medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Talkspace Subscription
or a certified professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of people who can prescribe medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they do not hold those other degrees and where i live very extremely few psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the second criticism that they don’t deal with court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i truly attempted to avoid dealing with court orders and i will share with you why most of the time what would happen is i would get a call from somebody who would be in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week because they had to go to court next week and they were trying to meet the requirement that they had actually gotten most likely five or six months ago now i understand that this happens i really do but that’s not really treatment that’s really doing something to please a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and probably for most court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood companies that can offer that kind of therapy in a more effective way so i simply wanted to resolve those 2 criticisms because i do not feel they’re valid so prior to i share with you this little trick on the site for better help in terms of being able to discover someone in your own location that you resonate with i ‘d like to state two things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is super crucial and the design of a therapist makes a big difference how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has a very costly rate at a private practice and still not more than happy with the therapist right i’ve had clients who have actually pertained to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my office and they ‘d state my prior therapist did nothing however speak about herself well that’s not proper so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a community firm or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so absolutely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you have to find someone who’s a great suitable for you and in fact one of the
