Health Tip: Choosing a Psychologist

(HealthDay News) -- More than 30 million Americans need help dealing with their feelings and problems, says the American Psychological Association. From the loss of a job to the death of a loved one, these stressful events can be debilitating and require outside help.

The APA mentions important questions to ask when choosing a psychologist:

  • Are you a licensed psychologist? How many years have you been practicing?

  • I have been feeling "x" and I'm having problems with "y." What experience do you have in helping people with these types of problems?

  • What are your areas of expertise?

  • What kinds of treatments do you use? Have they been proven effective?

  • What are your fees?

  • What types of insurance do you accept?
