The difference between a psychologist and a counselor: Who can diagnose you?
from Yahoo! Lifestyle
The difference between a psychologist vs a counselor is that a psychologist can diagnose mental illnesses, while a counselor can treat them. If you're looking to find out what mental illness you have, it's best to go to a licensed psychologist who has been to graduate school and has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology or something in the psychological field. A counselor, on the other hand, is someone you can see for therapy.
