*If you're unclear about the difference between a psychotherapist (therapist) and a psychiatrist: start with a psychotherapist. Upon assessment, a therapist (you can use the terms psychotherapist and therapist interchangeably) will be able to advise you on whether or not medication could be useful, or necessary, for you. In VERY broad strokes, a psychotherapist is trained to practice healing talk therapy and a psychiatrist falls under the medical side of things and specializes in diagnosing and psychopharmacology (prescribing medication). These are VERY DIFFERENT approaches that can compliment one another when appropriate. It is my suggestion to start by seeing a therapist who will be able to assess whether you would benefit from seeing a psychiatrist. (If you are in crisis, don't waste a second worrying about the difference and GO GET HELP. If you are in crisis, find a walk-in clinic and/or you are always welcome to get yourself, or a loved one who is in danger, over to your local emergency room.)
   
All of the information above is offered as starter resources for you to seek out your own treatment. I, Maranda, cannot be held responsible for the therapists and/or treatment received as a result of these resources. If seeking individualized treatment (like a therapist or psychiatrist), it is recommended you speak with 2-3 professionals so you can find the right fit for you on your personal journey. Don't be afraid to ask questions and always use your best judgement! Please take good care of yourself and remember we all need a little help sometimes! XO, Maranda
