Mt. Pleasant Psychiatrists — Schedule an Appointment in SC

Ava used to have a strong work-life balance. She would sign off at the end of the day, go for a run outside, and then spend the rest of the evening with her family to recharge for the next day. But lately, things have changed and Ava has taken on more work responsibilities while her company tries to cut costs and restructure things internally.

Ava was happy to take on the extra work at first but days soon turned into weeks and the lines have blurred between work and home life. She’s answering emails later in the evening and hasn’t been running nearly as much as she used to. She’s having trouble sleeping and is sometimes experiencing shortness of breath and migraine headaches.

With friends and family worried about her, Ava decides to seek out help. She meets with a licensed psychiatrist to get to the bottom of her symptoms and get a customized treatment plan.  By opening up to a mental health professional, she gains a valuable third-party perspective on how her own thought patterns are worsening her symptoms. Though she’s only been to a few sessions so far, Ava has already learned some valuable coping skills that are helping her keep her symptoms at bay.

If you’re experiencing mental health issues too, professional mental health support can make a difference. Board-certified psychiatrists are standing by to offer guidance at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant, SC. When you’re ready, reach out to schedule a psychiatry appointment with a compassionate and experienced Thriveworks professional.

When To See a Thriveworks Psychiatrist

Psychiatrists are medical doctors equipped to diagnose and treat situations ranging from mild and chronic to severe and sudden. You don’t need to be suffering from suicidal thoughts or panic attacks to benefit from psychiatric services (although psychiatrists do absolutely help people with these symptoms as well.)

Here are some of the symptoms and situations that might prompt you to consult with a psychiatrist:

  • Substance abuse
  • Self-destructive behaviors
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Unexplained mood swings
  • Trouble managing anger or stress
  • Personality changes
  • Eating disorders and body image issues
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • Feelings of low self-worth
  • Trouble dealing with death or loss

If you are experiencing any of the above issues, you’re not alone. Millions seek out help from licensed professionals every year to address their mental health concerns and gain control over their lives once again. Even if you don’t know why you are feeling the way you do, a psychiatrist can help you unlock those answers.

When you’re ready to schedule a psychiatry appointment, licensed psychiatrists are standing by to help at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

What To Expect From Psychiatry Appointments

When you turn to a psychiatrist, you will be working with a medical doctor who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of psychological disorders. Unlike other mental health professionals, psychiatrists are medical doctors who are able to analyze both physical and mental symptoms when diagnosing mental health issues. They can perform physical exams, request lab work, and review medical records to get a complete picture of your situation.

Licensed psychiatrists are also unique in that they are able to administer the full range of treatment options including prescription medications. Once a diagnosis is reached, your psychiatrist will determine whether medication, talk therapy, or other forms of treatment will best address your symptoms. Some clients benefit from a mix of medication and psychotherapy.

Some of the most common types of therapy used by psychiatrists and psychologists include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Exposure therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy

If you are weighed down by anxiety, depression, or another mental disorder, it might be time to seek out a solution. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant, SC are ready to help you move beyond your symptoms and chart a healthier path forward.
