Check the yellow pages or on-line. Might consider starting with a Social Worker (Liscened Clinical Social Worker) first, would be cheaper. There are 3 listed in the yellow pages.

Dr. Jerry Blaylock is the best. His office is in J-town, though. And, he requires a referral. Call Mid-South Health, P-gould... Kathy Gazaway. They will work based on your income, too.

Wow, I actually was being serious. I hope you can find a good one. If I could make a recommendation, look for an LAC or LPC and make sure they have a background in mental health not rehab because the clinical experience in grad school is not the same, nor is it as intensive. Good luck.

I would go to a person who is about your age or a bit older. And of the opposite sex. That way you get a perspective from someone who is of your generation, but on the flip side - so to speak.

Yeah, I know what you are talking about and when I got your response, I thought about that. Didn't mean to come off that way, my apologies. Anyhoo, whoever suggested Michael Teague was correct, he's a really good therapist. He specializes in drug and alcohol addiction but also works with other issues. Diane Holmes is another in Jonesboro, she's very good as well.

The most important thing in finding a therapist is finding one that you can connect with and one that shares your value system. One size does not fit all in therapy.

Some questions to ask: how much?(obviously) how long?- how long do they think therapy will take, 3 mos, 6 mos, what? what is their view of progress?- it may not be the same as yours, they may take a more incremental view while you want to see big changes. how do they view humans in general?- that most people are bad? good? or somewhere in the middle?

Hope this helps you somewhat and again, I do apologize for any flippancy on my part. Best of luck.

It can't be MT b/c the word "significantly" wasn't used. He says that a LOT.
