Get Rid of Depression with a Qualified Psychotherapist

Depression can kill your marriage. If you think you or your partner suffer from depression, get help right away. Here are a few tips to help you find a qualified therapist near you:

Start with Your Network

Ask people you know and trust. Word-of-mouth referrals are often effective. If you know someone who’s already sought help for depression, reach out to that contact. You might get lucky and find the name of your future psychotherapist this way.

Do Your Research

Go online. Plenty of doctors these days have sites. Take time to scour through those sites until you find the ones that offer you the services that you and your partner require. Take a look at credentials and qualifications as well. Are the staff members trained for the work? Do they have experience dealing with couples where one partner suffers from depression?

Note the Location and Hours

Anything that’s more than an hour away might be too far and inconvenient for you and your spouse, so make sure you choose one in a location that benefits you both. An office that’s near to where you live or where you both work would be an excellent choice. Don’t forget to check their operating hours. Do they offer services on weekends? What about emergency sessions? Can they book you as soon as possible, or do you have to wait for a long time just to set an appointment? If the timing is off, either see if you can adjust a few things with your schedule, or find a counseling center that offers hours convenient for you and your partner.

Book an Appointment

One on one interactions are the best way to tell if you and your partner can work with the therapist or not. Are you both comfortable with the therapist to open up about your problems about depression? Do you feel judged or criticized in any way? A face-to-face meeting can help you and your partner decide if you’ve found the right one or if you need to keep looking.

Trust Your Instincts

No matter how skilled a therapist is, if s/he doesn’t make a connection with you and your partner, then walk away. Trust your instincts. If your gut is telling you something’s off, then it’s best to move on.
