How to Find a Good Therapist

Finding a good therapist is not always an easy task, and you are probably wondering how to find a good therapist. Our team at Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare PLLC understands this question well! After all, we’ve asked ourselves the same question, and are doing our best to make the search for good therapy as easy as possible!


We at Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare PLLC recommend that you begin your search for a good therapist by asking friends and family members for a referral or recommendation. Consider asking loved ones if they have worked with a great therapist in the past, or if they know any licensed professionals personally. You may consider providing additional information when asking for this referral, such as the type of specialities you are looking for, the experience of your future therapist, or anything else that you desire in a therapy relationship.


Sometimes, we prefer not to bring family and friends into the search for a therapist. In the case where a referral or recommendation is not an option, or if you would rather find a therapist on your own, you may want to consider using a therapist finder or an online search tool. When searching online, Carolina Partners recommends looking specifically for a counselor whose philosophy of working with clients seems to align well with yours. If you are not sure where to start your online search, consider the Carolina Partners online search portal. Our easy-to-use search feature allows you to filter your search via accepted insurance, speciality, and availability!

Once you find a couple of therapists who seem to be good fits, consider scheduling a phone call or consultation. A phone call or consultation is extremely helpful because you can use this time to ask questions, and to further narrow down your search. When you call us at Carolina Partners, we can then give you additional information in regards to the experience, training, and speciality of our counselors; plus, we can answer any of your additional questions about how to find a good therapist. We can give you feedback, provide insight, and point you in the direction of a therapist who might be the right fit for you based on your needs, desires, and values. This kind of information is invaluable when searching for the right therapist!


All in all, finding a good therapist is a personal decision. This is why the team at Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare PLLC staffs a diverse, talented, and experienced group of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, LCSWs, and clinicians educated in a multitude of areas, including mental health, nutrition, naturopathic health, and general wellness.
