A word about different license types
All therapists listed on LicensedTherapists.com who are located in Columbia, Missouri have their licenses' verified each year. As you can see, there are several different state licenses including marriage and family therapist, licensed professional counselor, mental health counselor, clinical social worker, psychologist, psychiatrist, and psychiatric nurse. Though the training for each of these licenses is very different, finding the right professional for you is a combination of matching professional specialties along with a good personal fit.
A caring and competent licensed therapist should be comfortable answering your questions about therapy. Additionally, competency involves far more than listening to clients talk. During an interview, an experienced practitioner will convey warmth, genuineness, and respect for you and your concerns. He or she should be interested in your thoughts and may ask you to elaborate on certain things.
After the interview, ask yourself if you received specific insightful feedback. A good therapist should display a mutual trust, finding a balance between honoring your beliefs as well as not being afraid to confront or challenge your beliefs where appropriate.
The right therapist will make you feel at ease and confident in them as both a person and a psychotherapist. Human wisdom and personal insight are just as important as understanding technique and theory. Ideally, you'll feel inspired and hopeful about your work together after the interview. In addition, trust your initial instincts when it comes to continuing therapy. How long you stay with a particular therapist should be a collaborative process with you having as much voice as the therapist.
