Psychologist recommendation

An_251405 posted:
I am trying to find a psychologist in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona to help my husband who is suffering from depression.

My husband is barely able to work, and he is drinking far too much. He stopped exercising and doing the things he loves.

He finally agreed to get help, but I am having a hard time finding a psychologist for him.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

While we are not allowed to give out specific Dr. names, my suggestion would be to find a board certified Psychiatrist - not a psychologist.

A psychiatrist is a medical Dr. who can prescribe medication and do a full-evaluation on your husband, then recommend what type of treatment would be the most helpful.

I googled, "how to find a board certified psychiatrist in Arizona", and got responses like this one:
http://psychiatrists.psychologytoday.com/rms/cities/AZ-Arizona-Psychiatrists.html

Once you have a list of qualified Dr.'s, then go thru your insurance company, and find out which psysicians take your insurance.

Hope this helps! Take care, and good luck to you both,
-Kathleen
