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 New Haven, CT 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 New Haven 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?

Life doesn’t always go the way we want or expect. Let’s be honest, it often doesn’t go the way we want or expect. Our thoughts, our needs, our desires are constantly changing. Now, sometimes these changes are for the best; they benefit our lives in more ways than one. But, it isn’t always easy to identify these benefits when these changes first take place. It can feel uncomfortable, scary, and anxiety-inducing instead.

When we encounter major changes or transitions in life, experience negative emotions, or face other challenges, we can find value in working with a mental health professional. Mental health professionals, such as the psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling, are dedicated to helping people best navigate these challenges and find greater happiness or success in life.

Give yourself the same care and attention that you give to others, and watch yourself bloom.

Thriveworks has aligned itself with this very mission of helping people live happy, successful lives. We understand just how challenging life can be, and we want to help you through these challenging moments. With a little help from a psychologist, you can better navigate the curveballs thrown your way, continue life with new vigor, and set yourself up for more success than you ever thought possible. Thriveworks Counseling has psychologists on our New Haven, CT team and they can see you now. Call our office to schedule your first session, at (203) 586-4264.

Should I Pursue Help from a Psychologist?

A lot of people forego working with a mental health professional for years because they assert that their problems “aren’t severe enough” or “don’t require outside assistance.” Now, a common misconception about mental health help is that it’s only for those who are struggling with serious or severe problems. In reality, psychologists can help people with a range of problems, of which can fall anywhere from mild, to medium, to high on the severity scale.

We insist that anybody and everybody can find value in starting a relationship with a psychologist or another mental health professional. As we mentioned above, our providers devote themselves to helping others get more out of life. And they find success in doing so, thanks to their level of skills, experience, and training. Now, although counseling is catered to the individual, there are common challenges that are discussed with our psychologists. These challenges include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Stress and anger management
  • Marital concerns
  • Relationship issues
  • The loss of a loved one
  • Struggles in parenting
  • Lack of success or fulfillment

Do any of the above challenges wreak havoc on your life? Or, are you struggling with a completely separate issue? Either way, the psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling are here to make a difference and help you work your way through your given challenges.

How Can Psychologists Help Me?

At Thriveworks Counseling in New Haven, we know just how important it is to offer personalized mental health care. When you meet with your psychologist for the first time, their #1 goal will be to understand your needs and goals.

  1. Depression therapy
  2. Couples therapy or marriage counseling

  5. Trauma therapy
  6. Grief counseling
