How to Find the Right Therapist

by on Saturday, July 24th, 2021

When someone has a mental illness of some kind, they want to make sure they find the best therapist for their situation. The same is true for someone who has any other type of therapy needs, whether they are having relationship difficulties, trouble dealing with phobias, are struggling with an addiction, etc. However, finding the right therapist for your specific situation can sometimes be a challenge. 

Where to Begin Your Search

Therapists are a dime a dozen, and it can seem overwhelming trying to find one. The type of insurance you have will weed out some of them, but, likely, you’ll still be left with many to choose from. 

Start by searching for a therapist who treats your specific situation. A clinical therapist can handle some things, while others may require that you see a psychologist or psychiatrist. Determine what you need and start making phone calls from there. Ask to speak to the therapist on the phone. Ask where they went to school and make sure they have the proper licenses and accreditations for the treatments you hope to receive from them.

Searching for a Therapist Like You Are Dating

Remember when you first started seriously dating? If you’re like most of us, you went through several people before finding that one special person with whom you felt a connection. It’s the same with a therapist. You may have to see several before you find one you truly click with. There may be some therapists where you’ll know from the very first appointment that someone is not the right fit for you. However, in most cases, it may take several visits before you know for sure. 

However, this can be challenging; to know if someone is the right therapist for you, you may have to see them several times. Then if you aren’t feeling it, you’ll need to start over, which can be tough. Pouring your heart out about your concerns only to have to do it over and over again until you find the right therapist can feel overwhelming. It’s crucial to remember that this process will be worth it in the long run when you find the best therapist for you and your needs.
