For many problems we encounter, we can work through them with the help and support of our loved ones. For other problems though, we need help and support from someone with special skills and experience. In these instances, a psychologist can provide us with the professional assistance we’re looking for.
“It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” –Ellen J. Langer
Consider: Lately, you’ve been feeling down in the dumps. You don’t have any motivation to go to work. You’d much prefer to stay in bed—even when your friends and family want to see you. You haven’t gone to the gym in several weeks and you can’t remember the last time you painted, one of your favorite activities. You realize that you’re exhibiting symptoms of depression. While talking to loved ones about how you’re feeling can be helpful, a psychologist can offer a diagnosis and treatment for your depression.
This is just one example of how working with a professional psychologist can be necessary as well as valuable. If you are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness, such as depression (like in the example above), a psychologist can help you manage your symptoms and feel happier again. Psychologists can help you manage other major life issues too. If you are struggling, consider working with a psychologist at Thriveworks Marietta, GA. Our team is happy to meet you in an in-person or online session. It’s up to you! To schedule your appointment, call our office at (404) 439-9981.
Do I Need to Meet with a Psychologist?

- Marital discord

This list is not comprehensive. In truth, a psychologist can help and prove beneficial when it comes to any challenge that is negatively affecting your mental health and wellbeing.

How Does Psychological Treatment Work?
When you first begin working with your Cobb County Psychologist, they will first get to know you and your history. They’ll ask you to identify your problems, and depending on what those are, they might administer psychological testing. For example, if you are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness, they’ll want to look closely at those symptoms and offer a potential diagnosis. Then once they best understand your needs, they will design treatment specifically for you!
Your treatment plan might involve psychotherapy, or talk therapy, which is conversing with your therapist and learning more effective ways for managing your problems. Your treatment plan might also involve bringing in loved ones to join you for a session or two, especially if your problems involve family members or friends. Your psychologist might also determine that medication could be beneficial to you. In this case, they can work with your primary care physician or a psychiatrist to provide you with medication management.
