How to Choose the Best Therapist for You, Rochester, New York

Life comes with many trails and difficulties, both external and internal. Issues such as domestic violence and anger management can have destructive effects if not handled appropriately. One of the healthiest things you can do is visit a professional therapist to help guide you through your struggles. White Spruce Counseling, located in Rochester, NY, houses an exceptionally caring and professional staff trained to help you find healing.

When searching for the best therapist for your anger management or domestic violence stress, it’s important to ask these questions before committing to a clinic:

  • Ask for Advicetherapist: Visiting a therapist is a brave decision. Some are tempted to keep quiet about their mental health, but opening up to friends and family can lead you to better mental health. If you know someone who has gone through a similar experience as you, let them know you’re searching and ask if they have a recommendation.

  • Consider Your End Goal: There are many different types of counselors. Depending on your wants and needs, it’s important to understand these different types to help you choose the best one for you. For example, a family therapist will talk in a group setting with your family members, while a cognitive therapist will dive into your thoughts and beliefs and help you change negative, harmful thoughts into healthy ones. Research the kind you need before booking an appointment.

  • Schedule a Face to Face: Often, the initial consultation is free. The first meeting should act somewhat as an interview process for both of you. Ask questions about their experience and qualifications. Pay attention to how they behave. Do they listen to you attentively? Or are they distracted? How do they make you feel? Do you feel safe? You can learn a lot through a short meeting. Listen to your gut on whether a they are right for you.
