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 Kailua, HI 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 Kailua 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?

Mental health professionals like psychologists regularly assist people in taking care of their mental wellbeing. Recognizing that you’re ready to ask for help working through your mood disorder is an empowering first step towards a happier, healthier future.

Could meeting with a psychologist help you to turn your life around? Consider calling or booking an appointment at our Thriveworks Counseling office located in Kailua, HI.

Why Do People Contact Psychologists?

No two people go through the world the same way. We come from different families, practice different faiths, choose different careers, and enjoy different hobbies. While mood disorders can invoke diverse experiences and reactions in people, there are common hurdles that let people know that it may be time to consider seeking counseling from a licensed psychologist:

  • Insomnia or irregular sleeping patterns
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Panic attacks
  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Discontent and apathy
  • Drastic changes in mood
  • Suspected symptoms of depression
  • Suspected symptoms of anxiety
  • Strained relationships
  • Trust or intimacy issues
  • Major life transitions
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Grief or loss
  • Disordered eating
  • Addiction or substance abuse
  • Trouble with unhealthy habits

What to Expect from Therapy Sessions

When someone pursues psychological treatment, their provider creates a safe and soothing space where they can voice their needs and share vulnerable moments. Together, they’ll determine a reasonable plan of action to achieve the person’s goals.

A psychologist may use methods such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help improve a person’s mental health and quality of life. If a condition like major depressive disorder is present, a psychologist may work alongside a psychiatrist, who can prescribe medications like mood stabilizers.

If your mental health is affected by your close relationships, for example, your psychologist may recommend family therapy or couples counseling so you and your loved ones can resolve conflict as a team and form stronger emotional ties.

The benefits of working with a psychologist include:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Coping strategies for stress or grief
  • Greater fulfillment in relationships
  • New perspective of chronic concerns
  • Better understanding of your own mind

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.
