Psychologist Vs. Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (NP): What’s the Difference? 

If you’re new to mental health terminology, you may be confused about the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatric NP. The most important thing to know for therapy is that a psychiatric NP is a medical and mental health professional who can prescribe medication, and a psychologist can’t.

Thriveworks in Little Elm, TX recruits the top select few applicants so that our clients get the best mental health providers in their field. In addition to psychologists and psychiatric NPs, these mental health professionals may include: 

  • Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), who provide therapy/counseling services and support for local social services.
  • Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), who provide couples counseling and family therapy.
  • Licensed professional counselors (LPCs), who provide solution-based counseling, usually for specific issues.
