You know the saying: control the controllable. It’s good advice. We can all benefit from learning to focus on the things we can control and not worrying as much about the outside forces that we cannot directly impact.
But what happens when that task becomes difficult? What happens when life’s stresses become too much and current events or relationship issues make everything seem uncontrollable? What happens when we feel like we’re not in control of anything anymore, and those feelings begin affecting our mental and physical well-being in ways we could have never imagined?

Can a Psychiatrist Offer Me the Help I Need?
First, let’s understand what types of treatments a psychiatrist can provide. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the study, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders.
In addition to providing counseling through talk therapy, psychiatrists can monitor the effects of mental illnesses on physical health (through blood pressure, weight changes, lab work, or physical symptoms). Psychiatrists also can prescribe medications to help alleviate and treat symptoms of mental illness.
Many people face emotional disorders and mental health issues, with symptoms ranging from mild to acute. Psychiatrists treat a variety of complex and severe illnesses but they can also help you work through more mild disorders as well.
What symptoms or reasons might prompt you to consider seeing a psychiatrist? They could include one or more of the following:
- Mood swings
- Changes in personality
- Depression and anxiety
- Substance abuse
- Thoughts of self-harm
- Frequent outbursts of anger
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar disorder
If you are experiencing symptoms of a possible mental illness, consider making an appointment at Thriveworks in Lehi, UT. Our psychiatrists offer a safe and confidential opportunity for you to find a treatment option that’s right for you.
What’s Involved in Psychiatric Treatment?
As noted earlier, psychiatrists are medical doctors trained to treat mental illnesses. In addition to studying mental disorders, psychiatrists know how to differentiate those disorders from other medical conditions whose symptoms might present as mental illness. They have a license to prescribe medications, administer talk therapy, and provide a number of other treatment options.
Psychiatrists can choose from several types of talk therapy to create a specific treatment plan for your needs. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), for example, can help you examine and address unhealthy thinking patterns that might be contributing to your symptoms.
Prevention is another important aspect of psychiatric treatment. For people showing early signs of mental illness, psychiatrists can intervene with recommendations to help mitigate symptoms before they worsen.
No matter what you may be going through, you can rest assured that our psychiatrists are trained to tailor your treatment plan specifically to you. At Thriveworks Counseling in Lehi, UT, we customize care to fit your needs, your schedule, and your comfort level.
