There are many things to consider when choosing a mental health professional. Do you visit a male or female therapist? What is the difference between a Clinical or Counseling Psychologist and a Psychiatrist? Both are doctors. The psychologist has a doctoral degree, Ph. D., Psy.D., or Ed.D., from a University or professional school with a specialization in Clinical or Counseling Psychology. Graduate work typically takes five or more years, and includes training in psychopathology and psychotherapy, personality theory, and psychological evaluation. As part of meeting the requirements for independent practice, psychologists complete a clinical internship and receive post-doctoral training under the supervision of a senior more experienced psychologist. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who choose to specialize in, and go on to complete additional training in mental health. Psychiatrists may or may not prescribe psychotropic drugs as a part of their therapeutic approach.Make an appointment
