A 41-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

I'm seeing a therapist who holds a Ed.D. It's not a PhD in psych but is he still qualified to offer therapy and diagnosis? He works under a PhD.

Yes, he is!: Especially w/ the availability of consult/supervision by the PhD. Each locale licenses differently and if you wish, you can ask about it. They should not be defensive. They should be glad you're careful. That you work well together is the big issue! EdD's have a lot of training and if he's got the right experience, that's fine!
