Q: There are so many different types of “therapists” out there. What kind of helping professional shall I choose?
A: It can be confusing to customers since there is sometimes overlap among helping professionals’ services. If you are in need of psychiatric medication or hospitalization, I advise you, without delay, to see a psychiatrist or else your family physician for diagnoses, treatment, or referrals. Go to your nearest emergency room in an emergency or call your county mental health crisis line. In some cases a psychologist may be able to help you. Psychologists typically assist with matters of the mind, thought, emotion, and the behaviors, disturbance, and unhappiness that result from deficits or disorders in these aspects of yourself. Social workers, as the term implies, assist with your relationships within your family, with your personal partner, with your connection to your peer group or with society in general. They may connect you with community resources or do psychotherapy as well. For a great definition of counseling, I recommend www.counseling.org and click on “What is Counseling?” A Health or Wellness Coach may help you manage chronic health conditions and improve your performance or sense of well-being. A Spiritual Counselor may assist you in soul work, connecting with a higher power, and practicing disciplined techniques to unification with spirit. Life and Career Coaches often work with people who are basically healthy, do not have a diagnosable disorder or are managing it well, and want someone to advise them and provide practical assistance to facilitate their achieving their goals and objectives.
