What is the difference between Psychotherapist, a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist?

A psychiatrist is going to treat your symptoms through prescription medication. The Psychiatrists in our Therapist Network are highly skilled at diagnosis and determining the best medications for you.  Psychotherapists include Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Social Workers and Licensed Mental Health Counselors. They do not prescribe medication but will help you address the root causes of your symptoms and strengthen your coping skills. Depending on the issue, a combination of both psychotherapy and psychiatric treatment is sometimes an effective approach. Psychologists do not prescribe medication but also provide psychotherapy and often provide psychological testing and evaluations for specific disorders.
