Psychotherapists

Who are psychotherapists?

Psychotherapists are licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, board certified psychiatrists, and licensed mental health counselors who can legally practice psychotherapy. They are qualified to work on all general human issues, such as deep, childhood, and core issues, and any specific areas for which they are trained. This is said to be in their “scope of practice.” Understanding the different certifications, licenses, and other credentials is not necessary to begin recovery, but interview the person you’re considering taking on as your psychotherapist about their background, approaches, and experience to confirm they are a right match for you.
