  • Is Dr. McNabb the right healthcare provider for me?
    Dr. McNabb is a medical physician (M.D.), meaning he went to medical school and completed residency training in psychiatry, which is mainly focused on treatment with medications and brain stimulation techniques (e.g., ECT, TMS), with additional training in psychotherapy. While Dr. McNabb uses a psychotherapeutic approach in his overall treatment, because the primary focus of this practice is medication management, if your main interest is in therapy, you will likely be better served by a psychologist (PhD or PsyD) or a master's-level therapist (e.g., MSW) whose specific focus is on psychotherapy (e.g., CBT, DBT, psychoanalysis, ACT, etc.)
  • What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist or therapist?
    The main difference lies in professional background and training: Psychiatrists are medical doctors (e.g., M.D. or D.O.) who have completed undergraduate and/or graduate degrees (bachelor's, master's) and then completed four years of medical school, followed by four years of psychiatry residency training. Psychiatrists receive clinical training in medication-based and brain stimulation (e.g., ECT, TMS) treatment of mental health conditions as well as psychotherapy approaches, though the majority focus on medications and brain stimulation. Psychologists have a PhD or PsyD degree, which generally takes 4-5 years to complete following undergraduate (bachelor's degree) coursework. Psychologists receive clinical training focused on psychotherapy (e.g., CBT, DBT, psychoanalysis, ACT, etc.) but do not prescribe medications or medical treatments. There are also master's-level therapists (generally with degrees in social work [MSW]) and certified training in providing therapy like psychologists.
