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 Shreveport, LA 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 Shreveport 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.

Your mental health is the key to a happy, fulfilled life. If you’ve ever felt like Sarah, David, Gabriella, or Cody, you know how difficult it can be to live with a mental health issue. By taking your mental health seriously and seeking help from a licensed professional, you give yourself the opportunity to reduce your symptoms and live life to the fullest.

Dealing with a mental health issue can be challenging but you don’t have to go it alone. Working with a psychologist can help.

Psychologists are licensed mental health professionals with specialized training in diagnosing and treating mental illness. Each psychologist may have a specialty area of practice where they have extra training in treating a specific condition, but all psychologists have extensive training in helping people manage various kinds of mental health concerns and challenges.

If you want to speak with a licensed psychologist from Thriveworks Counseling in Shreveport, LA, call our office today. Our scheduling team can get you set up with your first in-person or remote appointment.

Should I See a Psychologist?

One of the biggest myths about psychologists is that they only help people with severe mental health issues. The reality is that you can benefit from working with a psychologist if you’re dealing with any level of long-term or short-term mental distress. As long as you’re willing to put in the effort to address your concerns, a psychologist can help guide you through a customized form of treatment so you can live your best life.

Clinical psychologists can treat a wide variety of mental health challenges and situations, including:

  • Anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and phobias
  • Major depressive disorder and other forms of depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Mood disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Personality disorders
  • Excess stress
  • Relationship issues

Your licensed psychologist will provide a comfortable, confidential environment where you can discuss your issues and find relief. They’ll work with you to understand your needs, goals, and desires so you can live a happier and healthier life. When you’re ready to work with a psychologist, consider reaching out to us at Thriveworks Counseling in Shreveport, LA.

Psychological Treatment: What To Expect

Psychologists spend many years earning an advanced degree, which gives them the ability to test, diagnose, and treat mental illness. They are equipped to administer psychological tests as part of a comprehensive diagnostic process and are able to differentiate between mental health conditions that present with similar symptoms.

Many treatment plans will involve some form of talk therapy. Talk therapy is a provider-guided conversation where you’ll address your concerns and learn the skills necessary to manage the symptoms of your specific mental issue.

Your counseling psychologist will choose a form of therapy that makes sense for your specific needs. Depending on your goals, therapy can help you:

  • Reduce stress
  • Learn more effective communication skills
  • Reframe negative thought patterns
  • Change or reduce harmful behaviors
  • Process grief or loss
  • Overcome family issues
  • Solve conflicts or resolve disagreements
  • Mitigate depression or anxiety symptoms
  • Identify your values

Psychologists can also advise you on the potential benefit of medication for treating any mental health issues. Some psychologists can prescribe medication in the state of Louisiana after completing a specific master’s degree program. However, most psychologists will often work with a psychiatrist or other medical professional if prescribed medication would be helpful for your situation.

Working with a psychologist can help you endure a difficult time in your life or work through a challenging health issue you’re living with. If you’re experiencing symptoms that are making it difficult to live the life you want, call us at Thriveworks in Shreveport, LA to set up a psychology appointment.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
