Online Psychiatry in Georgetown, TX—Licensed Psychiatrists Near Me

The actress Torrey DeVitto once stated, “When you cry out in pain from a broken wrist, no one questions it. You just go to the hospital and take the necessary steps. Mental illness is just as real, even if it can’t be seen.” Mental health conditions can be even more debilitating than broken bones, affecting not only one’s physical movements, but thoughts and feelings as well. But there are ways to treat mental health concerns compassionately and individualistically, so someone can achieve the level of functioning they wish to achieve without sacrificing who they are. This requires the guidance of an insightful, highly-qualified psychiatrist.

The psychiatrists and board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNP-BSs) at Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX are all fully licensed and equipped to handle a wide range of concerns, from behavioral issues to autism to personality disorders. Thriveworks psychiatrists tailor treatment plans to each client’s goals. They might use medication treatment or different forms of psychotherapy to help address a client’s symptoms. These psychiatric medical doctors and providers treat the person, not the psychiatric disorder, so Thriveworks clients can get the best support available.

What Is a Psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is a doctor of medicine (MD) who graduated from medical school after specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental health disorders like depression and anxiety. Psychiatrists understand how underlying neurological issues can contribute to emotional, cognitive, and behavioral issues. They are qualified to prescribe medications like antidepressants to treat conditions like depression and anxiety.

Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX offers a full suite of psychiatric services as well as additional mental health support. Here’s a quick guide to how psychiatrists differ from other Thriveworks mental health professionals: 

  • Psychologists (PhDs or PsyDs). These providers use psychotherapy (talk therapy) to help people understand themselves and overcome their obstacles. 
  • Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNP). These are specially licensed advanced practice nurses (APRNs) who can prescribe medications and treat psychiatric issues. 
  • Therapist. This is a somewhat generic term for any provider who is licensed to do talk therapy. 
  • Licensed professional counselors (LPCs). These providers offer solution-focused counseling.
  • Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs). These providers have masters degrees in social work and can counsel clients. 
  • Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs). These providers treat individuals, couples, and families.

When Should You See a Psychiatrist?

Mental health conditions can manifest in a variety of ways, from mild to acute. But as a general rule, if you are having difficulty functioning at home, school, work, or in your personal relationships, you may benefit from an assessment with a psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX. Someone who could profit from psychiatric services might notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme mood swings 
  • Sadness or despair that lasts longer than two weeks 
  • Extreme fears and worries 
  • Focus or attention difficulties
  • Disordered eating behaviors 
  • Mania
  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • Lethargy
  • Repetitive behaviors
  • Obsessive thoughts

How Long Does It Take to Get a Mental Health Diagnosis?

Every person is different, thus every psychiatric affliction is different, no matter what the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) says. But qualified psychiatrists like those at Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX can look for commonalities between diagnoses. They can also perform a comprehensive initial assessment of a client, which may include the following elements:

  • Medical history of both client and family
  • Psychological tests
  • Discussion of symptoms
  • Psychoeducation 
  • Discussion of lifestyle (nutrition, exercise, etc.)
  • Discussion about client’s psychosocial environment

Depending on the information the psychiatrist collects, they may use their clinical judgment to determine that someone has a condition like bipolar disorder (manic depression) or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Or they may determine that the client does not have a psychiatric condition and is simply in need of psychotherapy in order to achieve their goals. This clinical process can take anywhere from one session to many sessions, depending on complexity.

Does Psychiatry Work?

Psychiatry at Thriveworks has helped thousands of clients reduce their symptoms and regain balance in their lives. At Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX, psychiatry isn’t just about medication management and prescriptions. It’s can also involve talk therapy and holistic interventions like the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Exposure therapy, especially for specific phobias

  • Mindfulness 
  • Meditation training 
  • Nutrition and exercise

Thriveworks Counseling Georgetown

Ashley

★★★★★
I thought our marriage was over. I only gave him one option (counseling) or I was leaving. I wanted him to do it because he realized he had to make some changes in his thinking and his life...for his own happiness. The first counselor he tolerated for 1 session. I told him to do his own homework and he found Ashley on his own. The fact that my husband has been in her counseling for close to 2 years is truly amazing. This was one man who I totally expected to do 3-4 sessions and then decide it wasn't for him and then I would just consider divorce because our life was intolerable for me. He has learned things about himself that now make him very thoughtful about things and about what matters in his life and in our life. I am so appreciative for Ashley.

Amazing!!!

★★★★★
Absolutely love everything about Lindsey. She is amazing with my son (age 6). It has helped him so so so much and helped me parent the way he needs. I am so glad we were able to start seeing her and continue seeing her. He loves going to therapy and since we started his behavior has become so much better. Being a single mom of two, I'm glad he get specific attention from someone who cares. Thank you! I would give 10 stars if I could.

Excellent therapist

★★★★★
Linda Mikesic is a fantastic therapist and person. She has a compassion and love for others that can’t be taught. Being a mental health care provider, I am always looking for therapists to refer patients to. Therapists I can count on to treat my patients with love and respect. I've known Linda and collaborated with her for 3 years and fits that definition every time. I know when I refer my patients to Linda, that they will get individualized compassionate person-centered care.

Linda Mikesic is amazing.

★★★★★
I started seeing Linda Mikesic in 2016 when my soulmate cat died suddenly and in a horrible way and I was consumed with grief. The death of my cat brought up several unresolved issues in my life and I desperately needed someone to help me and to give me tools to want to wake up in the morning and face life once again. I had gone through a very traumatic experience and Linda walked me though step by step to heal showing me what was broken inside of me and how to move through my grief. I was stuck and she listened to me and was strong and gave me the tools to get unstuck and to feel joy in my life once again. I will be forever indebted to her for showing me the light in life once again. Anyone who can get an appointment with her will be very lucky. She is involved from day one and she cares and is accessible via text and email and from the first session will give you tools and help to make you feel like you can see things in a different way. Such a cool lady and such an amazing professional. I love that she is strong. Just go and see her do not hesitate. She never minimized my grief and I felt tremendously safe and supported by her. She is a ROCK STAR. Forever grateful for meeting this woman.

Linda's insight provided me a customized process for identifying, understanding and addressing the root causes of my issues. Cognitive therapy at its finest! While I am a work in process Linda was instrumental in assisting me in bringing me to a place where I have never felt better. I will continue to use the tools she provided daily to grow confidently and live a fulfilling life! I enthusiastically recommend Linda. At the same time I encourage you to take responsibility for the assignments she provides so as to facilitate recovery.
