Thanks for bringing your question to JustAnswer.

 

These days, most psychiatrists focus more on medication than on doing therapy. Most people talk out their problems with a therapist, and see a psychiatrist for meds.

 

Rates for psychiatrists vary by location, but plan on spending at least 200 for an appointment (more in places like California or NY)

 

Therapists, in general, charge anywhere from 65-150 a session. Some have sliding scale fees, based on the client's income. (Again, fees are higher in CA, NY)

 

One of the best online directories for finding either a psychiatrist or a therapist is the one on the Psychology Today website. You'll be able to read about each person's approach to how the help people and figure out the one best suited to address your particular concerns. http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/
