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 Stamford, CT 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 Stamford 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.

Can a Psychologist Help Me? Should I Work with a Psychologist?

Psychologists can provide value to many people for different reasons. One person might begin working with a psychologist to manage their depression or anxiety through talk therapy and/or medication, while another person might meet with a psychologist for their guidance on a relationship issue. As you can see, the issues that one presents to their psychologist can vary greatly. Here’s a more comprehensive list:

  • Learning to manage a mental illness
  • Healing post-breakup or divorce
  • Grieving the loss of a loved one

What Techniques Are Used by Psychologists?

The psychologists and counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Stamford, CT use a broad range of techniques and tools to help their clientele improve their wellbeing and reach new heights. Often, they will use therapy to understand each client’s needs, which will then inform the treatment plan they create to help the individual burst through their specific roadblock(s). This means that in order to make progress with your psychologist, you might have to open up about some difficult topics. But don’t worry, it will only benefit you in the end!

In some cases, a client can best benefit from a combination of talk therapy and medication. If this is the case, your psychologist will likely work with your primary care physician and/or a psychiatrist to prescribe and manage the individual’s medication. In some states, however, a psychologist can do so without the assistance of another healthcare provider. Either way, if you have an illness that requires or benefits from medication, your Thriveworks psychologist will help you obtain and manage your medication.

Emily’s warmth and compassion resonates with me and her attentive approach has enhanced my experience. The work of healing is crucial and it starts with a therapist that is relatable, sincere and authentic. This can easily assist in removing the stigma of “mental health” and steer the narrative towards emotional balance & wellness. She challenges me to approach my healing with identifying the root of my triggers while being open and honest with all the facts. Most importantly, it’s my work to understand how the facts and old narratives has shaped my life and she provides me with updated tools & expertise to tackle my PTSD. Emily’s skillful approach is helping me to forge ahead and truly heal in the most pragmatic and authentic way.
