What Is A Psychologist?

Psychologist Services

Sometimes there is confusion about what a psychologist is and what kind of conditions we treat. Dr. Taji Huang PhD can help clear up those questions and provide support for better mental health in Glendale, CA. Find out the roles a psychologist plays and the conditions we typically treat.

Psychologist vs. Psychiatrist

Psychologists attend school for approximately 8-10 years to earn a Ph.D. Therapy with a psychologist primarily involves talk therapy and behavior modification. They may employ several different treatment modalities, but they do not prescribe medication and they are not medical doctors.

A psychiatrist has a medical degree and their areas of study include anatomy and pharmacology. They treat more intense conditions, like schizophrenia. They typically run a series of medical tests and include medication as part of the treatment plan in addition to psychotherapy.
