What Disorders Do Psychiatrists Treat?

Psychiatrists are highly trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of mental health issues, from mild anxiety to severe bipolar disorder. Whether your issues are chronic or short-term, a board-certified psychiatrist can help you understand the symptoms you are experiencing and help you manage them.

People choose to consult with a psychiatrist for many different reasons. Psychiatrists can be a lifeline for those managing chronic psychological problems, helping them stay on track and preventing relapse of symptoms. A psychiatrist can also help you maintain good mental health and stability during times of great difficulty.

Some common reasons you may consider seeing a psychiatrist include:

  • Depression or anxiety disorders
  • PTSD and other stress disorders
  • Anger management issues
  • Addiction or substance abuse
  • Personality or mood disorders
  • Trouble dealing with major life changes
  • Eating disorders
  • Learning disabilities

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what has caused a change in your thoughts or behaviors. A psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Toms River, NJ can help determine the source of your mental health issues and help you overcome them.

What Can I Expect With Psychiatric Treatment?

A psychiatrist is equipped to diagnose and treat a wide variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues. As medical doctors, psychiatrists can assess both the physical and psychological manifestations of these issues in order to arrive at a diagnosis, create a treatment plan, and prevent the return or relapse of symptoms.

Diagnosing the root cause of your symptoms is the first step in treating them. Psychiatrists approach mental health issues comprehensively, assessing the many possible contributing factors in order to rule out any other possible medical conditions. They may review your medical history, your mental faculties, your personality, and your environment. They may also perform a physical examination or request lab work.

After they have diagnosed your mental health concerns, your psychiatrist will design a treatment plan unique to you, focusing on your symptoms and goals for treatment. A psychiatric treatment plan generally includes a form of therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, or humanistic therapy. Your psychiatrist may also prescribe medications if needed, and guide you through coping mechanisms to help manage your issues long term.

If you’re experiencing overwhelming symptoms and want to make a change, consider working with a licensed professional. The psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Toms River, NJ can help you understand your mental health issues and give you the tools you need to stay one step ahead of them.

Truly the best of the best!

Thriveworks is great and really cares for clients, I fully recommend them! And I honestly cannot say enough good things about Sharon Ryan. I never feel wrong, crazy, or judged while speaking with her. She is so comforting and provides excellent, accurate insights. I really appreciate her interest and understanding as well as her flexibility for appointments. I’ve been struggling with losing interest in hobbies that I once loved. With Sharon’s help, I’ve developed new interests I’ve always wanted to try and expanded my horizons. Thank you so much, truly, from the bottom of my heart!
