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 Lawrenceville, GA 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 Lawrenceville 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.

Need more help deciding?

Life’s everyday demands make it hard to prioritize your mental health. Things like jobs, school, errands, and everyday routine prevent us from reaching out for help, or even realizing how much we need it. 

Although it can be easy to do, putting your mental and emotional health on the back burner only results in months, potentially years, of emotional turmoil. Choosing to get help is a smart decision. At Thriveworks Counseling in Lawrenceville, GA, we want to make getting help easy and accessible. That’s why if you are ready to take the next step, we can often see you within the same week.

If you think you might benefit from talking to a psychiatric professional, book a session online or call our office for scheduling assistance. We’d love to work with you on your journey to healing.

What Is Psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a medical specialty that aims to diagnose, treat, and manage various mental health disorders. It often involves prescribing psychiatric medications to help treat symptoms. These can include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and more. The field of psychiatry includes a variety of different roles and professions, all with the goal of helping people cope with any mental and emotional challenges they’re facing. 

One of these professionals is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. These experts are board-certified and can diagnose, treat, and help manage psychiatric disorders. A psychiatric nurse practitioner will prescribe, monitor, and adjust medications as necessary, which can be very helpful when getting used to a new treatment plan. 

When someone is struggling with their mental health, they often seek help through therapy and counseling. Some people may also benefit from exploring other treatment options, like medication or psychological evaluation. These two are not mutually exclusive— in fact, many people flourish with a combination of the two. Mental health professionals can help you create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your needs. 

At Thriveworks, there are many experienced, knowledgeable experts who can help guide you on your mental health journey. Our team offers treatment completely online, so you can get the help you need from wherever you are, seven days a week. Whether you need emergency psychiatry or have been considering medication for some time, telepsychiatry allows you to access the expertise of our clinicians quickly and conveniently. 

When Should You Talk to a Psychiatrist?

There is no “right time” to decide to work with a psychiatrist. Many people wait until they’re in need of emergency help to reach out. However, as soon as you begin to experience a challenge, setback, or difficulty that interferes with your everyday life, it might be best to seek professional help. 

There are many signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for if you think you or a loved one should talk to a mental health professional. Some of these include:

  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Thoughts of hurting other people or yourself
  • Anxiety, worry, and fear
  • Difficulty concentrating, paying attention, or remembering things
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Experiencing hallucinations or delusions
  • Obsessively thinking
  • Difficulty adjusting after major life changes, stress, or loss

Dr. Tressa Stiles is an amazing therapist who immediately put me at ease with the way she was able to hear what I was saying. I felt understood and that there was no judgement. While she took time to hear me, she also offered a few suggestions to try out and that I found helpful. The most important thing to me is knowing I have a safe space where I can share what’s troubling me.
