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.

Finding a Child Therapist
As a parent, you probably have a lot of questions about how to best help your child. Are they learning the right social and emotional skills to be successful in the world? When your child is struggling – to make friends, take care of themselves, to do well in school, or to manage their feelings, you likely want to find a professional who can help.
Which Therapist is Right for Me?
Most therapists talk and listen to people all day, so they’re adept at holding a conversation. Even with someone who’s sharing difficult sides of themselves, a good therapist can make hard discussions feel like a natural back-and-forth. Although conversations are the medium of therapy, the purpose is to help you change your life so you can break habits and thought patterns that aren’t working or are getting in the way of your life goals.
