Life throws all sorts of things our way and it’s tough to manage some of it on our own. I’ve used various therapists throughout my life and still do when I need extra support.

1. Online directories

There are many online directories that list mental health therapists in your area. Many of these sites allow you to search by specialty, location, insurance acceptance, language spoken and more. Some popular online directories include Psychology Today's Therapist Finder and Good Therapy.

Professional organizations for mental health professionals, such as the American Psychological Association and the National Association of Social Workers, can provide you with lists of local therapists who specialize in particular areas or approaches to treatment.

Once you have found a therapist, make sure to communicate openly and honestly with them about your needs and concerns. This will help ensure that your therapist can provide the best possible care for you.
