Is a Psychologist a Doctor?
Psychology is the study of the human mind and behavior. Psychologists hold doctoral degrees in psychology, such as clinical or counseling psychology; they are not medical doctors. One main difference between psychiatrists, who are medical doctors, and psychologists, who hold doctoral degrees, is that psychologists are trained to look at the behavior behind a psychological condition. In contrast, a psychiatrist is trained to look at the biology of the condition. But the primary distinction is the ability to prescribe medications; a psychologist cannot.
A psychologist’s work involves observing and interpreting how individuals relate to each other, their environment, and themselves. They are trained in diagnosing mental health disorders and helping clients learn and adopt new and healthy coping mechanisms through psychotherapy or talk therapy. They can facilitate individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy programs.

How Individual Therapy Can Help
A cornerstone of effective mental health treatment and recovery programs, individual therapy is part of all of our programs at Harmony Hills. Working with your counselor, you will uncover the challenges that may impede your recovery. Over several sessions, your therapist will gather information about you, your living situation, your family, social interactions and relationships, and many other aspects of your everyday life.
You will work together to establish your treatment goals. Your therapist will work with our interdisciplinary team to incorporate all of your needs into a comprehensive recovery and treatment plan.
Clients report many benefits from individual therapy, including improved interpersonal relationships and communication skills, being able to control moods and emotions more effectively, the ability to recognize triggers and other negative habits, being able to cope with anger, stress, and other negative emotions, and replacing adverse habits with healthier coping mechanisms.
