What type of New Orleans therapist is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.
If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How do I choose a therapist in New Orleans?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals. We have several licensed counselors for you to choose from.
What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there’s no ‘right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
How do I use my insurance for therapy?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with potential therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy. Please call to see if we accept your insurance.
