In this bowl many talk about therapists. I want to see someone but not sure if that is a psychiatrist, psychologist or counselor? Any advice?

I was given a direct contact to someone who’s a certified social worker and works in HR. She helped me find a therapist that I’m going to visit this coming week, and recommended a psychiatrist. Depending on the severity of what you’re going through, I think it’s best to start with a therapist. I actually first brought up my depression to my primary care doctor and she prescribed me some anti-depressants that have really changed me for the better. But now I’m seeking some additional help because while my mental health is better overall, the work is just dragging me back down


Thank you.

I have a counselor and a psychiatrist. My psychiatrist is just for meds and my counselor is for getting me to a point where hopefully I can get off meds (not that there is anything wrong with being on medication). Depending on severity - your primary care can prescribe you medicine, but psychiatrist is much more specialized.


You’re welcome! I know it’s a lot, but getting help has been 100% worth it for me! You can do it!


I have started with a therapist/counselor, while some of my issues can get severe, for me personally, I wanted to start with someone just to lay it all out there and to find the cause/effect and see if I can find ways to cope without meds first.

I feel like a struggle with “Black and White” thinking where if someone does something that makes me really upset, they became ‘bad’ in my eyes for a while. I.e at work, if we are in a super stressful situation and a coworker is upset or has a annoyed tone with me, I’ll automatically be avoiding or kinda worried to be around that coworker for a while/can’t focus around them properly until they show a diff mood. I also do this in my personal life. Anyone with similar experience/ways to help?

I tried to get on anti-depressants in college. The doctor at student health said I wasn’t depressed enough, too high functioning, well-adjusted, etc. I didn’t want to argue, I was afraid of coming off as “drug seeking”. It’s been a few years and it’s gotten worse. I don’t enjoy the things I used to love, I don’t want to do anything other than sleep, I’m struggling with an eating disorder, work feels like torture. I’m terrified of going back to a doctor and either hearing the same thing or having it go the other way and get put in some kind of in-patient program. How do you do this?
