What is the difference between a psychologist and a counselor?
While looking for the right mental health professional, you may have questions about the differences between a psychologist and a counselor. Licensed counselors require a college degree (BS or BA) and require additional training to work with individuals on overall well-being. This treatment can be done in a group or a private environment and supports good mental health. On the other hand, almost all licensed psychologists have a Doctoral degree (PhD) or equivalent supplemental training. Psychologists work with individuals to diagnose disorders and help patients learn coping skills to alleviate symptoms of their mental health problems.
