Mental Health Professionals
When choosing a mental health provider, it is important to know the difference in the different types of providers. Psychologists (PhD or PsyD) have a bachelors, masters and a doctorate degree in psychology. Psychologists may or may not be licensed. Psychiatrists are medical doctors (MD) with specialization in psychology. They usually do not provide therapy, but focus on medication needs. Mental Health Counselors (MA or MS) are therapists with a masters degree in psychology or counseling. If they choose to be licensed, they are Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC). Social Workers (MSW) are therapists with a masters degree in social work. Those social workers that are licensed are Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) and those who have had additional supervision may also have credentialing (ACSW).
The Therapeutic Relationship
The most important aspect of seeking a mental health provider is the development of the therapeutic relationship between the client and the mental health provider. This relationship is one of trust and commitment from both parties. Do not be afraid to “interview” your mental health provider to determine if you are a good match.
Terry uses a collaborative approach when providing services to clients. She practices Solution-Focused therapy, Strengths Perspective, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and she believes all therapy should be client-centered and client directed. Treatment options are discussed during the first session and together the direction of the treatment is developed. The client is encouraged to ask questions and research any suggested treatments. Terry is happy to assist with providing any available information that might assist with this collaborative approach. brazilian virgin hair uk
