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 Fort Worth, 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 Fort Worth 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.

Fort Worth, TX Psychiatry – Meet With Board-Certified Psychiatric Providers

Psychiatry is the study and treatment of mental disorders, unusual behaviors, and emotional disturbances. Medical doctors who specialize in psychiatry are called psychiatrists. These individuals are mental health experts who assess their clients’ symptoms, make diagnoses, and offer treatment for their disorder(s).

You’re probably wondering who should talk to a psychiatrist and, perhaps, if you should talk to a psychiatrist. Consider the following questions:

  • Have you been feeling depressed or anxious?
  • Are you experiencing symptoms of another mental illness?
  • Have you exhibited behaviors that are abnormal for you?
  • Do you feel like you’re losing control of your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider talking to a psychiatric provider. As we said before, psychiatric providers specialize in the study and treatment of mental health conditions. They have dedicated many years to studying, understanding, assessing, and treating mental disorders. If you are experiencing symptoms, they can help.

Thriveworks Counseling in Fort Worth, TX has psychiatric providers on our team who can help you. We want you to know that you can trust to work with a skilled and caring provider here. Better yet, you can work with one of our skilled and caring providers from the comfort of your home. Our psychiatric providers help their clients in telehealth sessions, by phone or video. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Illness

Psychiatric providers are able to perform a variety of psychologists tests, which enable them to better understand what their client is dealing with. This, paired with the client’s self-report of symptoms, often enables the psychiatric provider to make a correct diagnosis and then design an effective treatment plan. Not to mention that they have a complex understanding of mental illness and how it relates to our emotions and behaviors, due to their many years of schooling and training.

Psychiatrists also utilize a range of treatments. They are equipped to lead psychotherapy, prescribe medication, and perform other interventions that help the individual manage their symptoms. The form of treatment that they recommend will depend on the individual’s specific needs.

A major difference between psychiatrists/psychiatric providers and other mental health professionals is that they can prescribe and manage one’s medication. Medication proves to be an important treatment method for many individuals, which makes working with a psychiatric provider vital as well. 

What Illnesses Can Be Improved with the Help of a Psychiatrist?

As we’ve explained, psychiatric providers know many different mental health conditions well. They are able to assess, diagnose, and design a plan of treatment for people who are experiencing…

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Hallucinations
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Thoughts of hurting others
  • Memory issues

Additionally, there are psychiatric providers who specialize in certain areas like child psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and forensic psychiatry. 

If you are experiencing any of the above problems or you think that you should consult a psychiatric provider due to another problem, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

I love my Dr Odu-Onikosi. But I have had several very bad experiences with the appt makers and supervisors over the appt making ( if there are any supervisors ....as no one has ever called me back ) The mis information they provide is gross and straight up not correct. You are probably losing patients over this as if I didn't like my Dr so much this second instance would have made me stop using Thrive for my needs all together.
