Hi

Seeing a psychiatrist is one option.

A PhD clinical psychologist is also possible.

Psychiatrists deal more with medications you might need.

Psychologists deal with teaching you psychotherapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has evidence of being as effective as medications in

some situations.

Let me know if you have more questions.
