Starting Psychologists

What is Psychologists?

Psychologists are mental health professionals that provide psychotherapy services and diagnoses for their clients. They have more research-focused training than most therapists, as they are more medically educated and receive a more general education about therapeutic approaches and theory.

How does Psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Salem, MA provide standard psychotherapy services, tailoring treatment to each client and their unique concerns. However, they can also provide diagnoses to clients when appropriate, something that therapists and counselors cannot do. Finally, in some states in the U.S., they are allowed to prescribe medication.

Is Psychologists conducted in person or online?

How long does Psychologists last?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Salem is very individualized and specific to each client, which means that the duration of treatment is often varied depending on a client's condition or disorder, the state of their symptoms, and their specific goals.

Need more help deciding?

It is hard to control, and even plan for, what life throws at us. One month you could be working out 7 times a week and eating healthy. The next month you could maybe make it to the gym once a week and you start eating fast food every day because your work schedule got busier. Or you could be planning your wedding and find out that a loved one passed away and have to grieve their loss during what’s supposed to be a very happy time. No matter the challenge you are facing, a psychologist can step in to help you through it.

When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks

grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.”

–Peter Marshall

The psychologists at Thriveworks Salem Counseling have a wide range of knowledge to help their clients through many different areas of life. They are dedicated to providing comfortable and accessible mental health services. If you are experiencing something challenging and feel like you could benefit from speaking with a therapist, we can help you. Call Thriveworks Salem Counseling to be connected with a psychologist that has the skills and tools you need to overcome any obstacle in your way.

Should I Work with a Psychologist? Will it Benefit Me?

The short answer: yes. The type of therapy you receive depends on your unique challenges and needs. For example, your friend might learn how to manage their stress and cope with stressors while you might work through the grieving process after you lost a loved one. In both cases, a Thriveworks Salem psychologist will get to know their client prior to creating a treatment plan.

There are many different mental health services we provide to our clients. Here are some of the things we can help you work through:

  • Feelings of hopelessness or loneliness
  • Relationship issues such as jealousy, lack of trust, lack of intimacy
  • Managing or overcoming an addiction
  • Struggling to cope with stress
  • Lack of fulfillment at work
  • Managing a mental illness such as anxiety or depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, etc.
  • How to better communicate with the people in your life
  • Struggling to cope and overcome past trauma
  • Problems within your family that you can’t overcome
  • How to parent better
  • Helping your child open up and talk about the situations they are facing
  • Managing anger issues and learning coping mechanisms
  • Struggling to sift through your emotions during or after a divorce
  • Financial stress from a lower-paying job, loss of a job, or general job changes
  • Major life changes such as moving to a new city or state, starting a whole new career, etc.

And more! This is just a small list of the services we provide to our clients. Depending on what you are going through, your psychologist will use the methods from one or more of these services to provide you with the most comprehensive plan of care. This just shows how beneficial a psychologist can be to you or a loved one.

The psychologists at Thriveworks Salem use many different techniques to help their clients. Different types of therapy could include talk therapy, narrative therapy, art therapy, and music therapy. In addition, they may recognize that their client could benefit from learning about meditation and breathing exercises. In the instances that a client might need to take medication to help what they are working through, they will work with a physician and/or psychiatrist to make the best decision for that client’s needs. No matter the case, you should know that your psychologist is dedicated to improving your mental health and being the support you need, when you need it.
