The decision to begin counseling is an important one. You want to choose a therapist who has the right kind of experience and with whom you feel comfortable. Sometimes it helps to call and have a conversation by phone before deciding if any counselor is the right fit for you. You also may want to make your decision based on the therapist's experience.
A counselor is not a doctor and cannot provide medications. For a specialist in psychiatric disorders requiring medications, you must contact a psychiatrist.
You may want to call your insurance company to see if the counselor is a provider in your network.
You also may want to ask a friend, pastor, guidance counselor, or doctor who they recommend.
