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 Newark, NJ 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 Newark 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.

While other worldviews lead us to sit in the mist of life’s joys,

foreseeing the coming sorrows, Christianity empowers its people

to sit in the midst of this world’s sorrows, tasting the coming joy.”

–Timothy Keller

Our lives can be divided into multiple important areas from our careers to our interpersonal relationships, our spirituality, and more. Every single area works together to bring us happiness, success, and fulfillment. However, if even just one area is off kilter, we can suffer significantly. Fortunately, psychologists can help us to make reparations as needed. They can also help us prepare for future challenges that might threaten our wellbeing. If a psychologist sounds like someone you’re interested in working with, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Newark. Just call our office. We can set you up with a psychologist in the Newark area, and often within 24-48 hours of your call.

How Can a Psychologist Make a Difference in My Life?

Psychologists help people work through their given challenges, using a combination of therapeutic techniques. Your psychologist can make a meaningful difference in your life, by helping you to…

  • Open up about and resolve conflicts with your spouse or partner
  • Build stronger relationships with your family members
  • Better manage both personal and professional stressors
  • Manage and talk about difficult emotions like anger or grief
  • Understand and manage symptoms of a mental illness, like depression
  • Work through addiction and maintain sobriety
  • Achieve more, leading to greater happiness and/or success

The psychologists here at Thriveworks can incorporate many different approaches to counseling into treatment. These will all depend on what your specific needs or goals are for your time in counseling. For example, your counselor might utilize marriage counseling, stress management, trauma therapy, or family therapy techniques to help you get to where you need to be.

Thriveworks Newark psychologists are also happy to consider and work in any preferences you might have for counseling. For example, if you are a spiritual or religious individual and you’d like them to incorporate this into your treatment however they can, they’ll do their best to fulfill this request. They’ve seen just how powerful one’s spirituality can be. In fact, research shows that turning to one’s faith during mentally or emotionally challenging times provides the individual with strength and helps them maintain their wellbeing.

What Does Working with a Psychologist Look Like?

Your time with your psychologist will look a little different from one person to the next. As we mentioned earlier, your Thriveworks psychologist will create a personalized treatment plan, designed to meet your needs. However, you can expect them to utilize principles of psychology and specific modalities that will help you resolve your personal challenges.

It’s important to mention that our psychologists will not condemn you for any wrongdoings. We are all humans, which means we are bound to make mistakes. Do not feel ashamed for any of the challenges you might be experiencing or feel afraid to talk to your psychologist about your struggles. They are here to provide you with a safe, nonjudgmental space to iron out the problems in your life.
