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 Quincy, 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 Quincy 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.

Quincy, MA Psychiatry – Meet With a Board-Certified Psychiatric Provider

There are hundreds of mental illnesses in this world. Fortunately, there is treatment for these illnesses which often involves therapy and/or medication. If you develop a mental illness that can be alleviated and managed with medication, medication management will prove essential to your treatment journey.

If you are looking for psychiatric care, consider partnering with an online psychiatric nurse practitioner at Thriveworks Counseling in Quincy, MA. Our team is comprised of skilled, experienced, and compassionate professionals. They understand that this journey of learning how to best manage a mental health condition can be a difficult one. And they’ll do what they can to make it easier on you. To schedule an appointment at Thriveworks Counseling in Quincy, MA, give us a call.

What Mental Illnesses Can Benefit from Medication?

As we said earlier, some people find the help that they’re looking for in therapy, while others find relief in medication. And, of course, some find that a combination of the two is the key to managing their illness. On that note, there are many different mental health conditions that can be relieved or managed with medication, including:

  • Major and minor depression
  • Panic disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Postpartum depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Seasonal affective disorder

If you are experiencing symptoms of one of these mental illnesses or another one that we haven’t touched on, consider talking to a psychiatrist or another psychiatric provider. Often, we need professional help to properly manage or recover from a mental health condition before it gets worse.

Thriveworks Counseling has psychiatric nurse practitioners, therapists, counselors, and psychologists that you can work with. This means that we can help you through every step of this journey, from diagnosis to treatment, whether that involves therapy, medication, or both.

What Exactly Is Medication Management and How Can It Help?

Medication management is essential if you choose to take medication for a psychiatric illness (or any illness for that matter). Again, this is all about ensuring that you’re taking your medication properly and that it is to your benefit! The psychiatric nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Counseling in Quincy, MA make sure that…

  • They understand their client’s illness and symptoms
  • They plan or review one’s treatment, which should be based on their illness and symptoms
  • They recommend medication to their client as needed and ensure that they take it exactly as prescribed
  • They continually check in on their client and ask how the medication is working for them

Thriveworks Counseling is honored to provide medication management, therapy, and other mental health services to our clients. We have seen firsthand just how beneficial these services can prove to one’s life, and we want to do everything we can to improve access to said services.
