What Do Psychologists Do?

A psychologist’s main goal is to help people effectively address challenges, especially mental health problems and other major life issues. Let’s talk a little bit about what these challenges and their corresponding treatment plans might look like:

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 1 in 5 adults in the US lives with a mental illness. These illnesses, otherwise known as mental health disorders, include depression, anxiety, OCD, anorexia, PTSD, and many others. A psychologist can provide you with psychological testing, as needed, to determine a diagnosis. They can also provide you with treatment for your disorder, of which might include psychotherapy, medication, or both.
  2. Other life issues: Psychologists can also help clients who are experiencing other major life issues, including relationship issues like jealousy, miscommunication, or abuse; stress management; feelings of worthlessness or lack of fulfillment; family conflicts; low self-esteem. The list goes on. Again, they can provide you with treatment for your specific problem, of which will likely involve psychotherapy. Your Thriveworks psychologist will create a personalized plan based on your needs.

If you’re struggling with a mental health problem or another life issue, consider talking to a psychologist about it. Not only can they offer a diagnosis for a potential mental illness, but they can help you break your problem down into manageable pieces and equip you with the necessary tools for working through it.
