medical doctors or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Talkspace Users
or a certified expert nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of individuals who can prescribe medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication because they do not hold those other degrees and where i live extremely very few psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on recommending the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the second criticism that they don’t deal with court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i really tried to avoid handling court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would occur is i would get a call from somebody who would be in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week due to the fact that they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had received most likely 5 or six months ago now i understand that this occurs i really do but that’s not in fact treatment that’s in fact doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for the majority of court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood firms that can supply that kind of therapy in a more effective way so i simply wished to resolve those two criticisms because i don’t feel they’re valid so prior to i share with you this little trick on the site for better help in regards to being able to discover someone in your own location that you resonate with i wish to state 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very essential and the style of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has a very expensive rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who’ve concerned me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d state my previous therapist not did anything however speak about herself well that’s not appropriate so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a community company or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you need to find someone who’s an excellent fit for you and in fact among the
