Finding a psychotherapist can be a challenge. Ideally someone you know can make a recommendation. If not, find out how much experience the person has, that’s a good starting point. Then, give them an outline of your problem and listen carefully to their responses. It can be helpful to state the problem in exactly the same way to several people, and to take notes on their responses. This can give you good guidance in choosing. Finally, it matters greatly that you simply feel comfortable with the person you’re talking to.
You might also benefit from reading the Consumer Reports study on the effectiveness of Drugs vs Talk Therapy, based on the responses of several thousand subscribers.
