The terms counselor and therapist cover a variety of trained
professionals. The differences between therapists, psychologists,
psychiatrists, and counselors may not be as important to you as finding someone
with whom you are comfortable.
Professionals who might provide counseling services include:
Some insurance plans do not cover all types of therapists. Check
with your insurance company for details.
If you go to a therapist and don't like what happens, don't give up
on the idea of counseling. Sometimes a different counselor will fit your
personality better. Try again with someone new.
