*If you're unclear about the difference between a psychotherapist (therapist) and a psychiatrist: start with a psychotherapist. Upon assessment, a therapist (you can use the terms psychotherapist and therapist interchangeably) will be able to advise you on whether or not medication could be useful, or necessary, for you. In VERY broad strokes, a psychotherapist is trained to practice healing talk therapy and a psychiatrist falls under the medical side of things and specializes in diagnosing and psychopharmacology (prescribing medication). These are VERY DIFFERENT approaches that can compliment one another when appropriate. It is my suggestion to start by seeing a therapist who will be able to assess whether you would benefit from seeing a psychiatrist.
