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 Towson, MD 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 Towson 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.

What Exactly Does a Psychologist Do?  

Psychologists are trained professionals who have gone through extensive schooling and training to gain the tools and skills necessary to treat all aspects of mental health. Your Thriveworks Towson Counseling psychologist will consider all of your preferences, goals, and needs when creating a plan of treatment that is specific to you.

  1. How can my psychologist help me figure out what is going on in my life? Whether you think you might be dealing with depression or you have feelings of worry every time you go down a certain street, your psychologist can help you find the root cause of the problems you are facing. They can perform personality tests, diagnose mental illnesses, create treatment plans, and provide support to their clients during and after counseling.
  2. Will my psychologist put me on medication? In instances where a client may benefit from taking a prescription medication, your psychologist will work with your primary care physician or a psychiatrist to carefully find a treatment plan that works best for you. In some instances, medication is a great option for clients and your mental health provider will help you decide which route to take.
  3. How can my Thriveworks Towson psychologist help me feel more confident and supported? Because Thriveworks Towson is client-focused, we will do everything we can to make you feel safe, confident, and supported. You can learn different tools and techniques to take with you outside of the office that can help you tackle any future problems that arise. In addition, your psychologist will be the rock you need throughout your mental health journey and can guide you to a place of happiness and success.
  4. What is one of the best things I can take away from therapy and counseling? One of the most empowering things we can help you with is healing. Without the ability to heal, you can feel stuck and lost without letting past trauma drift away. You need to start living your life free of past grievances in order to feel free and happy.

We understand it can be a hard decision to start going to therapy. Just know that you are strong and capable of making change.
