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 Jackson, MS 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 Jackson 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.

What Is a Psychologist? What Can They do for Me?

As touched on briefly, psychologists are trained mental health professionals who have the knowledge and skills to help you reach your goals and overcome hardships. When you work with one of our psychologists, they will take time to assess what’s going on so they start building a treatment plan that is custom to you. It’s important to address your specific needs in a way that makes sense to you. Every person is unique and every treatment plan should be too!

Psychologists utilize a variety of methods and techniques to help you achieve things like better communication skills, problem-solving skills, management techniques, stressor identification knowledge, and more. 

In instances where a client might benefit from taking medication for their mental illness, a psychologist will work closely with their primary care provider and/or psychiatrist to ensure the proper medication is administered. If you think that you might be a good fit for medication, discuss this with your Thriveworks psychologist.
