Psychotherapy in Missouri: Finding a Therapist Near Me

There are many psychotherapists, cognitive-behavioral counselors, psychiatrists, and psychologists available for you to see. The state of Missouri does have laws that prevent doctors from providing medical treatments intended to harm a patient. Some states have even taken steps to prevent psychologists from performing some types of psychological procedures on patients, such as electroshock therapy. The result is that therapists are limited in the techniques they can use to help their patients for fear of legal action against the therapist. Finding an individual who practices within the state’s rules and regulations can make finding the right therapist in Missouri much easier.

Therapists who practice in Missouri are required to get a license from the Missouri State Board of Mental Health and Developmental Services (MS DHSS). You can also usually find psychotherapy counselors by looking in your telephone book or searching Psychology Today on the internet. It can take many searches to find the perfect combination of specific therapist, dosage, and location. There’s really no magical cure-all, of course.

After you’ve located a therapist in Missouri, scheduled a consultation, and gotten a referral, it is important to remember that therapy is not just a walk-through with someone who shares your diagnosis. Psychotherapy involves talking through issues with your therapist and exploring how you feel about them. A good therapist will ask you a variety of questions to get at the root of the problem you are having and will help you explore new ways of approaching issues. With ongoing therapy, most mental health disorders can be treated with medication and mental therapy, but it is important to find a therapy that fits your needs.
