Can a psychotherapist prescribe medications?

Can I see the same therapist every time?
Yes, in order to select the same psychotherapist, you’ll need to book an appointment and select the same psychotherapist each time.
What is the difference between a psychiatrist, psychologist, and psychotherapist?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental health and psychiatric disorders. They undergo additional training and licensing so that they’re able to diagnose and treat mental illness. Psychiatrists focus on the physical causes of mental illness, as well as the mental health aspects, and can prescribe medications.
Psychologists and psychotherapists, however, are not medical doctors. Psychologists often focus on cognitive behaviour therapy and other behavioural strategies, while psychotherapists often focus on talk therapy. Psychologists and psychotherapists cannot prescribe medications.
