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 McKinney, TX 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 McKinney 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?

Preston recently cut ties with a friend group that has been an unhealthy influence in his life for a long time. Even though he has other connections and his family to lean upon, he doesn’t have the same level of connection with anyone else as he did with his old group. Even though he’s not interested in re-starting his old friendships, Preston isn’t sure how to talk through the loss and sadness he feels about not having his familiar set of friends around. 

After some thinking, Preston has decided that he should talk to a psychologist, someone who can help him sort through the negative emotions that are stemming from his recent life changes. Preston feels like talking to a psychologist could be a waypoint for him, the first step as he learns to prioritize his mental health and personal goals. While he’s happy to be on a better path, Preston also knows that he’ll need to keep an open mind during counseling or therapy in order to make the most out of every session. 

Maybe you, like Preston, are looking to talk with a psychologist about the issues that are troubling you. At Thriveworks in McKinney, TX we know that anyone, at any point in their lives can benefit from talking with someone on our team of psychologists. Doing so can help you balance your emotional wellbeing, as you gain access to a psychologist’s professional insight and guidance. Contact our office for more information and to schedule a session today. 

Should I Talk to a Thriveworks Psychologist? 

Anyone can benefit from talking with our psychologists; the purpose of counseling or therapy is about constantly improving upon the progress we attain, not about becoming perfect. With that in mind though, everyone’s mental health needs are different—so being candid and honest with your psychologist about what’s wrong is important. By choosing to open up, you can provide your Thriveworks psychologist with the feedback they need to help you start feeling better. Some of the common mental health challenges and conditions that our psychologists can help to treat include: 

  • Anger issues
  • Marital problems
  • Anxiety and stress 
  • Family disagreements
  • Divorce and breakups
  • Major and minor depression
  • Self-esteem issues

How Can a Psychologist Help Me? 

Psychologists are able to assist with many different situations and mental health conditions through therapy or counseling sessions. These sessions typically use talk or behavioral therapy to help clients better understand and manage the symptoms of their mental health condition or conditions. Psychologists are even able to help people who are experiencing interpersonal relationship issues with their friends, family, or loved ones through group counseling. By talking with someone from our psychology team in McKinney, TX, you can work to improve your: 

  • Ability to set and hold healthy boundaries in different scenarios
  • Communication skills 
  • Family relationships
  • Relationship or marital problems
  • Emotional regulation (in anger management or grief counseling)

Plus, our online sessions are also easy to book— feel free to call our office or book online. You can also rest easy knowing that your virtual session will be secure.

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.
