Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are 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 do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Springfield, MO 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.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Springfield 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?

There will be times throughout your life where situations will weigh you down and take hold of your mental health. They may sometimes follow a challenging or traumatizing life event but they can also happen for what feels like no reason at all.

In these moments, you may begin to feel that you are alone in the world. Your anxiety or depression will tell you that there is no end in sight and that you’ll just have to wait and hope these feelings will eventually subside. But you’re not alone. During the most difficult periods of your life, it’s important to know that you can seek counseling with a trusted licensed mental health professional.

Thriveworks psychologists located in Springfield, MO are here to listen and offer you the help you need. Our licensed counselors understand that everyone’s situation is unique and can provide the professional psychological therapy services that are just right for your specific needs.

The Importance of Taking Your Mental Health Seriously

If your mental health issues have been worsening recently, it’s important to take them seriously. They can result in a variety of long-term mental and physical health symptoms. That’s because your mental health doesn’t just affect your thoughts and emotions, but your physical health as well. For example, poor mental health can lead to changes in your sleep habits, ability to concentrate, and can even cause bodily aches or pains.

As you learn to better understand the connection between your mind and body, you’ll be able to recognize your mental health triggers. Thriveworks’ Springfield psychologists will support you in identifying these triggers and will provide you with strategies to help keep them at bay. Doing so can positively impact your happiness and energy levels, and also help prevent other illnesses associated with poor mental health.

Many people find it difficult to open up and talk about their struggles but our licensed psychologists make therapy engaging, comfortable and effective. Thriveworks counseling in Springfield, MO offers psychology therapy that helps individuals take control over their lives once again.

When Should I See a Psychologist?

Clinical psychology experts look for certain indicators to gauge whether a client would benefit from a form of talk therapy, like cognitive behavioral therapy. Some of the more obvious examples include a drastic decrease in productivity and motivation at work or school, having a difficult time leaving your bed in the morning, or turning to substances to take your mind off of your worries.

But there are other indicators that will let you know it’s time to talk to a Springfield, MO psychologist. Here are a few:

  • Changes in sleep patterns or appetite: Have you noticed yourself struggling to fall and stay asleep? Or are you tired no matter how much you sleep? Changes in sleep habits may be a sign of anxiety or depression.
  • Changes in appetite: Does food not seem as appetizing as it once was? Or are you perhaps eating much more than you used to? Significant changes to your appetite could also be a symptom of mental illness.
  • Problems building and maintaining relationships: Be on the lookout if your behavior in relationships begins to change. Concerning signs include withdrawing from close family members and friends, feeling insecure, higher degrees of conflict with people, and having trouble communicating and expressing how you feel.
  • Prior traumatizing experiences: If you’ve had a history of physical or sexual abuse, you’re more likely to suffer from mental health challenges. That’s especially the case if you’ve never had an opportunity to properly process your trauma. Talking to a mental health counselor can help you overcome your painful experiences and confidently develop better and positive coping strategies.

There are many reasons that people decide to reach out to a psychologist for help. Consider reaching out if you’ve been experiencing overwhelming emotions, are having difficulty concentrating on tasks, or are generally feeling “stuck” in your life.
