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 Norman, OK 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 Norman 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?

The author Patricia Love once stated, “Psychotherapy isn’t a twentieth-century artifice imposed on nature, but the reinstatement of a natural healing process.” People who have never been to therapy before might feel intimidated by the process, but human beings have been going to healers and priests and shamans and sages for as long as humans have had a culture. It’s not normal to do all the work of being complex, sensitive people by ourselves. We need our support systems like friends and family. But we also need wise, compassionate people whose job it is to listen closely and guide us toward psychological insights. 

The licensed psychologists at Thriveworks in Norman, OK have the knowledge and expertise to help people achieve their goals in life, whether they’re looking for relief from depression, anxiety, or an eating disorder; or they want to talk about the meaning of life with someone who won’t judge their thoughts and feelings.

How Do I Choose the Right Mental Health Provider?

Choosing the right mental health provider may seem stressful when you’ve never been to therapy before, but Thriveworks therapy clients are free to shop around until they find the person with whom they feel the most comfortable–and with whom they feel they can do the most productive, effective therapy work. All the providers at Thriveworks in Norman, OK are colleagues, thus they can refer clients to each other to find the ideal match of provider and client. For example, a person suffering from depression may start out with an insightful psychologist at Thriveworks who devises a treatment plan that includes drug and alcohol counseling. Or the psychologist may suspect that the person could benefit from antidepressants, in which case they’ll refer the client to a Thriveworks psychiatrist. Then the client can meet with the psychiatrist online for a full evaluation, potentially receive a prescription to antidepressants (or something else), and book follow-up psychiatric appointments to manage the medication.
