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 Royal Oak, MI 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 Royal Oak 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?

We all struggle from time to time with a mental health challenge. Some of these challenges are more pressing, like symptoms of a mental illness. Others appear to be mild, such as an argument with one’s spouse. But it’s equally important that both serious and more minor problems are confronted properly. Doing so isn’t always a piece of cake—this is where a mental health professional comes in. Mental health professionals dedicate themselves to helping people address and manage these problems, whether it’s a mental illness like depression or anxiety, conflict in one’s most important relationships, or another problem entirely!

People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help. –Glennon Melton

How Can Thriveworks Oakland Psychologists Help Me?

This is a loaded question, as we don’t know your specific needs or goals. However, if you do choose to work with one of our psychologists, the first thing they will do is get to know your needs and goals. This will allow them to create the most effective treatment plan for you! Now, these professionals have a wide array of skills and levels of training, of which enable them to meet their clients’ unique needs. It’s their job to provide this mental health and support. Here is a list of common issues that are brought up in counseling and therapy:

  • Anxious thoughts and feelings
  • Depressive thoughts and feelings
  • Painful emotions, like grief and disappointment
  • Relationship or marital issues, like infidelity
  • Parenting disagreements or family problems
  • Stress, in one’s personal or professional life

The psychologists at Thriveworks Oakland Counseling are eager to help more people address their mental health challenges. Unfortunately, there is still a stigma that exists when it comes to seeking mental health help, which prevents people from seeking help when they need it. In reality, receiving help with your mental health problems is a huge sign of strength! We want you to know that there won’t be any judgment here. Instead, you can look forward to a safe and supportive space to talk through what’s bothering you.

When I met with Jillian Kraydich I was in awe with her professionalism and exceptional bedside manor. Our meeting started on time and I felt comfortable right from the start. She was patient, understanding and overall a great help for me. She took the time to get to know me over the course of a few meetings and always allowed me to talk about whatever was on my mind without interruptions or judgement. I have spoken with a few other therapists in the past but they did not allow me to speak as freely as Jillian did. I would highly recommend her for the numerous reasons I stated above.
