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 Pearland, 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 Pearland 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?

At Thriveworks, our psychiatric providers help thousands of clients manage their mental health conditions. But a lot of people aren’t familiar with what psychiatry is all about, and they don’t know how it can benefit them. Essentially, psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers have the expertise of both professions wrapped up into one. They help treat and diagnose emotional and behavioral disorders that affect everyday people, like ADHD, depression, or even anxiety. 

We’re confident that we’ve got the psychiatric provider that’s right for you at our Pearland, TX office or any of our other 240 locations and counting across the U.S. Just like the rest of our hand-selected mental health professionals, the psychiatric providers at Thriveworks are dedicated to improving the lives of our clients. 

What Are the Benefits of Online Psychiatry?

Most Thriveworks clients utilize our online services for their mental health needs. You might be curious about how it works; here are some of the reasons why online psychiatry is so popular: 

  • There’s no need to travel to a brick-and-mortar office to fill a prescription or to attend a therapy session. As long as you’ve got a solid internet connection and somewhere private to talk with your psychiatric provider, you’re set. 
  • Sometimes life just gets in the way; if you’re busy, traveling, or even just tired, why make getting the psychiatric services you need harder than necessary? Online sessions grant you lots of flexibility to schedule treatment when it’s needed.
  • Our clients have their own lives—some are taking care of elderly relatives or watching children. Online sessions are an easy way for them to find time to prioritize themselves, too. 
  • Anxiety: Let’s face it—meeting virtually can be a lot less stressful than meeting your provider in person. While we always strive to eliminate some of the stigma surrounding seeking mental health services, online therapy is a go-to resource for making psychiatric treatment as comfortable as possible. 

If any of these benefits sound appealing, it could be helpful to consider the reasons why you’ve felt prevented from or resistant to seeking psychiatric services. 

How Online Psychiatry Can Benefit Me? 

We’ve explained what a psychiatric provider is, and why meeting with them online is so popular. But in addition, it’s also important that you know what a psychiatric provider can treat, and how your client-provider relationship will work. Generally speaking, psychiatrists help clients who are suffering from behavioral or emotional disorders. These include, but aren’t limited to: 

  • PTSD 
  • Bipolar Disorder 
  • OCD 
  • Anxiety Disorders 
  • Depression 
  • ADHD 
  • Schizophrenia 
  • Eating disorders
  • Alcohol or drug addiction 

Psychiatric providers are (quite literally) experts at understanding and diagnosing disorders, ones that are disruptive to the lives of everyday people. But they don’t diagnose these conditions through shaming or judgment. Psychiatrists see their clients’ disorders through a healing-oriented lens. The psychiatric providers at Thriveworks in Pearland, TX, are motivated by cultivating a client-provider relationship that’s focused on the growth and personal progress of everyone that they see. 

As we’ve mentioned, psychiatric providers can prescribe helpful medications for their clients and some treatment plans included behavioral or talk therapy sessions in combination with a prescription. Even if you’re unsure about whether psychiatric services will benefit you, give our Pearland, TX office a call. Our scheduling specialists will provide you with the resources you need.

V Ashleigh was excellent. I wish we had more sessions with her but insurance tangled us up. Counseling via Zoom was my first. It takes longer to get acquainted when not in person. But it was convenient.
