Noah was feeling great. He had just landed his dream job — it paid well and actually made him excited to get up in the mornings. Everything seemed new again and the possibilities were endless. The birds chirped louder and even the air smelled cleaner.
But soon, Noah found his list of to-dos piling up higher and higher. He started staying later and later at the office to make sure everything got done on time. No matter how much Noah worked, there seemed to be no end in sight.
Noah started to feel stuck and stagnant. Every day felt the same; every day ended as it started — in front of his computer. After long days at the office, Noah began to have trouble sleeping as he thought through all the projects that still needed to be completed. He began to self-medicate to ease his racing thoughts and get some sleep.
One today, Noah had a panic attack and he knew he had reached a breaking point. He was going to completely burn out if he didn’t make a change soon. He reached out to a licensed psychiatrist at Thriveworks to start a conversation and get his life back on track.
If you can relate to Noah’s story, you may be experiencing a mental health issue that is interfering with your daily life. Whether you’re facing anxiety, depression, or something else entirely, board-certified psychiatrists are trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent mental disorders of all kinds.

Would a Psychiatrist Be Able To Help Me?
Psychiatrists understand physical and mental health and how they affect each other. They diagnose and treat mental health conditions such as depression, attention disorders, behavioral health problems, eating disorders, and much more.
But your mental health concern doesn’t have to be severe to work with a Thriveworks psychiatrist. You just have to be willing to address your concerns and have the motivation to make a change.
Some of the most common reasons people seek out support from a psychiatrist include:
- Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
- Uncontrolled addictive behaviors
- Eating disorders or problems with body image
- Learning disabilities
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

What Does Psychiatric Treatment Involve?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in helping people with mental illnesses and other mental health concerns. They offer multiple forms of treatment, including psychotherapy and prescribed medications, which are effective in helping clients manage symptoms and reduce unnecessary suffering.
Your psychiatrist will first take the time to understand your concerns so they can tailor a treatment plan specific to your situation. You’ll discuss your medical history, your symptoms, as well as any other pertinent information about your current and past stressors.
Once your psychiatrist has reached a diagnosis, they’ll develop a treatment plan for you. Healing psychological problems can take time, just as it takes time to heal a broken arm or to recover from a long-term illness. The length of time largely depends on your specific issues, your goals, and how you react to treatment. But most clients start to feel better and more in control of their mental wellbeing after just a few sessions.
