How do I find the right mental health therapist?

Finding the right therapist or doctor for any symptom is subjective. However, there are some key questions to consider when seeking help: 

  • Does the doctor specialize in the symptoms or condition you have?
  • What is the doctor's level of experience in treating your condition?
  • What his his/her treatment philosophy? (e.g., do they typically default to medication, or approach conditions more iteratively?) 
  • What is the doctor’s success (recovery) rate? 

These are just a sampling of questions you should consider as you identify a therapist or doctor. Visit our provider directory to learn more about Swedish therapists and doctors.
