How do I find the right therapist for me or my child?


There are at least four ways to find the right therapist match for you or a loved one. First, we would encourage you to ask around. Ask friends who have seen therapists, people who know what is going on in the community, clergy, guidance counselors, teachers, managers, and others. When you hear the same name more than once, there’s a good chance that therapist may be a good option for you. Second, check out bios on the website. Most practices, including ours, have short bios of the therapists that describe their education, training, and specialty areas. See who seems to match your situation and needs the best. Third, if you are not sure, you can always call our office, describe your situation briefly, then let our staff make recommendations to you. They know our therapists and have a good sense of who might fit you best. Finally, many of our therapists offer a 15-minute “meet and greet” where you can get a sense of his or her personality and style with no cost and no commitment.
