    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    How to search for a therapist

    Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD posted:
    To find a therapist in your area, consider the following suggestions:

    • Ask a trusted friend for a recommendation
    • Ask a trusted physician
    • Research whether there is a local psychologist or social work association in your area; they might have a referral service
    • See my suggestion for finding a psychologist in my resources section

    Please note that I also offer recommendations for choosing a therapist under my Tips section.

    Yes, and let me add that the American Counseling Association website will offer you information on fully licensed professional counselors in your area. I vote for the friend recommendation and also suggest a telephone or in-person appointment to see whether you find this professional a good fit for you at this time in your life. What works for the friend is not always what works for you.
