Psychologist: A Master’s-level mental health professional, generally certified either to do therapy or psychological research. Psychologists are different from psychiatrists in that they are not MD’s and thus cannot prescribe medicine. Psychotherapists and psychologists can overlap but don’t have to—others qualified to perform psychotherapy include social workers and licensed counselors.
