What Are Psychiatrists?

A psychiatrist is someone who specializes in psychiatric medication. They have the knowledge, skills, training, and experience to help an individual find the right medication for them, based on their illness and specific symptoms. Duties of psychiatrists include:

  • Evaluating their client’s symptoms and needs
  • Finding a medication that meets their client’s needs
  • Continually monitoring their client’s use of their medication
  • Adjusting the client’s medication as needed

Now, an online psychiatrist is simply a psychiatrist who conducts their work online! Now, there are certain instances in which one might need to go into the office for an evaluation or check-up, but primarily speaking, the psychiatrists at Thriveworks Newport News can provide their clients with medication management services virtually.

What Mental Disorders Might Need Medication?

Psychiatric medication can help to treat many different mental illnesses by alleviating certain symptoms. Here are a few specific examples of the mental illnesses that medication might help to relieve:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD surfaces after one experiences a traumatic or disturbing event, such as physical abuse, mental abuse, military combat, a natural disaster, or even the death of a loved one. Symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Hypervigilance
  • Anxiety
  • Loneliness and social isolation
  • Loss of interest in day to day
  • Emotional detachment

Fortunately, PTSD is highly treatable and both therapy and medication prove effective. If you’re experiencing symptoms of PTSD, our providers can provide you with therapy and/or help you find a medication that will help.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is a very serious type of depression, which new moms (as well as soon-to-be moms) might experience. Symptoms of postpartum depression include:

  • Depressive thoughts and feelings
  • Reduced interest in day to day
  • Thoughts of harming herself or her baby
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Changes in appetite/weight
  • Severe mood swings

Again, postpartum depression is a treatable mental health condition, and both therapy and medication prove beneficial. To be more specific, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can alleviate symptoms of postpartum depression.

Comfortable relief

My therapist Pe'atra was easy to open up to. She was understanding and knowledgeable about what I was feeling and gave me great guidance in solutions. I was feeling overwhelmed and I needed to free the clutter in my head and she helped me get clarity. I have attainable goals to move forward. I would definitely recommend Pe'atra to friends and family, she is very intelligent, warm spirited and easy to talk to.

Child Counseling Services

My son has met with Mrs. Kimberly Green for about 4 sessions thus far. At first I wasn’t sure if counseling would be something my 10 year old would be open to or beneficial. Mrs. Green took her time to truly understand what my concerns were and what my son needed from counseling. Her approach was very compassionate and warm. Although my son was not open to the idea of counseling every session she somehow gets him to open up more and more. Every session we do a recap to ensure all needs were met and outline whatever discussions that will continue next session. If you are looking for a great children therapist look no further than Mrs. Kimberly Green.

My therapist rocks!

Working with Alise has been awesome. She takes the time to listen to the full story and validate my experiences so I can recognize how I feel is normal even if my experiences are not normal. She is kind, doesn’t judge me and very supportive. Like the subject line says I truly enjoy working with her; she has helped me so much.
