Finding the right therapist can be a challenging process, one that is necessary, and often, long overdue.  Below is a listing to help you begin your process.  Since I have high standards, my directory is a safe place to find a provider.  I require all therapists who are listed on here, to have a graduate-level education, a relevant license and experience in their specialty, and high ethical standards.  The primary role of a mental health provider is to assist in the client's own self-discovery, increased awareness, and ultimately "finding their own answers".  When the therapist is focused on maintaining a professional and ethical practice, and the client is focused on "showing up for their lives", a good partnership may likely arise.  For specialization, rates, insurance accepted, and other information, please contact the individual provider.
I sincerely wish you the best of luck in your search for the right therapist!
You are not alone.
