As you begin your search for a therapist, you may have thought something like, “How am I supposed to find the best therapist for me?” Perhaps you were told to look for a certain certification, a set of initials, or a particular theory on a website or bio. But perhaps you are still afraid of making the “wrong choice.” Here’s the piece of advice I give young people and their parents who are in situations just like yours– “Find someone you like.” Studies have shown that the biggest indicator of success is the connection made between the counselor and client rather than the theory or certification.

Conflict with your partner or spouse? Unproductive communication? Recurrent episodes of anxiety or depressed mood? Overconsumption of alcohol and/or substances in an attempt to self medicate against your out of control emotions? These and many other mental health challenges are both treatable and resolvable. In my 35+ years as a therapist to residents of the greater Fox Valley area I have observed that most of my clients choose therapy when they have utilized and exhausted all coping tools and problem solving strategies. As therapist it is my role to facilitate the increase of both coping tools and problem solving skills.
