Therapists, Counselors, and Psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Woodridge, IL

The psychologist Albert Ellis once stated, “The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” This moment that Ellis describes might also be the moment someone decides to go to therapy. 

Professional mental health services don’t just help people suffering from acute mental health conditions, behavioral issues, or crises in their personal lives. Mental health services can benefit anyone. For example, individual counseling might help a person discover that they want to change careers and give them the self-esteem boost they need to take the plunge. Couples counseling might give a newly married couple the tools they need to communicate better so they can model a healthier relationship for their future children. And of course, therapists can help people who grapple with depression, anxiety, and other common conditions that can sometimes interfere with daily functioning if not addressed.

The mental health counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Woodridge have experience treating all kinds of people with all kinds of psychological needs. Counseling services at Thriveworks are private, secure, and compassionate. It’s mental health care that can help anyone and everyone achieve their goals in life.  

Are Therapy and Counseling the Same Thing?

Therapy and counseling are words that are often used interchangeably, but they’re not exactly the same. At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Woodridge, counselors tend to zero in on specific issues and problems. They tend to be more solution focused and treatment might operate on a shorter time scale. Psychotherapists, on the other hand, tend to use talk therapy techniques to delve further into the origins of present-day problems. A psychotherapist is anyone licensed to provide psychotherapy. 

At Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Woodridge, clients might also encounter these additional mental health providers: 

  • Psychologists (PsyDs or PhDs), who can be counseling psychologists or clinical psychologists. They use a variety of psychotherapy approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help clients address their mental and behavioral health needs.
  • Psychiatrists (MDs), who are medical doctors who can prescribe medications like antidepressants. They also have psychotherapy training. 
  • Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), who work with intimate partners and families to improve their interpersonal relationships.
  • Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), who provide counseling and professional guidance for social services.

Should I Talk with a Psychiatrist? 

Talking to a psychiatrist is most likely an independent decision that you’ll need to make on your own. However, anyone can benefit from talking with a mental health professional, including a psychiatrist. If you’re not familiar with what a psychiatrist is, they’re unique in that they: 

  • Are medical doctors, in addition to often being licensed mental health professionals
  • Can prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the harmful symptoms of mental health conditions 
  • Often the preferred treatment method for emotional or behavioral conditions such as major depression or ADHD

Not everyone who talks with a psychiatrist will be prescribed medication; your treatment will depend on your own preferences and needs. By talking openly about what’s bothering you, you can help to provide your Thriveworks psychiatrist with the information they need to help you manage your mental health challenges. 

 You may also consider our psychiatric services if you’re suffering from the symptoms of: 

  • ADHD 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • And many other mental health conditions
