North Charleston, SC Psychiatry – Meet With Board-Certified Psychiatrists

Have you ever felt like you were falling behind your peers, not able to control your emotions, or been unable to concentrate? These are all potential signs that there might be an underlying mental disorder. For instance, you might have a learning disability, suffer from bipolar disorder, or have undiagnosed ADHD. Regardless of what problem you’re facing, one thing remains the same: mental health challenges are difficult to deal with on your own.

Take Roxanne, for example. After she gave birth to her first child, her relationship with her husband became rocky and almost ended. They constantly argued and were never on the same page. Roxanne’s family recommended that she talk to a professional and, as it turns out, she was battling postpartum depression.

Roxanne was able to quickly get the help she needed thanks to a strong support system. However, that’s not always the case for everyone. In some instances, people don’t seek the professional treatment they need until it’s been years of battling their mental illness.

If you have noticed a change in yourself or are ready to get answers to the problems you’ve been dealing with for some time now, consider working with Thriveworks Counseling in North Charleston, SC. Our psychiatrists are ready to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to get you back on your feet. They are board certified and specialize in a wide range of mental health conditions.

What Is a Psychiatrist? What Do They Do?

A psychiatrist is a medical professional who is specialized in the field of psychiatry. These individuals have received extensive education and medical training on properly evaluating and treating a wide array of mental health conditions, including postpartum depression, social anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other psychiatric mental health issues. 

A psychiatrist will be able to help determine whether your symptoms are due to a medical cause or something else. Once a diagnosis has been made, a psychiatrist can recommend a medication that is designed to treat the biological factors associated with your diagnosis. 

If taking psychiatric medication is the right course of treatment for you, your psychiatrist will ensure you have the correct dosage and know exactly what time of day to take it. When starting medication, be sure to disclose any allergies you may have, your past medical history, and any concerns you might have.

What Disorders Can Be Treated Through Psychiatry?

  • Anxiety Disorders: Generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder
  • Learning Disorders: Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia

We understand that you might not even know what you’re battling. If you’re experiencing unusual symptoms or emotional unrest, our psychiatrists can assess you and provide you with an accurate diagnosis. Here are some signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for:

  • Experiencing hallucinations or delusions
  • Obsessively thinking

Emily Frichtl is amazing

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
