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 Carrollton, TX 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 Carrollton 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 occurs 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.

What Is Psychiatry?  

Psychiatry, as we mentioned before, can use medication to treat the symptoms of mental health conditions. Compared to therapy alone, psychiatry may be able to more effectively help clients manage symptoms of moderate to severe forms of: 

 Our psychiatric nurse practitioners will use their skills to: 

  • Work with you to understand and diagnose any issues or stressors that they identify 
  • Find a combination of therapy, and possibly medication, to improve their client’s quality of life
  • Create unique approaches to complex issues
  • Improve quality of life and confidence for clients

Is Psychiatry Right for Me?

It depends on the individual and the mental health condition or issues that they’re experiencing. Every client at Thriveworks is unique, so not everyone will utilize online psychiatric care. Some clients find the same benefits and notice similar progress from connecting with a therapist or psychologist instead.

Some of the medications that psychiatrists prescribe include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, or prescriptions like cognitive performance enhancers. These medications aren’t intended to fix an individual’s problems on their own, but they can give some individuals the extra help they need to enjoy a better quality of life. 

Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers use these medications as needed, balancing them with dynamic therapy sessions that aim to help clients feel empowered and prepared—not limited. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these issues, our psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are here to help.
