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 Woodstock, 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 Woodstock 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 is 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?

Without a doubt, when you have a challenge in your life, you want someone who knows and understands what you are going through. Having a genuine psychiatric medical professional who is committed to high-quality psychiatric care and superior patient care outcomes should be your number one priority.

When you are going through challenging times psychologically or emotionally, you want to find the finest healthcare provider who can help you become whole again. Certainly, if you are grappling with an emotional or psychological problem today, Thriveworks Woodstock is here for your or your family member to assist. Thriveworks psychiatrists and/or nurse practitioners can offer invaluable mental health support and they are:

  • Patient-centered
  • Caring and compassionate
  • Highly trained and experienced
  • Board-certified in Psychiatry

Thriveworks Georgia psychiatrists and/or nurse practitioners are the best in the industry. Indeed, our providers have been published in leading academic journals and news outlets. Truly, our providers are prepared and capable to put our expertise to work for you, our patient. At Thriveworks Woodstock, we firmly believe that anyone can find merit in using mental health services at our clinic.

Many erroneously assume that only the most severe cases of mental health disorders call for medication. Sadly, this is not the case. In reality, many people with various mental health conditions can profit from medication therapy. More specifically, patients suffering with ADD/ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and insomnia (just to name a few) may all benefit from medication therapy. If you have been diagnosed with a mental health illness, then it is essential for you to seek appropriate treatment. On the other hand, if you have been facing symptoms of a mental health condition and are not aware of what it is, then it is vital for you to see a mental health professional and receive a diagnosis. In either event, a psychiatrist and/or nurse practitioner at Thriveworks Woodstock can help you. Truly, they can offer diagnosis, treat your condition, and even help you better understand your symptoms.

Whether you are grappling with a mental health illness such as those abovementioned, you need a self-confidence improvement, you are sinking in grief, or you need some career counseling, a Thriveworks Woodstock mental health professional can help you. Certainly, all of us live unique lives and we all can prosper, nonetheless. To say the least, working with a Thriveworks Woodstock psychiatrist and/or nurse practitioner can help you attain that equilibrium you are chasing.

If you need to meet with someone about monitoring, prescribing, or changing your psychiatric medication, then trust Thriveworks Woodstock for all your mental healthcare needs. Please call a Thriveworks psychiatrist and/or nurse practitioner today at (770) 284-9092.

My 16 yr old daughter had been struggling with mood swings and depression/anxiety for a few years. We tried talk therapy first with a therapist but as she got older, the issues persisted. I contacted Thriveworks to seek out further help and everyone I engaged with was very helpful, very clear about the billing process and the psychiatry care schedule. We have had three sessions now with provider Melissa Gray and the care has been awesome. My daughter's mental health has been great and she is coping with things much better. It had been challenging to find the psychiatric care my daughter needed with other facilities either not taking new patients or being limited in the care provided. Thriveworks answered my call immediately and were able to get our first telemed appt within a few days. I strongly recommend Thriveworks!

I am so thankful to have found counsel with Ms. Porter. She has given me great coping strategies and is diligent in helping me walk through challenges and finding viable solutions. I started counseling in September and believe that I would not be able to navigate through the recent challenges had it not been for extensive counseling with Ms. Porter.

DeShawn provided world-class support for me during a time of transformation and confusion. He sat patiently with me and guided me to better understand my triggers, my strengths and my weaknesses so I can be a more formed person and more importantly, a kinder being to my self. Definitely recommend DeShawn for any therapeutic needs.

I was skeptical about doing therapy online but Ms. Parker made everything really welcoming and it has helped so much. I only write this so that anyone who is also skeptical knows how much Thriveworks has made this a positive experience and maybe they won't hesitate either

My 16 yr old daughter has been with Raven for a short time and already has had success in behavior and emotional healing. Raven is very brilliant, nurturing and caring, an excellent therapist. We are so thankful she is guiding our daughter in a healthy direction.
