Finding the Right Therapist for You

  • Research: Utilize online directories, therapist-finding websites, and recommendations from friends or professionals.

  • Therapist Specializations: Look for therapists who specialize in the areas you wish to address, such as trauma, anxiety, or relationship issues.

  • Education and Experience: Ensure the therapist is trained and experienced in their field to provide effective guidance.

  • Approach and Style: Research different therapeutic approaches (e.g. Emotion-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy) to find one that resonates with you.

  • Connection: Schedule initial consultations with potential therapists to gauge how comfortable and connected you feel.

  • Cost and Insurance: Consider your budget and inquire about your insurance about their coverage for within-network and out-of-network mental health services (see our Page for more detailed information).

  • Cultural Sensitivity: Choose a therapist who respects and understands your cultural background and your unique experiences in your identities, as this can impact your therapy experience.


Taking the First Step

  • Schedule an Initial Session: Reach out to the therapist you believe is the best fit and schedule an introductory session.

  • Be Open and Honest: Share your concerns, goals, and expectations with the therapist to ensure a productive therapeutic relationship.

  • Ask Questions: Don't hesitate to ask questions about the therapist's approach, experience, and how they can help you.

  • Trust Your Instincts: Pay attention to how you feel during the session. Trust your instincts to determine if it's a good match.

  • Provide feedback: If the therapist feels like a good fit in general, and there are aspects of your interactions that you’d like different, try letting them know. Therapists usually welcome and would love to know your experiences in treatment with them to better meet your needs.
