Medications and Therapy

Medication and Therapy78369371_woman_leaning_web.jpg (Medium 450px )

Some psychiatrists provide psychotherapy as well as medication management. A psychiatrist typically has an M.D. or D.O. and has been trained primarily in medications and the physical components of behavioral health. Some have also been trained in psychotherapy, but this is less common than it used to be in the past. Psychiatrists and psychotherapists often work in conjunction with the client, having an occassional check-up with the psychiatrist while ongoing work with the psychotherapist happens more regularly.

While medications are not a one step solution, they can sometimes be used successfully together with a long term therapy plan to achieve the goals set out by you and your therapist.
