We make finding the "right" fit as effortless as possible
Building connections- one person at a time.
How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for me?
The best way is to ask some questions during the initial evaluation. While we are evaluating you and your circumstances to see if we can help you, it is your opportunity to evaluate your therapist and see if he or she is the right fit for you as well. You will want to be looking to see if you feel comfortable talking to me and if you like the therapist's style of working with clients. The best thing is to come in for an evaluation and “try us out”. It does no harm to come in for an initial evaluation to determine if you and your therapist will be a good fit. We all understand that although we have similar professional experiences and qualifications, at the end of the day, it can often be our "personality" that makes you feel most comfortable.
Should I see a male or female therapist?
There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Many times, it just depends on personal preferences. Some people really enjoy the perspective of the opposite sex, while others feel most comfortable speaking to a therapist of the same sex. As with anything, it is much more about you feeling comfortable with your therapist than anything else.
What kind of therapist do I need?
When you fill out our Appointment Request Form, there are questions that we ask you about the specific issues you are dealing with and your personal preferences. It is at this time that we can help you determine which therapist you will probably work best with.
For example, a parent requesting services for help with their child who is showing high levels of anxiety would probably work best with one of our child therapists that specializes in anxiety!
Another person may contact us because he is having a hard time dealing with stress and is motivated to make changes in his life. This person may work better with a therapist who is more mindful-based in the therapy approach.
What professional qualifications should I be looking for in a therapist?
Each and every therapist at PPG has been hand-selected to work at our practice because of their unique professional perspectives and/or qualities. Having said that, all of our therapists are highly qualified and have the following:
- Master's degree (social work, counseling or psychology) - Professional License (LCSW, LCSWA, LCMHC, LCMHCA) - Consultation and Supervision - Professional Liability Insurance - Specialized training and certification in areas of expertise
