So, you have an appointment setup to meet with a therapist or counselor, now what?
When looking for a therapist or counselor you want to find someone who fits with your needs. The wonderful thing about mental health these days is that you can likely find a specialist for just about any need. Many states now recognize therapists who have expertise in working with marriage and families in an effort to help define more specialties within the field. In the state of NY there are Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Mental Health Counselors, and Creative Arts Therapists. It can be pretty confusing, not to mention overwhelming!
