Psychiatry Q&A

What is the difference between psychiatry and psychology?

Psychiatry and psychology differ in training and treatments. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who diagnoses, treats, and prevents mental health conditions. They can also prescribe medications, provide psychotherapy, and manage the emotional and physical aspects of a mental health condition.

A psychologist has a doctorate degree and provides psychotherapy and behavioral therapy for mental health conditions. Most psychologists don’t prescribe medications. 

Thrive Counseling Services, LLC is a full-service therapy practice that takes a holistic approach to mental health. Their team includes psychiatrists and therapists, providing all the mental health services you need at one practice.
