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 Orleans, LA 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 Orleans 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.

Kathryn schedules yearly physical exams for herself and her family, exercises daily, and keeps track of her energy levels. But she’s never dedicated too much time to her mental health. When her father passes away, she falls into a depressive slump. She avoids interactions with her kids, withdraws from family events, and falls behind at work.

Kathryn talks to her doctor, who suggests consulting a psychologist. Kathryn is wary at first because she was raised to keep her emotions in check, but after speaking with a psychologist, she begins to truly process her dad’s passing.

Psychologists are licensed mental health professionals with specialized training in diagnosing and treating mental illness. Each psychologist may have a specialty practice area where they have extra training in treating a specific condition, but all psychologists have extensive training in helping people manage all kinds of mental health concerns and challenges.

Taking care of your mind is equally as important as getting help for physical injuries and diseases. A licensed psychologist is trained to identify, diagnose, and treat the problems that might be keeping you from feeling your best.

What Does Psychological Treatment Typically Involve?

Many psychologists choose to work in a specialty area (like child development or trauma) to help people process stressful situations, manage chronic illnesses, overcome substance abuse, and much more. They attend years of schooling and supervised training to hone their craft and provide compassionate care to their clients.

Whether you are grieving the loss of a loved one, under excessive stress at work, living with unhealthy eating habits, or experiencing relationship issues, speaking with a trained psychologist can help.

Sessions are unique for every client, but there are some common things to expect:

  • Talk therapy: A skilled psychologist knows how to create a comfortable and confidential environment so you can speak about your concerns, needs, and personal goals. Many types of talk therapy can help you identify issues in your life and build a plan to reduce their impact.
  • Diagnostic tests: Psychologists are equipped to perform many diagnostic tests to determine the underlying cause of your discomfort, pain, or trauma. In addition, these tests can help identify a particular disorder or phobia that is impacting you.
  • Prescription medication: Psychologists can also advise you on the potential benefit of medication for treating any mental health issues. Some psychologists can prescribe medication in the state of Louisiana after completing a specific master’s degree program. However, most psychologists cannot prescribe medication. Instead, they’ll often work with a psychiatrist or other medical professional if medication would be helpful for your situation.

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.
