Making the decision to seek therapy is a big step and can be intimidating. Opening up to a complete stranger about your innermost thoughts and feelings can be a scary prospect for most people. You will have to work hard digging deep into past issues that you know will probably be emotional and challenging. As such, finding a therapist with who you can connect is very important. The relationship between therapist and client should be centered around trust and you should feel like they understand you and that you can open up to them. Here are a few tips to help you find the therapist that is right for you. 

Consult Your Provider 

If you plan to pay for therapy with your insurance, you will want to take the time to see what kinds of therapies are covered and what are not. This will help you to save time exploring options that will not be covered 

Ask Your Loved Ones

Chances are that you know someone who has sought therapy for one reason or another. Ask them about their experiences, what they liked or disliked, or what a general therapy session was like. You can start to think about what type of therapy setting may benefit you most. We live in a very social media connected society. Reach out to acquaintances that have posted about therapy or post a status asking for recommendations if you are comfortable doing so. 

Use Reliable Online Sources

Looking for therapists online can be overwhelming. However, the internet has some amazing resources if you look in the right places. Finding reliable sources is key to obtaining the correct information that you need. Take your time and read the biographies posted about therapists, types of therapy offered, and different locations near you. You may feel less overwhelmed once you start learning some basic information about treatment options and you should feel free to contact multiple therapists until you find the right one for you.

Finding the right therapist is key to having successful therapy sessions. Asking your loved ones or friends about their therapy experiences can be a great place to start. You can begin to learn about what other people thought was positive and what they thought was negative about a type of therapy or certain therapists. You can also begin to research online about different therapy options and locations near you.
