I didn't realize we had so many choices. I usually just take what I get. I have a psychiatrist and a psychologist too. I see my psychologist often and the psychiatrist keeps track of me through her. He prescribes my meds, though she can prescribe some of them. I would start out with any counselor that you can get. Do you have insurance? But then I would go from there, let them access your information and they can decide if you need to see a psychiatrist or not. OFten your pcp can prescribe medications, but it is nice to have a psychiatrist if you can afford one.
Actually you are getting depression early in life. Some people don't get it until they are in their 20's and 30's or even later. But the sooner you address it the better. I would try and find a counselor soon to see if you need therapy and medication.
I hope that you have a good day today. Keep posting and know that we understand and that we care...
