There are different types of psychotherapists from which to choose for therapy:

Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) - LCSWs have specialized knowledge of social resources, human capabilities, and the role that unconscious motivation plays in determining behavior. They work to help people to achieve more adequate, satisfying, and productive social adjustments.
Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) - A marriage and family therapist works with individuals, couples, or groups and examines interpersonal relationships for the purpose of achieving more adequate, satisfying, and productive marriage and family adjustments. 
Psychologist (PhD, PsyD, DMH, or LEP) -Psychologists provide assessment and treatment of a variety of interpersonal and mental health issues for individuals, families, and groups.
