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 Georgetown, 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 Georgetown 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 is 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.

Need more help deciding?

The psychiatrists and board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners 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 psychiatric providers tailor treatment plans to each client’s goals. They might use medication 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.

If you think you could benefit from talking to a psychiatric provider, reach out to Thriveworks in Georgetown, TX today to schedule your first appointment.

What Is a Psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is a doctor of medicine who graduated from medical school after specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental health disorders like depression and anxiety. Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers 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.

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 psychiatric provider 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 psychiatric providers 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

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.

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.

When my husband and I went to see Linda we were falling apart. She provided the tools we needed to pick up the pieces and heal our marriage. She is very knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and tough when she needs to be. She is a blessing from God to us and I would highly recommend her.

I have always thought counseling wasn't for me; however, after being paired with Linda Mekesic, I was proven wrong. I was able to open up and learn from the grief that I didn't realize I was holding on to. It was a blessing and Linda and Thriveworks is a hidden blessing that I am glad I stumbled across.

I was never open to counseling but moving to Texas and having special people enter into my life, well I became open to it but knew I needed a special person and that is when Linda Mikesic came into my life. I thought I was there for letting my son move on and found out that I held onto a lot of grief of losing my husband and Linda had a special way of making me feel safe and that it was ok to feel again. I am so thankful and grateful that she helped me and I continue to use the tools that she taught me.

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.
