What Is the Difference Between a Psychotherapist and a Psychiatrist?

Dr. Rachel Rohaidy

Psychiatrist Rachel Rohaidy and Psychotherapist Teresita Calero shared the difference between the tasks performed by a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist.

Dr. Rohaidy explains that a psychiatrist is someone who "has gone to medical school, done residency, has in-depth knowledge of pharmacology and neurobiology, and holds the degree of MD (Doctor of Medicine) or DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine)."

On the other hand, Calero points out that a psychotherapist, as herself, is a person who has a master's level clinician, with a license.

They say it is important to have an intermix between possible medication and therapy.
