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 Newton, MA 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 Newton 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?

Consider this hypothetical: You were always a die-hard believer in true love. You watched the love your parents put on display for each other and hoped that one day you would find your one true love, too. But then, suddenly, they decided to separate. The announcement of their divorce left you crumbled. It was an end-of-childhood moment that challenged everything you knew to be true about life and love. Now, you harbor a fear of commitment. Anytime someone shows interest, you shy away and shut their pursuit down. You wish that you could let someone in but there’s just too much at stake, you tell yourself.

Nothing in life is quite as important as you think it is while you’re thinking about it.”  –Daniel Kahneman

This fear of commitment as demonstrated in the example above is a common problem in today’s world. And often, it is a direct effect of a family member’s divorce. The thing is that this isn’t an impossible problem to overcome—it might be tough, but with the help of a psychologist, you can overcome your fear of commitment and go on to develop a loving, meaningful relationship of your own. This is a psychologist’s job: To assess your unique needs as well as your goals and then to develop a treatment plan that suits those needs and goals. Now, these needs and goals vary from person to person.

Whatever your needs and goals might be, the psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling in Newton, MA are here to provide you with a unique treatment plan tailored to fit you. You might have a fear of commitment or you might have another problem entirely—say, symptoms of a mental illness, a low self-esteem, lonely feelings, the death of a loved one, and so on. Whatever it is, our professionals are here and prepared to offer their guidance. To schedule your appointment, call our office at (617) 992-2827. We look forward to it.

Should I See a Psychologist?

Some people feel nervous or intimidated to see a mental health professional. We understand that, but we also see firsthand just how beneficial mental health services can be. You might benefit from working with a psychologist if you’re experiencing one of the following:

  1. A stubborn relationship issue: Coming to an agreement or resolving a problem with a significant other can be really hard. You both bring unique thoughts, feelings, and ideas to the table—of which can conflict with one another. Fortunately, a psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Newton, MA can mediate and serve as that unbiased third party to help you get back to a healthy place in your relationship.
  2. Symptoms of a mental illness: Many of us will develop a mental illness at some point in our lifetime, be it depression, anxiety, or another condition. In any case, a psychologist can help you to understand your illness, manage your symptoms, and learn to live happily again.
  3. The death of a loved one: If a friend or family member has recently passed, you’re likely going through a really tough time. The grief process is different for every individual, but it often comes with sadness and sometimes anger, confusion, regret, as well as other difficult emotions. A psychologist can support you during this grief process.

As you can see, the psychologists on our Thriveworks team are able to help you with varying mental health challenges and life issues. If you’re struggling mentally or emotionally in any capacity, please consider reaching out to one of our psychologists or another mental health professional.

My husband and I worked with Emily for a few months and her guidance had really made a difference in our marriage. In fact, my husband was skeptical about couples counseling initially, but really came to value it after a few sessions; the only reason we stopped was because our insurance changed. Both of us found Emily to be a compassionate and fair listener who recommended concrete tools and practices for us that turned out to be quite helpful.
