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 Long Beach, CA 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 Long Beach 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.

Jake’s feelings might have felt manageable at first — a low-grade sense of anxiety and a persistent feeling of sadness that he could ignore for periods of time. But over the last few weeks, those feelings grew like a tidal wave, becoming overwhelming and threatening to crash down on him at any moment. He started to feel out of control and his symptoms began to interfere with his career and his relationships.

If you feel at all like Jake, you don’t have to be ashamed or embarrassed. Mental health issues are extremely common and countless people every year meet with licensed psychologists to get to the root of their problems and pursue happier, healthier lives.

Even Captain American himself, Chris Evans, has talked about experiencing depression and severe anxiety. He gets overwhelmed by the spotlight at events, even when walking the red carpet for movie premieres. Evans has been vocal about his experiences, seeking help from mental health professionals to get his life back on track — and encourages others to do the same.

If you’re ready to seek help for your mental health issues and improve your life, consider reaching out to one of our counseling psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling in Long Beach, CA today. When you feel ready to take this first step, we are here to help you on the road to healing.

When Should One Consider Seeing a Psychologist?

You may not think your problems merit seeing a mental health professional but psychologists can actually help with a wide variety of issues. Whether you are dealing with the loss of a relationship or the death of a loved one, or are simply experiencing general feelings of disinterest in your usual activities, having support from a licensed professional can help.

Psychologists can help their clients:

  • Overcome relationship problems
  • Cope effectively with major life transitions
  • Overcome past traumas
  • Deal with feelings of emptiness
  • Resolve long-lasting family disputes
  • Recover from anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses
  • Increase confidence and self-esteem
  • Overcome phobias
  • Work through career uncertainties

If you think you could benefit from working with a licensed psychologist, Thriveworks in Long Beach, CA provides a safe, secure environment to get compassionate support and guidance.

How Can a Psychologist Help Me Heal?

Psychologists study behavior and mental processes and work with clients to help alleviate their symptoms and overcome life’s challenges. They are mental health professionals who diagnose and treat mental health conditions, often through the use of talk therapy. In this mode of treatment, clients get the opportunity to process their emotions, work through their concerns, and identify solutions to help them feel better.

Talking with a professional counselor can help you:

  • Better understand your thoughts
  • Change unwanted or unhelpful behaviors
  • Reduce your symptoms
  • Find greater happiness in relationships
  • Learn to communicate more effectively
  • Gain different perspectives on life stressors

Licensed psychologists help people from all walks of life overcome their mental, emotional, and behavioral issues. While this process can take time, clients often learn valuable lessons and coping strategies within the first few sessions that will last a lifetime.

If you are ready to take back control of your mental health, the counselors at Thriveworks in Long Beach, CA are standing by to help.
