What specialty should I pick? How do I know if I need a specialist?

Most therapists are experienced with common mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety, as well as general life stressors such as relationships, transitions, and self-esteem.

If your main reason for seeking therapy is a specific challenge such as trauma, addictions / substance use, ADHD, eating disorders, or an undiagnosed mental illness, you will benefit most from seeing a specialist: a therapist who has advanced training and experience and focuses most of their practice on a specific challenge. Filter by “Specialties” to view therapists who are experts in the challenge you’re facing.
