Starting Psychiatry/medication

Does Thriveworks offer psychiatric services?

Yes, we offer comprehensive psychiatric services to meet your mental health needs.

How does psychiatry work?

Psychiatry allows people struggling to manage mental conditions or disorders to get access to medications that will make daily functioning easier, as well as work through any mental factors that might be causing or worsening their condition. Though medications can’t cure mental disorders, medication can make symptoms more manageable, making the process of psychotherapeutic treatment easier and more effective. Psychiatric care can be available through in-person psychiatry and online psychiatry, depending on where you live and your own preferences. However, psychiatric providers at Thriveworks in Jacksonville, FL specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist & psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, though they often refer clients to psychiatrists for medication management. Psychiatrists are medically trained doctors who specialize in mental health treatment, mainly through medication management and prescription, though they can also practice therapy.

What is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (NP)?

A Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a highly trained and licensed professional who specializes in mental health care. They are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, prescribe medications, and provide therapy. Psychiatric NPs at Thriveworks are qualified to prescribe medications for a variety of mental health conditions. They work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

How do psychiatric providers diagnose?

Oftentimes, psychiatrists or psychiatric professionals will perform a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which involves an in-depth discussion about your symptoms, medical history, and current medications. Once they reach a diagnosis, they may suggest starting certain medications depending on your condition and the intensity of your symptoms.

Can I receive psychiatric services online?

Yes. At Thriveworks, we offer online-only psychiatry services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Jacksonville can last for as little or as much time as the client needs to reach their treatment goals, whether that be a month or two or over the course of a year. Treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client’s goals for treatment.

Is anxiety treated with psychiatry?

Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication and provide therapeutic treatment for anxiety, although not all psychiatrists offer therapy. At Thriveworks, medication management is via online psychiatry sessions.

Does Thriveworks accept insurance for psychiatric services?

Yes, Thriveworks accepts most major insurance plans. We strive to make mental health care accessible and affordable for everyone.

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed working with Erin. She has my best interest at heart which is very important to me. I love how attentive and empathic Erin is towards my needs, and I am close to meeting my therapeutic goals. I have learned that life is a journey, and we should work on improving ourselves daily. I would most definitely recommend Erin to anyone who may need therapy, and I would work with her again. Thank you, Erin

I was very satisfied with the therapy session that Ms. Erin provided for me. I was initially reluctant to try a online session but she put me at ease!! I am very relieved that my first session was great. Ms. Erin provided great conversation and perspective! I can’t wait until my next session.
