What do psychologists do?
Practicing psychologists use an assortment of evidence-based
treatments to help people improve their lives. Most commonly, they use
therapy (often referred to as psychotherapy or talk therapy). There are
many different styles of therapy, but the psychologist will choose the
type that best addresses the person’s problem and best fits the
patient’s characteristics and preferences.
Some common types of therapy are cognitive, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, humanistic, psycho-dynamic or a combination of a few therapy styles. Therapy can be for an individual, couples, family or other group. Some psychologists are trained to use hypnosis, which research has found to be effective for a wide range of conditions including pain, anxiety and mood disorders.
For some conditions, therapy and medication are a treatment combination that works best. For people who benefit from medication, psychologists work with primary care physicians, pediatricians and psychiatrists on their overall treatment. Two states, New Mexico and Louisiana, have laws allowing licensed psychologists with additional, specialized training to prescribe from a list of medications that improve emotional and mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety.
Dr. Giessler accepts most insurances, workers compensation, and auto accident insurances.
