Psychiatry in Colorado Springs, CO--Online Psychiatrists Who Accept Medical Insurance

Psychiatry in Colorado Springs, CO–Online Psychiatrists Who Accept Medical Insurance

Jim had anxiety and a gastrointestinal disorder that he suspected was related to his anxiety. Together, these conditions made it difficult for him to leave the house. But he knew that he needed superior mental health treatment for his anxiety. He was sick and tired of having his life disrupted by persistent worries. These constant fears were interfering with his professional life and his personal life. But traveling to an appointment seemed daunting. Could Jim book an online appointment with a psychiatrist so he could do the session from his own couch, in the comfort of his own home? Would he have to sacrifice any medical quality if he met with a doctor virtually? 

Jim should contact a licensed psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO. These psychiatrists can meet with clients online and perform almost all of the same services that a specialized psychiatric doctor can perform in-person. For example, online psychiatrists (telepsychiatrists) at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO can diagnose mental disorders and prescribe medications like antidepressants. And these appointments are usually covered by medical insurance. Online psychiatric appointments are an effective, affordable, and convenient option for individuals like Jim who may have trouble making it to in-person sessions. 

How Do Psychiatrists Diagnose Mental Health Conditions? 

Psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO use a variety of assessment tools to diagnose mental health conditions like depression and bipolar disorder. When you have your initial appointment with your psychiatrist, you may expect it to include some of the following steps toward diagnosis:

  • A comprehensive discussion of your symptoms
  • A self-assessment  
  • Psychological and physical exams
  • An explanation of your medical history
  • A discussion of your family’s relevant medical history
  • Consultation with your other doctors and caregivers
  • Mood charting
  • A psychosocial evaluation
  • Psychoeducation
  • Education about medications and other treatment options
  • Deciding together on a treatment plan together

How Do Psychiatrists Treat Mental Health Conditions?

Psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO are experienced in a broad range of evidence-based therapies that can help support individuals who are suffering from mental conditions and disorders. One key difference between a clinical psychologist, who treats individuals with psychotherapy, and a psychiatrist, is that psychiatrists are able to prescribe medications to their clients. This is because psychiatrists are MDs who graduated from medical school with extensive training in underlying physiological as well as psychological causes for mental health conditions. In addition to prescribing medications, psychiatrists can also use any of the following treatment tools:

  • Online psychotherapy
  • Substance abuse treatment as needed
  • In-patient treatment (hospitalization)
  • Lifestyle changes (improvements in dietary and exercise patterns to improve physical/mental health)
  • Medication management

Does Psychiatry Count As Primary Care?

In medical school, psychiatry is a specialty that is not considered primary care. Primary care specialties include family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN). Because many individuals may first bring their mental health symptoms to their primary care doctor, that physician may sometimes serve as a liaison between individuals and psychiatrists. Primary care physicians typically do not have the specialized knowledge and training needed to diagnose and treat mental health and behavioral conditions, but they may refer you to a psychiatrist for a more comprehensive assessment. 

If you know that you are suffering from a mental condition or you’re concerned about your behavior, you can reach out directly to an online psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Colorado Springs, CO. These virtual medical (telehealth) appointments are usually covered by medical insurance. They are secure, HIPAA-compliant, and use the latest in Thriveworks telehealth technology. Plus you can rest assured that all our psychiatrists are licensed and rated at the top of their specialty field.

Jerry was Amazing!

★★★★★
Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.

Thrive has helped my husband so much. He has vestibular issues and it creates bad balance problems. It also has created left side weakness and he has had to use a cane to assist him with walking and stairs. Since being treated at Thrive, he only uses his,cane with stairs now and on occasion when he isn't feeling that well. His balance has improved abiut 65% also. His moods are much better now also since he can get around better by himself! Thank you Thrive for all you have done for my husband and our family!

I also have appreciated the communication that Lindsay has had with me regarding my daughter. Thank you Lindsay and ThriveWorks.

The best therapists across the Front Range!

★★★★★
I was recommended to Thriveworks by District 11 for my son who is diagnosed with Autism, PTSD, ADHD and RAD. He had a quite abusive life, prior to my adopting him. Directly from the onset of my scheduling his intake to his intake appointment, my spirit felt that this was going to be the correct place for him to be. Rachel, his therapist, is amazing! The entire staff is amazing. Their communication skills are dynamic and Talon is responding so positively; actually more so than he has with any other therapy group. The focus is on his success! Success in overcoming his obstacles and in life. As a therapist, myself, I highly recommend Thriveworks! Empathy, Compassion, Dynamic abilities in using therapeutic tools and in teaching clients how to use and apply them in life.

So thankful

★★★★★
So very thankful I chose Thriveworks and Kara Kays. Our time together was very helpful, and I made great progress. BDT was not like anything I’ve done before. Old way was to talk about the past and what made me who I am, new way is what is happening today, how can I be effective in my relationships today. Loved the learning tools, and I really clicked with Kara. Great experience

Making an appointment

★☆☆☆☆
I’ve never had a more difficult time just setting up an appointment. The lady who took my call seemed to be very inconvenienced with what I needed. There was hostility in her voice when I asked questions that she obviously deemed as common knowledge. When she finally found a counselor for my needs, and we moved to make an appointment, even though I said I would take time off work, she still seemed very rude with wanting to make an appointment. I read the profiles of many of the counselors, and they seem like wonderful people. But because of my initial contact with attempting to make an appointment, I will not be seeing anyone here.
