Pondworks Psychiatry Therapists
Should you see a psychologist or a psychiatrist? They’re not interchangeable, especially when it comes to choosing an Austin Therapy provider. A psychologist earns a PhD. which enables him or her to perform psychological testing and assessments, conduct research, teach at a university level, as well as offer talk therapy.
Psychiatry training is unique in that it emcompasses both medication management and talk therapy. In fact, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are the only providers who have the training to perform both roles. If a practice does not include the word “psychiatry” in its list of services, its therapists do not have the expertise to prescribe medicine or determine whether an emotional issue may be health-related, or if a new health condition is exacerbating emotional and behavioral issues.
