The author William Gibson once stated, “When you want to know how things really work, study them when they’re coming apart.” All too often people don’t seek professional psychological services until they’re in distress or experiencing a crisis. And in those times, exceptional psychologists can provide immediate treatment and relief. That’s an example of closely examining one’s life when it seems to be coming apart. It’s an essential service that everyone deserves.
But licensed psychologists can also help people when they’re dealing with the ordinary static of life: work stress, marital conflicts, parenting issues. Psychologists can help prepare clients for future adversity by teaching them effective coping strategies and cognitive techniques. You don’t have to be in crisis to benefit from the wisdom of an exceptional psychologist.
The mental health providers at Thriveworks in Rowlett, TX are all fully licensed, highly qualified, compassionate, knowledgeable, and top-rated in their psychological field. No matter what a client’s issue, question, or obstacle is, there’s a provider at Thriveworks who can help that client achieve their life goals.
Why Is Mental Health Important?
Mental health is important because it impacts every aspect of a person’s life, from their career to their family to their marriage to their attitudes. But sometimes people don’t recognize that they’d been enjoying mental health until something comes along to disrupt it.
For example, a generally happy person may experience a bout of major depression. Or something may come up at work that begins triggering anxiety and panic attacks at home. Mental health disorders can interfere with daily functioning and cause a wide range of problems. But psychologists at Thriveworks in Rowlett, TX can help.
Is a Clinical Psychologist a Doctor?
A clinical psychologist or a counseling psychologist may have an advanced doctorate degree, but they are not medical doctors, thus they cannot prescribe medication. Here is a full roster of mental health providers clients may encounter at Thriveworks in Rowlett, TX:
- Psychologists (PsyDs or PhDs) can do specialized psychotherapy (talk therapy) like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
- Psychiatrists (MDs) can prescribe medication and do psychotherapy.

What Is the Connection Between Mental Health and Addiction?
Many people with untreated mental health disorders are at risk for developing a comorbid (simultaneous) addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, or something else. This is because maladaptive behaviors can sometimes serve as a coping strategy for dealing with pain and stress. The trouble is, the comorbid addictions can become their own long-term problem and can complicate recovery.
