Would a Gender Therapist Be Called a Psychologist?

Question by Guppy: Would a gender therapist be called a psychologist?
There’s this therapist I’ve been looking into and she seems okay but she’s a “clinical psychologist”, not a therapist. Is that bad? Should I try looking somewhere else?

Best answer:

Answer by Clones Don’t Have 200k Pts
Yes, that’s fine. A gender therapist may be a psychologist (PhD), a licensed clinical social worker or a psychiatrist.

Whoever you see be sure they have experience with gender issues. You might ask:

Have you helped other people transition?

How many?

Do you have an endocrinologist you refer patients to?

Are you familiar with the Benjamin Standards of Care?

Question by courtney: What is the difference between clinical psychology and counseling? You can get a PhD in both?
I am interested in getting my Masters Degree. I see that some online and campus universities have both of these degrees. And then you can further your education and get a PhD. Some websites even say clinical psychology/counseling, like it is the same thing.

Answer by wisener
Psychology is the science of the study of the mind and how it influences thinking and behaviors. Counseling and clinical psychology are the most popular areas of study in the field of psychology.

Clinical psychologists work with more seriously ill mental health patients. Psychologist Raymond LLoyd Richmond, Ph.D., describes the history of the word clinical: “The word, clinic derives from the Latin clinicus, or a physician who attends patients sick in bed. Clinical psychology is concerned with the work of treating ‘sick’ patients.”

What Is the Difference Between an LPC and a Counseling Psychologists?

Question by dilila_may: What is the difference between an LPC and a counseling Psychologists?
What can one do that the other cannot. This is very confusing, to me.

Best answer:

Answer by michele
As far as actual practice, there is no difference in what LPCs and licensed psychologists are legally permitted to do. Both can conduct psychotherapy or counseling. Both (if properly trained) can administer, score, and interpret a variety of psychological tests. Both can assess, diagnose, and treat mental illness. Both can provide services which are reimbursable via managed care.

In some states,LPCs may not use any form of the word “psychology’ (including the word “psychotherapy”) in the description of the services they provide.In practice, though, “counseling” and “psychotherapy” are virtually indistinguishable. Licensed psychologists, on the other hand, can use the word “psychology” (in any form) in the description/advertisement of the services they provide.
