Guest host Bridget Caletka LPC welcomes Dr. Noor Ferrell as the first psychiatrist on our show! After graduating from Emory University and completing her medical training at the Ohio University of Osteopathic Medicine and Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Ferrell opened her own practice where she sees a broad range of clients including those who are experiencing reproductive issues. After defining what a psychiatrist is and explaining why she chose the profession, Dr. Ferrell breaks down the differences between psychology and psychiatry as we debunk some major myths about the latter. We learn that therapy and medicine work well together when done properly, what medicines Dr. Ferrell commonly prescribes and how she goes about it, and why she’s always careful when prescribing meds because of possible side effects and dependency. Then, we turn our attention to the psychiatric evaluation process, the role that genetics play in psych assessments, the things that make it difficult to get an accurate diagnosis, and what our guest loves most about her job. For another inspirational conversation filled with hope, tune in now!
