          About therapy

          What kind of doctors treat mental health conditions?

          Psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and primary care physicians can all help get you the care you need. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental and emotional health. Psychiatrists are able to prescribe medication to treat mental health conditions. Psychologists, on the other hand, are professionals who offer a range of mental health services - particularly talk therapy. Suitable for young children and adults alike, psychologists use talk therapy and psychotherapy to get to the root of your mental health condition and enhance your wellness and well-being.Psychologists are not able to prescribe medications.

          What kinds of conditions do mental health experts treat?

          Doctors who specialize in psychiatry are trained to treat depression, anxiety, and a range of behavioral health and emotional concerns.

          Psychologists can treat these disorders, as well as provide counseling services. If you're looking for couples therapy, sex therapy, or stress management therapy, a psychologist could be the doctor for you.

          Connect with mental health professionals on Sesame who can assess your condition, manage your symptoms, and develop a treatment plan for you.

          What is a therapist?

          A therapist is a medical professional that uses psychotherapy (generally called talk therapy) to help relieve emotional distress and mental health issues of their patients. Many trained professionals fall under the broad umbrella of "therapist" including psychiatrists, social workers, mental health clinicians, life coaches, and licensed counselors. Therapists can treat a wide range of mental health disorders that include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and relationship problems. Therapists can also help you gain tools to better handle stress, or set and achieve major goals.

          What is a therapist for?

          Therapy is a great tool to help you track your emotions, reduce stress, work on goals like quitting smoking, guide you through major life decisions, hone skills like communication, or address problem areas in your life. Talk therapy has been widely received as an effective health care treatment for many different mental health conditions including:

          • Substance abuse

          • Eating disorders

          • Self-esteem issues

          • Relationship problems

          • Behavior issues

          What types of therapists are there?

          Therapists specialize in treating a wide range of conditions. Some of the most common therapy specializations include:

          Psychotherapists: Psychotherapists help people deal with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, and insomnia.

          Marriage and family therapists: Marriage and family therapists practice solution-based approaches to working through patterns of behavior within a family unit.

          Social workers: Licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) work in many different settings including schools, hospitals, human service agencies, private practices, and mental health clinics to help you cope with everyday problems.

          Licensed professional counselors (LPC): Licensed professional counselors hold a master’s degree in mental health services and provide treatment options for a wide variety of mental health issues within local communities including services for veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families.

          Licensed mental health counselors (LMHC): Also known as licensed professional counselors, LHMCs provide talk therapy to families, couples, and individuals.

          Couples therapists: Couples therapists provide counsel to couples seeking to improve their relationship and gain the tools needed to recognize and resolve conflicts.

          Marriage and family therapists: Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT) provide therapy to some or all members of a family unit to help with relationship issues. Family therapy is often short-term therapy with a finite amount of visits. Marriage counselors can also assist with couples looking to end their relationship affably.

          What is psychiatry?

          Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses on emotional and mental health, as well as behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists treat mental health conditions like anxiety, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, addiction and substance abuse, depression, autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and bipolar disorders.

          Psychiatrists are mental health professionals trained to diagnose and treat these disorders. They use tools like psychotherapy (talk therapy) to help relieve patients' emotional distress and address their mental health concerns. Psychiatrists can also help create treatment plans to help you handle stress or reach major milestones. When necessary, your psychiatrist may prescribe medication. All prescriptions are at the sole discretion of your doctor.

          Connect with a real, quality psychiatrist on Sesame who can assess your condition, manage your symptoms, and craft a treatment plan that works for you - all for one affordable, upfront price.

          What are common psychiatry subspecialties?

          While all psychiatrists can provide medical advice and care, there are a number of psychiatry subfields that address particular conditions, areas, or age groups. These include:

          Psychotherapy: During these sessions, also known as talk therapy, you speak with a psychotherapist or counselor to help reduce symptoms from depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions.

          Child and adolescent psychiatry: This is a specialized form of psychiatry that focuses on disorders related to childhood development.

          Geriatric psychiatry: The study of mental, emotional, and behavioral health as it relates to older adults.

          Forensic (legal) psychiatry: The assessment and treatment of mental disorders as they relate to the law.

          Addiction psychiatry: A form of psychiatry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders related to addiction.

          Psychopharmacology: The study of treating mental health disorders with the use of medication.

          What is the difference between counseling and therapy?

          Counseling psychology (or psychological counseling) is a form of mental health care provided as a general practice or as a specialty clinical health care service. Counseling helps patients deal with specific issues over a period of time. Examples of these types of instances include:

          Grief counseling: A patient may see a counseling psychologist who specializes in grief to help cope with the loss of a loved one.

          Career counseling: A patient may want to undergo career counseling to work through career goals, stress related to work, or depression about work.

          Couples counseling: Couples may seek couples therapy with a licensed professional counselor to talk about issues related to marriage, or improving communication in a relationship.

          There are a number of different types of counseling that can address individual needs and specific needs of a group. But most counseling sessions center around a specific issue or difficulty. Counseling may be a more short-term relationship, as opposed to long-term therapy.

          Psychotherapy (or therapy) is often a longer term mental health care service that addresses the well-being of the individual. In some cases, therapy and counseling are interchangeable, but some counselors work through specific needs while therapists help a patient with how they interact and relate to the world. Therapists may help with depression, anxiety, and underlying patterns of action, where a counselor will work on issues related to the topics above. These sessions often take place on a more long-term basis.

          Does Sesame work with insurance?

          In short, you do not need insurance to use Sesame. Sesame offers transparent upfront prices for patients without insurance.

          Sesame services are paid directly, separate from health insurance.

          If your insurance includes a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA), you can use your funds from these accounts to pay for care on Sesame. Some of these plans include a debit card you can use to pay up front, and others require you to submit your receipt after your purchase.

          If your insurance includes out-of-network coverage and/or a deductible, you may be able to submit your receipt from Sesame for reimbursement. Eligibility is determined by your insurance company and will vary depending on your plan. And you can always use your insurance to pay for medications picked up at your local pharmacy. Our team is here to help you - call us at 1 (877) 947-6411 with any questions.

          What is Sesame’s cancellation policy?

          We are unable to offer refunds for the following:

          1. No-shows or missed appointments
          2. Disagreement over the clinical outcome of the visit or not receiving a prescription

          How do I know if I'm booking with a quality therapist?

          Therapists on Sesame are reviewed by real users like you who give honest, straightforward feedback. Therapists, like every clinician on Sesame, undergo a rigorous vetting process, which guarantees that every visit you book is the best visit ever.

          Can I refill a prescription for antidepressants on Sesame?

          Don't expect your therapist to write you a prescription during your visit. That's what clinicians do. While therapists can't prescribe medication, Sesame's network of clinicians can refill simple things like antidepressants and other non-controlled substances over video. Keep in mind that refills are always at the discretion of the clinician.

          How does mental health treatment differ for men than women?

          Women are often likely to seek treatment for mental health conditions earlier than men - and are often more open to trying medication and different kinds of therapy.

          But ultimately, if you're struggling with depression, anxiety, or any other condition, you should talk to a therapist or doctor who can help.
