Therapist FAQs

What is a therapist?

Therapists are mental health professionals trained to help you manage and care for your emotional and behavioral well-being. Therapy is an effective tool to help manage and treat addiction, anxiety and stress, low self-esteem, depression, grief and loss, trauma, and relationship issues. Therapy can help you improve your communication skills, help you feel empowered, teach you how to make healthier choices, and develop coping strategies for managing distress. Therapists can be an umbrella term for various mental health providers such as psychologists, licensed social workers, counselors, and marriage and family therapists. Therapists often have master’s degrees and are licensed to practice in their state. When finding a therapist, you can ask someone you trust, use a reliable database from an organization you trust (like the American Psychological Association or American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists), or try an online therapy app. Ultimately, finding a therapist who’s a good fit can make a big difference in achieving your goals.
