Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are 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 do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Pasadena, TX 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.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Pasadena 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?

Kaylee used to see a therapist once a week, but since her work life has taken over, she no longer has time. While she wants to get back into the routine that she used to know, it doesn’t feel like her schedule can budge. It’s starting to wear on her, especially when her frustration and boredom catch up. Without having the outlet she used to via therapy, Kaylee feels lost. 

Kaylee has been doing her best to hold in these feelings, but she knows that isn’t going to last forever; eventually, she’ll need to open up to someone, somehow. Kaylee decided that she should attempt to make time for therapy once again. She knows that she really needs to talk to a mental health professional—and that’s why she’s reaching out to a psychologist to get the help she deserves. 

While Kaylee’s situation may not be identical to yours, your mental health may also be struggling and you may be unsure of where to turn. At Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX our psychologists are ready to help you. If you’re interested in discovering the benefits of our mental health services, call our office today to get started. 

What Does a Psychologist Do? Can They Help Me? 

Psychologists are highly trained and experienced mental health professionals, who often have advanced degrees related to mental health care and its studies. Their primary job is to act as a guide and mediator, talking people through the challenges of daily life. Psychologists often assist in helping to identify triggers and different coping strategies to alleviate issues. Some of the common mental health conditions and concerns that our psychologists can help with include: 

  • Difficulty processing a divorce or breakup 
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Relationship problems
  • Child or teen behavioral issues
  • Anxiety
  • Depression 
  • The loss of a friend or family member
  • Financial or work-related stress 
  • And many other conditions and life situations 

At Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX our psychologists can also help those with friendship, family, or relationship issues to improve their connections with family, couples, or friendship counseling and therapy. Regardless of where you all live, you can attend sessions together virtually, and talk to your shared psychologist about the issues that are affecting your connection. Attending sessions with the ones you love can help you all to improve your: 

  • Romantic relationships or marital problems 
  • Family relationships
  • Ability to set and hold healthy boundaries in different scenarios
  • Emotional regulation (in anger management or grief counseling) 
  • Communication skills and ability to compromise

Connect Virtually with Online Counseling

At Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX our psychologists are also available virtually through our online counseling services. It’s easier than ever to find time to meet with your psychologists when you can connect with them from home, on the go, or while traveling. Online counseling could also be an attractive option if you’re looking to: 

  • Avoid any anxiety you may feel while attending in-person sessions.
  • Engage with your therapist over the phone or through video as you both explore the sources and effects of your anxiety, sadness, relationship issues, and more. 
  • Meet with your therapist anywhere, as long as you have a solid internet connection and a private space to speak during your session.

Online counseling is also a great way for those with young children, odd work schedules, or health-related issues to still get access to their psychologist without having to compromise or commute to a physical location.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
