Home > Be Healthy > Health Library > Tips for Finding a Counselor or Therapist
The terms counselor and therapist cover a variety of trained professionals. The differences between therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and counselors may not be as important to you as finding someone with whom you are comfortable.
Professionals who might provide counseling services include:
Some insurance plans do not cover all types of therapists. Check with your insurance company for details.
If you go to a therapist and don't like what happens, don't give up on the idea of counseling. Sometimes a different counselor will fit your personality better. Try again with someone new.
