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 Kennesaw, GA 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 Kennesaw 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.

“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.” –Abraham Maslow

The psychologists at Thriveworks Kennesaw will make sure that you have plenty of tools in your toolbox.

What Is a Psychologist? What Do They Do?

Psychologists are mental health professionals who have professional training, experience, and skills to help people with a range of problems. These professionals use an array of techniques in treatment, based on each individual’s specific circumstances, needs, and goals. The help that they provide can be divided into three main categories:

  1. Help you cope during stressful situations: Psychologists can help you better manage stressful circumstances. For example: say you’ve started a new job, or you’re new to parenting, or you’re struggling financially. All of these circumstances will likely trigger a stressed-out response. Fortunately, if this stress gets out-of-control or hard to manage, a psychologist can help. They have stress management tools that can help you now and years down the road.
  2. Diagnose and offer treatment for mental health conditions: This is another important job of theirs. If you are exhibiting symptoms of a mental illness, say depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder, they can perform psychological testing, offer a diagnosis, and then also develop a treatment plan that’s made with your specific mental health condition in mind.
  3. Assist you with other life challenges: Psychologists help their clients work through other life challenges, too. These include: grieving the loss of a loved one, adjusting during a major life transition, resolving relationship issues, making major career decisions… and the list continues. Psychologists can help you with virtually any problem that is negatively affecting your mental health and wellbeing. In fact, it’s their mission to.

You don’t have to fear judgment at Thriveworks Kennesaw. Our psychologists offer a nonjudgmental, safe space to talk through your emotions and experiences. They will then provide you with their professional guidance and support.

How Do Psychologists Help?

As you can see from the list above, psychologists see many clients with a range of presenting issues. For this reason, the treatment that a psychologist provides varies on a regular basis, too! Here at Thriveworks Kennesaw, your psychologist will assess your unique needs and then develop a treatment plan that will best meet those needs. This plan will involve evidence-based treatments that have proven to help people make vast improvements in life.

All of that said, there are several common approaches to therapy including cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. Each of these therapy styles can help individuals, couples, as well as families. Again, your psychologist will determine the best approach based on your specific needs. Now, they might determine that you could benefit from medication in addition to therapy. If this is the case, they will work with a general physician or psychiatrist to meet this need, too.

Let's talk about Kelli Beechler for a second! This woman is an absolute God send to me! If you don’t believe in God, well then let's just say the universe or regardless of whatever it is you actually believe in, she has been an absolute gift in my life! This is a woman who NEVER makes you feel like you are just a number or a paycheck to her! I feel so thankful to know her! I can't fully express in words, how blessed I feel to have her in my life but I'm going to try just for the sake of someone else who might need to know her could be reading this. She is someone who’s beyond kind and compassionate and caring! She always meets me exactly where I am, and there has never been a single time that I don’t feel better after a session with her. My sessions change my week, my life, and also keep me sane when things go crazy! It brings me comfort in remembering no matter how hard things feel I get to see her and she will do whatever is in her power to help me help myself! She never fails to remind me who I am in my core, or what I’m trying to accomplish, or how to lead with a level head and not my emotions based on what I’ve told her I'm trying to accomplish. She helps me stay focused, determined, and accountable. Her soul is one of the best I’ve ever seen! I have been in and out of therapy the better half of my life and I'm about to be 28. I have had all kinds of people and teachings and nothing compares to the relationship I’ve developed with this woman in just a few short months. I don’t feel like she’s just a counselor, I feel like she’s my friend! Kelli shows up for me in a way no one else in my life does! I feel like I can tell her anything without fear. It's always a judgement free zone! I feel like she always comes from a place of love and of service in her heart! She’s always teaching me new ways and tricks and tips that help me. I am going through a great deal of things in my life right now and I’ve got to say I don’t really know what I would do without this woman and her support! The role she plays in my life is so significant. There is something so special about knowing you can count on someone, and not just count on someone but have great advice. There is something huge to say when a person is choosing to show up for you when you need them most, and I just want to express that I have literally never ever felt like I was just a way for her to make money. When I think about Kelli I can't help but want to express how beautiful her soul is. She is such a special person and anyone who knows her knows she’s a gift; the kind of pure magic! Don’t believe me? Set up a session with her and find out for yourself!
