For Therapy Thursday, KJ Reid shared the importance of finding a therapist and the advantages of going to therapy. Therapy benefits everyone and should be accessible to all. Sometimes finding the perfect therapist can be a struggle if you don’t know where to look and how to find one. Reid suggests the following on the search for a therapist for your needs that helps you feel comfortable and edified.

  • Ask family & friends for recommendations
  • Use online search engines like HelpPRO & Psychology Today 
  • Ask your primary care doctor for a referral
  • Ask your insurance for a list of providers covered by your plan
  • If you are a college student, see if the campus has a counseling center
  • See if your employer has an EAP 
  • Try an app like Talkspace
