What Is a Clinical Therapist?

A clinical therapist is a mental health professional who helps people with mental health issues. They typically have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in psychology or another mental health field. They must also have a license to practice and pass a state board exam.

Clinical therapists typically work with people with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and bipolar disorder. They may also work with people with physical health issues related to their mental health issues, such as chronic pain.

Clinical therapists typically work with a single patient at a time. They typically spend most of their time talking with the patient and trying to understand their problems. They may also provide advice and support to the patient.

Clinical therapists typically work with patients for around 60 to 90 sessions. After that, the therapist may provide the patient’s ongoing support or referral services.
