How to Find a Therapist

Finding the right therapist for you can be difficult. Part of the challenge is the national shortage of healthcare professionals in almost every specialty. There are simply not enough highly qualified therapists available for the number of people looking to improve their quality of life through therapy. Another issue is affordability, some therapists do not accept insurance or do not accept many new patients. These factors create structural barriers to accessing care.

Let’s say the above are not an issue for you. How do you know if the person you scheduled an appointment with is actually the right therapist for you? There are many factors to consider and weigh and it helps to make an informed decision. Check out our user guides below, to help you make the important decision about which therapist may be the best fit for you at this time.
