Starting Psychiatry/medication

Does Thriveworks offer psychiatric services?

Yes, we offer comprehensive psychiatric services to meet your mental health needs.

How does psychiatry work?

Psychiatry allows people struggling to manage mental conditions or disorders to get access to medications that will make daily functioning easier, as well as work through any mental factors that might be causing or worsening their condition. Though medications can’t cure mental disorders, medication can make symptoms more manageable, making the process of psychotherapeutic treatment easier and more effective. Psychiatric care can be available through in-person psychiatry and online psychiatry, depending on where you live and your own preferences. However, psychiatric providers at Thriveworks in Boca Raton, FL specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist & psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, though they often refer clients to psychiatrists for medication management. Psychiatrists are medically trained doctors who specialize in mental health treatment, mainly through medication management and prescription, though they can also practice therapy.

What is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (NP)?

A Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a highly trained and licensed professional who specializes in mental health care. They are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, prescribe medications, and provide therapy. Psychiatric NPs at Thriveworks are qualified to prescribe medications for a variety of mental health conditions. They work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

How do psychiatric providers diagnose?

Oftentimes, psychiatrists or psychiatric professionals will perform a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which involves an in-depth discussion about your symptoms, medical history, and current medications. Once they reach a diagnosis, they may suggest starting certain medications depending on your condition and the intensity of your symptoms.

Can I receive psychiatric services online?

Yes. At Thriveworks, we offer online-only psychiatry services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Boca Raton can last for as little or as much time as the client needs to reach their treatment goals, whether that be a month or two or over the course of a year. Treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client’s goals for treatment.

Is anxiety treated with psychiatry?

Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication and provide therapeutic treatment for anxiety, although not all psychiatrists offer therapy. At Thriveworks, medication management occurs via online psychiatry sessions.

Does Thriveworks accept insurance for psychiatric services?

Yes, Thriveworks accepts most major insurance plans. We strive to make mental health care accessible and affordable for everyone.

Who Can Benefit from Talking to a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers can help many people with various mental health challenges. Here are a few common mental health conditions that should be discussed with a psychiatric provider or another mental health professional:

  1. Anxiety disorders: Alice experienced anxiety in many different areas of her life. This means that she likely suffered from generalized anxiety disorder, but there are many other types of anxiety out there. For example, social anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and specific phobias. Psychiatric providers know all about these disorders and can offer diagnoses as well as treatment.
  2. Depressive disorders: As with anxiety disorders, there are different types of depression. There is major depression as well as minor depression. There is also postpartum depression and seasonal affective disorder. Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers are also well-versed on these conditions and they can help you secure the help that you need.
  3. Substance abuse and addiction: Substance abuse and addiction are serious mental health problems that should also be addressed with a mental health professional. If you are experiencing symptoms or think you might have a problem, they can help you get back to a healthier you.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
