There are many kinds of people who have been trained to give therapy and help you. These include:

  1. Psychiatrists (they write MD after their name)

  2. Psychologists (they write PhD, PsyD, EdD, or MS after their name)

  3. Social workers (they write DSW, MSW, LCSW, LICSW, or CCSW after their name)

  4. Counselors (they write MA, MS, LMFT, or LCPC after their name)

  5. Psychiatric nurses (they write APRN or PMHN after their name)

More important than their training, you should find someone you can talk with honestly and openly. Your therapist won’t have all the answers, but the key is to find someone you can work with as a partner to help you find answers.
