Mental health care that cares
Frequently asked questions
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions through medication management and supportive therapy. Think of a psychiatrist as a doctor for your mind. If you’re struggling with your mental health and aren’t sure where to start, a psychiatrist can help.
Take our 10-minute assessment to see if Talkiatry is right for you and get matched with a psychiatrist in
who meets your needs.
You may not need to choose between a psychologist and a psychiatrist—although there are differences in the types of treatment and expertise mental health professionals can provide, they often collaborate on your care.
That said, here’s a quick guide to help you decide if a psychologist or psychiatrist is the best starting place.
See a psychiatrist if:
- You’re experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition that are making it hard to go about your day-to-day life.
- You’re experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition and/or have a family history of mental health issues.
- You’re interested in exploring psychiatric medications, such as antidepressants, for mental health treatment.
See a psychologist if:
- You’re looking for a psychotherapy outlet to help address behavioral or emotional challenges.
- The concern you’re hoping to address is specific to relationship challenges, stress, grieving, or a life transition.
Not sure if your symptoms are severe enough to warrant medication? We always recommend consulting with a psychiatrist first to discuss your options. Also, keep in mind that if you’re looking for virtual care, you need to be sure your doctor or psychologist is registered to practice in
(or for non-
residents, the state where you live).
The term “therapist” can apply to a range of professionals including social workers, mental health counselors,psychologists, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychoanalysts. Working with a therapist generally involves regular talk therapy sessions where you discuss your feelings, problem-solving strategies,and coping mechanisms to help with your condition.
Psychiatrists are doctors who have specialized training in diagnosing and treating complex mental health conditions through medication management. If you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or similar, a psychiatrist may be a good place to start. Other signs that you should see a psychiatrist include:
- Your primary care doctor or another doctor thinks you may benefit from the services of a psychiatrist and provides a referral
- You are interested in taking medication to treat a mental health condition
- Your symptoms are severe enough to regularly interfere with your everyday life
While both therapy and psychiatry are both available online, you'll still need to be sure that the therapist or clinician is licensed to practice in
(or for non-
residents, the state where you live).
It’s ok to be a little nervous about your first visit with your psychiatrist. But remember, they’re there to help you feel better.Psychiatrists have years of experience working with new patients and will help you feel comfortable during your sessions.
Here’s what to expect in your first visit at Talkiatry:
Evaluation: During your first visit with a Talkiatry psychiatrist, you’ll get to meet each other and answer questions about your current symptoms, personal history,medical history, and mental health goals.
Diagnosis: Based on the information you’ve shared, your psychiatrist will be able to provide a diagnosis of your condition, if you have one. Getting a diagnosis can feel scary, but it can also feel validating to finally put a name to what you've been experiencing. Your psychiatrist will help you navigate any emotions that come up and work with you on a path to move forward.
Treatment plan: You’ll collaborate with your psychiatrist on the best way to manage your symptoms. If medication is appropriate, you’ll discuss your options, including the benefits and potential side effects of each medication. Your psychiatrist will provide supportive therapy throughout your session and may also recommend working with one of our therapists. Our therapists partner with our psychiatrists in a collaborative model to provide holistic care.

Also note that prescribing laws can vary from state to state. During yourfirst visit, your doctor will be able to talk you through how it works in
(or for non-

The main factor that determines the cost of your visit is your insurance coverage. The majority of our patients pay $25 or less per visit.* If you have a deductible plan and haven’t met your deductible yet, the average cost is between $325 and $414. The best way to get an estimate of your total cost is to contact your insurance company and ask about their coverage for outpatient psychiatric services.
*Includes all types of patient costs: copayment, deductible, and coinsurance. Excludes no-shows and includes $0 payments.
Medication and talk therapy (also called psychotherapy) are the gold standard for treating mental health conditions but treatment is highly personalized. A treatment that works for you may not work for someone else. Luckily, psychiatrists are experts in treating mental health conditions and can guide you through different treatment options and help you find one that’s right for you.
At Talkiatry, we make it easy to find a psychiatrist in
who matches your needs. Take our 10-minute online assessment to see if Talkiatry is right for you.
Our goal is to help you find the best treatment option for your needs and there may be some cases where virtual care isn't the right fit. If this is the case, your psychiatrist will be able to recommend other treatment options within your first visit. Our 10-minute online assessment will also help you determine whether or not Talkiatry is the right fit for your care.
What we can’t treat: Schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders: This is a complex condition that responds best to treatments that aren’t safe to provide in an online-only setting. Since we’re a virtual practice, we aren’t able to treat patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders.
Certain personality disorders, like borderline personality disorder: Generally,borderline personality disorder doesn’t respond well to medication. As a psychiatry practice, one of our main focuses is medication management. One of the most effective treatments for borderline personality disorder is dialectical behavioral therapy, which is something our clinicians aren’t specialized in.
Patients who have been hospitalized or required to stay overnight in a clinic or in-patient setting for a mental health condition in the last 6 months: Our goal is to provide safe, effective care. For patients who have been required to stay overnight for a condition, a virtual practice can’t provide the right level of care.
Patients looking for therapy only: Our psychiatrists specialize in medication management. While we do have some therapists on staff to support patients who’d benefit from both medication and dedicated therapy, we don’t treat patients looking for talk therapy only.
