Psychologist FAQs

What is a psychologist?

Psychologists are mental health professionals who hold a doctoral degree, such as PhD, PsyD, or EdD. Psychologists specialize in the science of behaviors, emotions, and thoughts. Most clinical psychologists are board-certified through the American Board of Clinical Psychology. In most states, psychologists cannot prescribe medications. Instead, they use talk therapies to help manage mental health conditions. Like other mental health professionals, psychologists can diagnose and treat anxiety and stress, depression, the impact of chronic conditions on your mental health, self-esteem concerns, trauma and PTSD, and more. You can find a psychologist by seeking recommendations from someone you trust, browsing reliable online databases like the American Psychological Association, or trying an online therapy app. If you don’t have insurance, you can find affordable mental healthcare by contacting a local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) representative. Ultimately, finding a psychologist who’s a good fit can make a big difference in achieving your goals.
