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 Tigard, OR 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 Tigard 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.

Charles Darwin once stated, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” Though this is the theory of evolution by natural selection in a nutshell, it’s also great motivation to go to therapy. You can be the smartest person in every room you enter, but if you can’t harness the psychological insights necessary to achieve good mental health, you’re still going to have trouble coping with daily stress and adversity. 

The licensed psychologists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR have the expertise, compassion, and experience to help clients grow as human beings, whether they need support in their relationships, with mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, or with developing practical strategies for improving their lives. 

Why Mental Health Is Important

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of good mental health. It drives our decisions, our relationships, and our feelings. It determines how we relate to people and how well we cope with the stressors of daily life. It helps us achieve our goals and realize our fullest potential. Mental health can be influenced by a wide range of factors, including genetic, environmental, and social. Our life experiences and our early family life can also have a broad impact on our mental health. 

So how do you achieve good mental health? One of the best ways to find your psychological strengths and work on your weaknesses is through professional therapy. The licensed psychologists, counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR can diagnose, treat, and help prevent mental health conditions. But they can also help clients improve their mental outlooks in general through evidence-based, effective approaches. 

What Is a Mental Disorder?

A mental disorder is a psychological condition that causes significant stress and disruptions in daily functioning. The psychotherapists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR can help clients who are struggling with any of the following mental health disorders:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) 
  • Eating disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

To accurately diagnose a mental disorder, a Thriveworks psychologist will perform a full evaluation, taking a client’s medical and family history, performing tests, and asking the patient about a wide range of feelings and experiences.

What Should I Look for in a Psychologist?

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.
