Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between psychiatry and therapy?
Psychiatry is a practice facilitated by a trained doctor, an MD or DO, dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating mental illnesses. Psychiatrists are trained to differentiate mental illnesses from other physical ailments that present psychiatric symptoms. The primary difference between therapy and psychiatry is that psychiatry employs medication along with other therapies to treat specific mental illnesses. Therapy, on the other hand, is an umbrella term for all types of treatments that deal with mental health. The most familiar form of therapy is CBT which involves working with a licensed mental health worker to understand how a patient thinks and interacts with the world around them. This is accomplished through counseling sessions and other techniques that promote personal understanding and awareness.
Can a provider speak with a client on the phone first? Before an official appointment is scheduled.
Unfortunately, for insurance purposes, initial evaluations must be done in person. You can easily book an appointment here with just your name, phone number, and email.
I’m not depressed, I’ve just been under a lot of stress these past few weeks. Do I need therapy?
Seeking therapy is completely up to the individual. It may strongly benefit someone to simply talk about their problems with a trained professional who will guide than through answering hard questions. Ultimately, the goal of therapy is to increase self-awareness and help patients work towards positive life changes.
