A therapist is a mental health professional who has an advanced degree in psychology, psychiatry, social work, counseling, nursing, or other disciplines and who holds a current license to practice. Therapists are trained to diagnose and treat anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD using evidence-based treatments, such as CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy), DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), IPT (interpersonal psychotherapy), and other types of psychotherapy.
