BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESOURCES

 

FINDING A THERAPIST

Trying to find a therapist is never an easy task. Here are some helpful tips that may help make the process a bit easier.


Reaching out to your insurance company to ask for a list of behavioral health therapists who accept your insurance may be the most helpful when looking for a therapist.

Many insurance companies provide you with a case manager who will help you find a therapist. Please ask if this service is available to you when speaking to your insurance company.


A few websites that can help with the search:

Being persistent, consistent and flexible is key when trying to find a therapist.


Once you have compiled a list of therapists, call or email each one and leave a message.


If there is a wait list, it would be in your best interest to add your child to it and to several others. After your name is on several lists, set some time aside once a week to call or email the therapist to see if they have any openings.


It’s okay to meet with a couple therapists to identify which will be the best fit.  Schedule these meetings close to each other, so you do not feel like you have to start this entire process over again after meeting with someone that won’t work for you.


It is also suggested that you see the therapist at least three times before deciding if the therapist is the right therapist for you.

I DID NOT EXPECT THIS:  A VIRTUAL NEW MOM SUPPORT GROUP FOR MOMS WITH INFANTS UP TO 6 MONTHS OLD

Having a newborn or infant can come with monumental highs and lows.  During this challenging time, the isolation you may be feeling as a new mom is likely amplified.  We invite you to join a virtual space for mom with infants up to 6 months old where all feelings and thoughts, fears and hopes are shared without judgment.  


Where:  Your living room or any space in your home where you are comfortable and may have some privacy.


When:  Wednesdays at 9:00am.


Facilitated by:  Our staff psychologist, Erin O’Donnell, Psy.D. 


If you are interested in joining the New Parent Support Group, please call the front desk or send a MyChart message to your provider. You will receive a response with a Zoom invitation.
