Who Can Provide Psychotherapy?

Adapted from information found on About.com.

Providers of psychotherapy and other mental health services may hold a number of titles, credentials, or licensures. Job titles such as “psychologist” and “psychiatrist” require the individual to meet specific state and national requirements. However, there are no governing bodies to regulate titles such as “psychotherapist” and “therapist,” so anyone could claim these designations.
If you are seeking a therapist for treatment, it is important to understand the credentials, licensing requirements, and certifications of therapy providers.

Social Workers, LCSW:

When choosing a mental health professional, education and experience are important, but so are the therapist’s style and personality. Just because someone went to the “best” schools does not necessarily mean that he/she will be a good therapist. You are strongly encouraged to speak to multiple mental health providers over the phone (some even schedule free 15-minute sessions) prior to making a decision about the “best fit” for you and your needs.
