I know I need psychiatric therapy, but why can't I bring myself to get it? How do I motivate myself to heal myself?

I definitely have some form of depression, anxiety, addiction, and body dysmorphia.
Often I feel lazy at work and in my relationship, morally bankrupt, moody, detached, forgetful, confused, blocked, sometimes paranoid. I provoke dangerous situations and test my limits often.
I know all this adds up to therapy, possibly medication.
I have great health insurance right now.
Every time I try to make an appointment I get overwhelmed, confused by all the choices, scared I'm making a wrong choice of therapist. Sometimes I make an appointment and then cancel the same day.
How do I find the correct type of therapist?
How do I follow through and get my ass on the couch?
