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 Missouri City, TX 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 Missouri City 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?

You may think you have nothing in common with the rap star Lizzo or England’s Prince Harry. However, you may be surprised to learn that both of these public figures have struggled with mental health issues. Lizzo has experienced depression and body dysmorphia while Prince Harry has suffered from panic attacks and other uncomfortable symptoms ever since the death of his mother Princess Diana when he was 12.

When Lizzo and Prince Harry sought help from mental health professionals, they were better able to cope with their issues and are now more content with their lives. Since then, they’ve spoken up publicly about their experiences to help raise awareness for mental health support and encourage others to reach out for help too.

Mental illness is more common than you might think. Millions of Americans every year struggle with depression, anxiety, and other mental and emotional disorders. Unfortunately, the remaining stigma around mental health problems discourages some people from ever seeking out the help they need.

When you have a toothache, you go to the dentist. When you feel physically ill, you see the doctor. Why should taking care of your mental health be any different than your physical health?

If you are feeling dissatisfied with your life, anxious about a big life transition, or another mental health issue, consider making an appointment with a licensed psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Sugar Land, TX.

Why Should I Work With a Psychologist?

There are many reasons people choose to consult with a psychologist. They may be suicidal, dealing with relationship issues, or having a tough time grieving the loss of a loved one. No matter what you might be feeling, talking with a psychologist can help you understand your emotions, why you might be feeling them, and help you move forward.

Some of the most common reasons people reach out to a psychologist include:

  • Relationship conflicts
  • Overeating or loss of interest in food
  • Big life transitions
  • Death of a loved one
  • Mood swings
  • Feeling isolated or alone
  • Social anxiety
  • Lack of interest in activities
  • Turning to substances to cope with difficult emotions
  • Excessive anger
  • Difficulty overcoming past trauma
  • Insomnia or other sleep problems
  • Behavioral problems
  • Learning disabilities

Psychologists can help you get to the root of whatever issues you may be facing. When you’re ready to make an appointment, our compassionate, licensed psychologists at Thriveworks Counseling in Sugar Land, TX are here to help.

The Ins and Outs of Psychological Treatment

Psychologists are trained professionals whose area of expertise is helping individuals with mental health issues. Their training involves both an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree in psychology, and some go on to earn a Ph.D. as well. This educational background gives clinical psychologists the ability to diagnose and treat mental health problems and help clients find greater happiness and fulfillment in life.

During psychological treatment, your provider will first take the time to learn about your situation. You’ll be encouraged to describe any symptoms you may be experiencing and to think through your goals for treatment. From there, your psychologist may incorporate one or more forms of talk therapy, or psychotherapy, to help you address your issues in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.

You’ll work together to change thoughts and behaviors that may be contributing to your symptoms and limiting your enjoyment of life. You may develop coping skills and distress tolerance techniques to help you get a handle on your emotions and respond more effectively in difficult situations. You may also learn self-care habits to give yourself a better chance of preventing mental health issues from surfacing in the first place.
