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 The Woodlands, 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 The Woodlands 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.

How Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?

Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers help people reach new heights in their personal lives through our online services. Some of the common conditions and disorders that psychiatrists help to treat include: 

  • ADHD 
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • Recovery from alcoholism or drug abuse
  • And many other mental health conditions 

It’s okay if you’re not sure of whether you have any of these mental health concerns. However, deciding if mental health services can benefit you is a personal choice. It’s better to be honest about the problems that stand in front of you than avoiding them. Sometimes, taking the time to truly evaluate and manage mental health allows us to be more fully present during the moments in our lives that count the most. 

Benefits of Online Psychiatry

If you’ve been considering whether you should connect with a mental health professional, online psychiatry offers a secure, convenient, and effective way for you to get quality mental health care without missing a beat. Psychiatric services at Thriveworks in The Woodlands offers you: 

  • Convenient scheduling options: For those who are busy, traveling, or just tired, getting the psychiatric services you need shouldn’t be harder. We offer weekend and evening session times, just for you. 
  • The chance to prioritize yourself, too: Online psychiatry is an easy way for those who take care of elderly relatives or watch children to find time to prioritize themselves, too. 
  • The ability to connect anywhere: There’s no need to travel to a brick-and-mortar office to fill a prescription or to attend a therapy session. 

And lastly, we know that there’s still stigma surrounding mental health topics, including the act of seeking professional assistance with your issues. Thankfully, meeting a provider virtually can be a lot less stressful than an in-person session. It’s just one of the many ways we’re doing our part to make therapy and psychiatric services a more comfortable experience.
