Making the decision to seek professional help for yourself or a loved one is difficult. It is only natural to have questions such as “Will I be able to open up to a stranger?,” “Will they think I am crazy?,” “Will they be able to help?,” or “how much will it cost and will they be able to bill my insurance?”
Once the decision to seek professional help is made, the next challenge becomes finding a therapist that is right for you. While we might normally turn to friends, family, or even neighbors when seeking out a new doctor or dentist, we might not be willing to share our decision to seek a mental health professional referral as we may wish to maintain our privacy. Finding the right therapist is critical as research shows that most people that drop out of therapy do so after just one visit, presumably because in many cases the individual did not feel comfortable with their therapist.
At Great Lakes Psychology Group, we understand and have addressed these concerns in a variety of ways. First, visitors to our website can privately and conveniently search over 50 therapists by location and specialty to find the therapist that is conveniently located and experienced with treating your area of concern.
