What is the difference between a psychologist and psychiatrist?

Both psychologists and psychiatrists are doctors who specialize in mental health care.  Both are entitled to diagnose and treat mental health within the health care system.  Psychologists have a Ph.D. and specialize in assessment and talk therapies. Psychiatrists have an M.D. and specialize in assessment and medication therapies. These specialists often work together within systems in search of the best outcome for individuals in care.

Services Offered


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug use, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a structured therapy that encourages the client to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements).


Mindfulness Based Approaches

Acceptance and Mindfulness based interventions are research supported to promote behavior change and psychological flexibility. This may be especially useful in situations that involve unchangeable realities in our life such as illness or loss

Therapeutic Influences 


Client Centered Therapy

Carl Rogers developed a therapy characterized by genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy as both the therapist and the client mutually seek answers to help the client understand their own experience.



Victor Frankle developed Logotherapy based on the belief that the search for meaning, even in the midst of suffering, can constitute a potential solution to human suffering. It suggests that it is not just the “what” we do that matters, but also the “why”.
