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 Leominster, MA 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 Leominster 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.

Leominster, MA Psychiatry – Meet With Board-Certified Psychiatric Providers

Thriveworks Counseling was built on a mission of helping people live happy, successful lives. When you have a mental illness on your hands, it can feel difficult or even impossible to achieve happiness and/or success. But we promise you can do it. And we think that we can help you do it. In addition to counseling and therapy, Thriveworks in Leominster, MA can offer medication management led by an online psychiatric nurse practitioner.

Medication can help many different people manage a range of mental health conditions. If you’re taking medication for your condition or you would like to look into the possibility, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Leominster, MA. We can help.

Who Can Benefit from Psychiatry?

Everyone is different. When it comes to one’s mental health, it is essential that the individual receives personalized care with their needs in mind. This means treatment can look different from one person to the next, even if they’re struggling with the same illness. For example, one person might prefer to manage their depression with counseling, while another would prefer to take medication and also talk to a counselor every other week.

That said, there are certain mental illnesses that can often be managed effectively with medication. These illnesses include:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorder
  • Major/minor depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • Postpartum depression/anxiety

If you’re experiencing symptoms of any of these mental health conditions (or another illness that we haven’t touched on), please consider reaching out to a psychiatrist. They can help you identify what treatment plan will best help you! Again, Thriveworks Counseling can offer both counseling and medication management.

What Does Psychiatry Look Like?

The online psychiatric nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Counseling in Leominster would focus on a few main goals if you choose to meet with them:

  • They would want to understand your mental health condition, including your specific symptoms
  • They would want to plan and review your existing treatment plan (if you have one)
  • They would recommend medication, based on the needs that they observe
  • They would ensure that you know exactly how to take your medication and that you continue to follow these instructions
  • They would continue to check in with you to see that you’re happy with your medication and benefitting from its usage

Thriveworks Counseling is honored to help our clients grow, heal, and live better. If you think that you could find value in partnering with a psychiatrist, a nurse practitioner, or another provider, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

I was in great need of an in-person therapist. I've grown tired of being stuck in the zoom room for years now, like many people. Thankfully, I was able to schedule an appointment and get started at the local Thriveworks office. And I'm grateful for my therapist. I feel like I'm making great strides forward in a fraction of the time it took me to make similar progress with online therapy/counseling. Setting matters.
