There's a great service from Psychology Today. It lists therapists by area, and lets you read about them and check out their web pages. Here's the link:http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/prof_search.php
Actually, when people come to therapy for the first time, they almost always say at the end "That wasn't bad at all...I should have come sooner." It's nice to have someone who will listen to you for 50 minutes, and focus only on helping you.
