Several people have emailed me asking for advice finding a therapist, and I worry I haven’t been much help. One of the advantages of being a psychiatrist is not having to worry about finding a psychiatrist. I know a few people in southern Michigan personally and can give some advice if you live there; outside that I’m stuck.
Luckily Gruntled and Hinged just wrote a good series of articles on how to find and contact a therapist for mental health problems. I’ll be referring those kinds of questions there in the future.
But I’ll also open up one question to anyone who can help: anyone want to volunteer the name of a good therapist whom they would recommend to other readers? Clearly geography is an issue here, so I would be most interested in knowing about tele-therapists or people in the Bay Area / New York City where a lot of SSC readers tend to congregate.
