I desperately need CBT! I wish you took Virginia Premier Insurance….I can’t find anyone reputable to do this with because of my MCO. What would you recommend I do? I’m at the end of my rope….
Hi there, I understand that it can be tough to deal with the headache of who takes your insurance while trying to find a good therapist! I worked in community mental health for some time, and I think Abraham had a good suggestion to reach out to your local community service board. Often they have very qualified individuals who are trained in CBT. Often when an intake is done at a community mental health office you are just assigned an available therapist. However, you can usually specifically request someone who is trained in CBT at your initial intake, and if that is your desire it might be worth the wait to see that therapist/find the right fit.
Best of luck to you!
Hi there. If it is financially available, Thriveworks has a number of self-pay options that might be worth considering. If this is not an option, community-based mental health can also be helpful and you can find a provider through: https://www.virginiapremier.com/find-a-doctor/. Many therapists are now introduced to CBT in their graduate coursework. In your hunt, it would be worthwhile ensuring that a provider is properly trained if you are looking for a specific type (CBT for Panic Disorder, CBT for Social Anxiety Disorder, CBT for epilepsy, etc.)
Hey. I would recommend you reach out to a therapist and entertain the idea that other methodologies may also be useful. The fact that you participate in CBT therapy and you still feel you are at the end of your rope, might not be a reflection on the model itself but perhaps a sign that other approaches may be worth trying.
