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 Paramus, 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 Paramus 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?

Mental illness is a phrase that’s frightening to many people. However, an overwhelming number of us have struggled with some form of depression or anxiety at some point in our lives.

When you don’t express or process your emotions, they can become exaggerated and begin to affect every part of your life. After time, it will become difficult (if not impossible) for you to pinpoint exactly how you got to this point. Thankfully, there’s no need to cope with the stresses of life completely on your own. Mental health counselors have spent their lives helping people work through mental and emotional problems of all kinds.

People may put off visiting licensed psychologists at private practices for many reasons. They may see other people’s problems and feel like theirs isn’t as important. They may feel like it’s something they should be able to simply shrug off. Some people feel there is a social stigma when it comes to seeking professional help for psychological and behavioral problems, even though this is something that can benefit anyone at some point in their life.

Emotional issues such as depression don’t discriminate. It doesn’t matter how successful or famous you are. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is just one example of a well-known celebrity who has struggled with depression throughout his entire life. It’s important to realize that taking care of your mental health is important for everyone, and there’s no more shame in this than taking care of your physical health.

If you’re struggling and don’t know where to turn, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Paramus, New Jersey are here to help.

Can I Benefit From Working With a Psychologist?

Clinical psychologists can help individuals with a wide variety of problems, but some people are hesitant to seek out help despite the benefits of these health services. One reason for this is that many are under the impression that their problems don’t warrant professional attention.

Whether you’re struggling to deal with a dramatic life change such as divorce, the death of a loved one, or you’re unsatisfied with your relationships or career, having an outside perspective from an organizational psychologist can have a profound impact.

There are many reasons individuals seek out the help of a qualified mental health professional. Several examples include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues or divorce
  • Family issues
  • Substance abuse

If you feel like you would benefit from having a safe space to talk about your emotional or mental health with an experienced professional, be sure to make an appointment with Thriveworks licensed counselors in Paramus, New Jersey.

What Does Psychological Treatment Involve?

Psychologists conduct research into the mind and behavior of individuals, with specialized training to help patients deal with these mental health issues and life problems effectively.

If you want to truly thrive, connecting with others and forming healthy relationships is essential. However, many of us fall into negative patterns that can even lead back to childhood. Psychologists can help bring these negative patterns to light so they can be addressed effectively.

Psychologists typically use cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, when treating a wide variety of conditions. The idea behind cognitive behavioral therapy is that behavioral and thinking patterns can contribute to many mental health issues. Fortunately, someone with a doctorate degree in psychology can help clients address these patterns and learn how to create new ones that are more beneficial to their everyday lives.

Working with a licensed psychologist can offer a large number of benefits in your life. Some examples include improved self-worth, better communication skills, better personal and professional satisfaction, and higher energy levels, among others.

In the short term, sessions with our Paramus, NJ counselors can help you identify potential daily stressors and develop strategies to prevent you from derailing your emotional and mental wellbeing. In the long term, we can also help you deal with long term trauma or confront ongoing fears you may be dealing with.

If you feel like it’s time to reach out for help, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Paramus, New Jersey are standing by.

So far it's OK. I say ok because there is a big age difference between the therapist and myself. Maybe by 25yrs or so.
