How can I choose a good therapist or psychiatrist? How can I know they are good at what they do or good for me? (Quora)

1st off, there are not many psychiatrists who actual engage in psychotherapy as they are pushed ever more into doing medication management. Clinical social workers provide the most therapy services in the US and many psychologists specialize in psychotherapy. Almost everyone you think about working with will be well trained and have the proper licenses, though you wan to check that. The real question is, are you comfortable with therapist you meet with. That can start be assessed in the initial phone call and the following initial appointment. Remember, a perfectly good therapist may be someone with whom you personally don’t connect with. It’s neither blamed on your or the therapist, it’s just a matter of fit. That should be your key point in deciding on whom to work with. Good luck.
