First of all, most psychiatrists these days don't do therapy at all. They leave that to the psychologists -- and I'll say no more about that.

Psychiatrists these days mostly just do medications, and some are certainly better than others. Unfortunately, it's mostly hit or miss.

Psychologists, and other counselors and therapists, also have a huge spectrum of talent. There are also a huge number of different types of therapy -- short term, longer term, psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, etc. Within each type of therapy, with each type of practitioner, you'll find a very wide range of abilities. (Kinda like any other career path, you know?)

I've seen great therapists, lousy therapists, and in between therapists. Ditto psychiatrists. That's why, when you find a good one, it's so good -- FINALLY, someone I can work on these things with...

I hope that helps answer your question.
