Where should I get therapy?

Jordan Harbinger AI:

There are several ways to find a good therapist. Here are a few steps you can take:

  1. Research resources in your area: You can use platforms like psychologytoday.com, which is essentially a directory of therapists. You can also look through your insurance directory or simply Google therapists in your area.

  2. Ask for recommendations: If you know people in therapy or in the medical field, like a primary care physician, ask them for referrals. Word of mouth can be a great way to find a trusted professional.

  3. Make a few appointments: It's normal to try a few therapists before you find the right fit. You're not locked into one person forever. Do a few sessions, three, four, five, and see if it's a fit.

Remember, the most important factor in therapy is rapport. You should feel connected to your therapist and trust them. If you're dealing with trauma, you might want to look into therapists and centers that are specifically geared towards trauma. But ultimately, finding someone you feel comfortable with is key.
