This last summer I posted What to Look for in a Therapist and How to Find a Good Therapist hoping that my thoughts on the issue might benefit some people who find themselves in the midst of this process.
It seems that everyday more and more tools are coming out that are helping bridge that connection between therapist and client. In fact, I was pointed to this site MyTherapistMatch by one of my good friends, and I decided to take the questionairre myself to see what kind of therapist would be matched up with me.
The 79 question survey took me about 5 minutes to complete. I didn’t receive back any results for therapists in my area, but that didn’t surprise me because 1) I live up in Frisco and there are less therapists up there than say Dallas and Plano. 2) The site is still in beta so I’m sure it will take a little while for the site to be populated with therapist referrals. But I love the idea and see this is as one great tool in the search for a therapist.
If you are a person looking for a therapist I would recommend you try it out and see what results you get. And if you are a therapist, I would recommend checking out and seeing what they can do for you.
