There is a reason that you are looking for a mental health provider. But even with our
niche specialties locator service, you may have difficulty finding
the service you want. One reason is because we don't have room to list
all the counselor's areas of experience and training. Another reason is because counselors tend
to talk about what they do using professional terminology.
For example, if you are worried all the time, look for the word "anxiety." If you have been separated from someone
or something you love and you can't stand the pain, look under "transitions"
(life changes) or "grief and loss" counseling.
If you or someone you love is seriously ill, abused, or recovering from extremely distressing experience that has caused severe
emotional shock, you might look under the specialty titled
Got out-of-control kids? Take a look at "children and adolescents" counseling. Still more issues are included under "family" counseling.
If you can't find "marriage counselor
" or "marriage counseling," you need to look under "couples and marriage counseling" or "relationships." Or you may
problems with relationships or commitment and seek help on an individual basis
by looking for counselors under "Men's Issues" or "Women's Issues."

In the mental health field, concerns like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and low self-esteem
are as common as a head colds are in physical medicine. Often the counselors don't list them as a specialty. Counselors who are experienced in dealing
with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and low self-esteem often include these issues under the heading "General Practice Areas" rather than as their
"specialty." Check on "counselors by city" to review professionals located near where you live or work.
Ask questions of the counselor before beginning treatment. See "suggestions for choosing a counselor, psychologist, social worker, therapist or psychotherapist." If you don't know what the
professional initials mean after a counselor's name, find them in the
Dictionary of Initials, Acronyms and Abbreviations used by Counselors and Social Workers."
