Here's a sample of criteria to help you get started in finding the right counselor for you:
- Compile a list of websites and other resources where you can search for a counselor
- Deciding what form (s) of therapy will suit you best so that you can narrow your search
- Ask friends and family if they know or recommend any reputable counselor
- Create a list of questions to ask when you have narrowed down your search to only a few

Narrow your search further by using your location as a starting point and then build from there by adding the style of therapy that you want, whether you prefer a male or female rates and what they charge.
