How is Psychiatry Different from Therapy?

Because our staff psychiatrists are trained medical doctors, they can prescribe medications and help clients with medication management. Some staff psychiatrists also provide psychotherapy as do our staff therapists. If you are seeking therapy, you may not need to see a psychiatrist. If you are unsure of whether you are looking for a therapist or psychiatrist, you can always talk to a member of our Client Care Team by calling (215)382-6680 ext 1.

Some clients taking psychiatric medication or seeking evaluation for psychiatric medication choose to see a psychiatrist for both medication and therapy. Others choose to see a therapist for talk therapy and a staff psychiatrist for medication management.

If you’ve been referred to a psychiatrist by your current therapist or health care provider, you may view a list of our staff psychiatrists here.
