to get along. Though she wants him in her life, she hopes that a psychologist’s guidance and support will help her know what to do more with her father’s behavior. It may be some time before she understands her family life with more clarity, but she knows that attending counseling sessions is the first step. 

Like Gracie, you might also be looking to confide in a psychologist for assistance with your mental health needs. At Thriveworks in Gainesville, FL we have psychologists who are ready to partner with you, helping you prioritize your emotional wellbeing and offering you personalized coping strategies. 

How Can a Psychologist Assist Me?

  • Major life transitions such as marriage, divorce, death, or financial issues 
  • Anger management 
  • Family or relationship problems
  • Grief and loss
  • ADHD 
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • And many other problems 

Psychologists can help with a lot—but it’s important to talk candidly with them so that they can fully understand your situation and how they can better assist you.

Should I Talk with a Psychologist Virtually?

With virtual therapy and counseling from Thriveworks, it’s easier than ever to put your mental health needs first.
