It is important to find a therapist you feel comfortable with and one who is trained to treat what you are diagnosed with. So, how do you go about finding a good therapist? You interview prospective therapists.
Healthy Place provides a list of questions you can ask a prospective therapist (http://www.healthyplace.com/blogs/treatinganxiety/2010/10/how-to-interview-a-potential-therapist). Asking these questions not only provides you with information regarding the therapist’s expertise, educational background, and treatment strategies, but also gives you a good idea of how comfortable you feel talking with them.
Another website with some good tips on interviewing prospective therapists is http://www.wikihow.com/Choose-a-Therapist.
I hope this helps you on your journey of self discovery. Susan
