A psychiatrist is a medical doctor and has more schooling. They listen at your first appt. and then prescribe meds to go along with the therapy a social worker, psychologist, or counselor does. The pay is good for both, but you will make more as a psychiatrist. If you are looking to utilize your skills as a counselor then you should go into counseling. You could become a psychiatrist that counsels and prescribes, I do not know if that exists. I know a child psychiatrist that does this. Good luck.
