I like having a therapist who is also a psychiatrist. It just works out better for me. I saw a psychologist for a while and didn't like the system he had going. I would see him for my therapy sessions, then he would send his recommendations to the overseeing psychiatrist, who might review it a week later or so, then he would write for my meds. Plus I would have to go back to the clinic in person to pick up my scrips from the psychiatrist, and he might talk to me for five minutes or so, and then I'd be billed for a visit with him, too. I interviewed several psychiatrists, and found one who I clicked with and had the credentials I wanted. He uses a mulit-faceted approach, designed to fit the patient. And he has been through extensive analysis himself, and continues to be on a regular basis. It's just a question of finding a person who is right for you and most importantly who is qualified to treat you.
