Starting Psychiatry/medication

What is psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses specifically on the medical and psychotherapeutic treatment of mental conditions and disorders.

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 Round Rock, TX specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

Does psychiatry deal with anxiety?

Psychiatrists are among the mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication, and they are also capable of offering therapeutic treatment for anxiety as well, though not every psychiatric professional offers therapy. Medication management can be offered via in-person or online psychiatry.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist and psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, thought 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's the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

Psychologists and psychiatrists receive differing educations, as psychologists are not medically trained the same way that psychiatrists are. Psychologists mainly specialize in providing therapy services and diagnoses for mental disorders — something that most therapists cannot provide — while psychiatrists manage medications and sometimes provide therapy services. The main difference is that psychologists (generally) cannot prescribe medications the way psychiatrists can.

Do psychiatric NPs treat mental disorders?

Psychiatric nurse practitioners (NPs) treat and diagnose disorders, prescribe and manage medications, and offer psychotherapy services, too.

How do psychiatriac 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.

Is psychiatry/medication conducted in person or online?

At Thriveworks, we offer online psychiatry as well as in-person therapy services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Round Rock 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 years. treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client's goals for treatment.

What Is Psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a mental health field that focuses on diagnosing and treating mental health conditions. Unlike other mental health professionals, psychiatrists and psychiatric NPs can utilize medications (known as medication management) to treat mental health conditions.

With their strong medical background, these providers can assist clients in unique ways. Psychiatric professionals can: 

  • Diagnose and treat persistent or severe mental health disorders and conditions 
  • Prescribe helpful medication to alleviate a client’s symptoms
  • Use a combinative approach with both therapy and prescriptions 

Psychiatrists and psychiatric NPs are also able to collaborate with therapists, social workers, and counselors to offer medication management services together with therapy. And for some conditions, especially complex ones like anxiety, treatment with medication and psychotherapy is far more effective than either treatment on its own.

But in general, only psychiatrists and psychiatric NPs can prescribe medications, while psychologists, counselors, and therapists can not.

Is Psychiatry Right for Me?

One of the benefits of psychiatry and medication management is the wide swath of mental health conditions that can be treated with the right prescription. This means NPs and psychiatrists are experts at getting to know their clients so that they get it right when diagnosing different mental health conditions. 

Some of the general symptoms that many clients report led them to seek psychiatry and medication services include:

  • Extreme fears or anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive thinking or behavioral patterns
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Hallucinations or delusions
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Self-harm
  • Grief
  • Alcohol use or gambling
  • Changes in appetite, eating habits, or problems with body image
  • Concentration, focus, and memory issues
  • Changes in energy levels
  • Issues of violence and aggression
  • Trauma
  • Feelings of despair or worthlessness

Some mental health issues can be caused by underlying medical issues, substance use, or new medications. A psychiatrist or nurse practitioner will first want to rule out physiological causes for your distress. This may involve a full physical assessment in addition to your psychological intake.

How Can Thriveworks Psychiatry Help You?

Our psychiatrists are expert listeners. If you’re considering psychiatric services, it’s best to know that generally, psychiatrists are better equipped to treat more severe cases of mental health disorders and conditions that ordinary therapy measures might not help to alleviate.

  • ADHD 
  • OCD 
  • Eating disorders
  • Recovery from alcoholism or drug abuse

Telehealth and Psychiatry

Online psychiatry, also called telepsychiatry or telehealth, simply refers to psychiatric services that are provided over a secure internet or cellular connection. This offers a lot of benefits for the client, as it means that you don’t have to visit your doctor or nurse practitioner at an office or clinic.

I was skeptical at first about having my teenage son see a therapist via online care because of his reluctance to attend therapy, his history, and his trauma. But Madison Vencill has been absolutely AMAZING! I cannot express how well my son has done with therapy with Madison. She was super patient with him and let him open up at his own pace. She truly cares about her patients and always has my son’s best interest at heart. She is always quick to alert me to any concerns while at the same time not betraying my son’s confidence. She responds to emails typically within a couple of hours. She is just an all around amazing therapist!! Now whenever my son is upset or stressed he always says he will “talk to Madison” about it! She is hands down AMAZING and has done wonders for my teenage son. Thank you Madison for helping my son!

I look forward in continuing my therapy journey with Mary in all my years to come.

Aimee Corona is incredibly skilled, compassionate, encouraging, and knows when to exercise "tough love" to help the client become more confident and guide them through their recovery. She has a very whole person approach and works to get to know the client without judgment. Her goal in our family and individual treatment has been to help us heal, grow, and become more confident independently. She has always held our best interest at heart and is incredibly professional. I highly recommend Ms. Corona.
