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 Topeka, KS 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 Topeka 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?

It can be easy to discount the difficult times we go through as just a part of life. But struggling with mental health isn’t something you need to just tolerate. If you’re feeling lost, overwhelmed, and unsure of how to help yourself, reaching out to a mental health professional can empower you to find your footing again. Our psychologists at Thriveworks in Topeka, KS are here to help you do just that. Reach out today to get started.

Would Psychology Appointments Be Right for Me?

If you have any concerns about your mental health, big or small, seeing a psychologist could be a great option for you. Psychologists help clients with a range of issues, from mental health problems to relationship difficulties.

Some reasons you might seek out the help of a clinical psychologist include:

  • Trouble dealing with major life changes
  • Feeling a loss of control
  • Disordered eating patterns
  • Relationship struggles
  • Anxiety or panic disorders
  • Substance abuse issues
  • Feelings of low-self esteem
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Persistent and excessive stress

The Ins and Outs of Psychological Treatment

Licensed psychologists are highly trained professionals who have earned doctoral degrees, passed licensing exams, and gone through clinical training. Their specialty area is in examining the human mind, our behaviors, and the way we think. They are equipped to diagnose and treat mental health issues, both big and small.

One way psychologists work with clients is through talk therapy. One of the most common types of talk therapy is called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps people identify the frames they use to see the world and readjust any negative thoughts that are harmful to functional thoughts, moods, and behavior.

There are many different other kinds of therapy, including dialectical behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, exposure therapy, narrative therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). What therapy you receive will depend on what your psychologist practices and what they determine will be most beneficial to whatever issue you’re facing.

Of course, there is no set script for a therapy session, even between two clients experiencing the same issues and doing the same type of treatment. Your psychologist will adapt to your needs and use their style to guide the conversation. Some psychologists might take a slightly more relaxed approach and let you guide the conversation, while others will implement more structure. No approach is better or worse than the other, but merely different, and catered to each client’s different needs.

I have been working with Beth for almost 2 years. I have always found her to be kind, caring, compassionate, hardworking, and extremely knowledgeable. I always feel heard and understood by her which is important while working through emotional issues. She has helped me so much not only with myself, but also with my son. Her advice, guidance, and words of encouragement have gotten me through some very difficult times. She has gone above and beyond in order to help me and my son. I highly recommend Beth to anyone who wants and needs a therapist who will understand, teach, guide and support you.
