Hi. So I live in Pioneer Valley of Western Mass, just out of college at ~23. I've got ADHD and some depression and anxiety, and I'm finally looking for professional help. I've been slogging through all of the people on Psychology Today's therapist finder
, but so far only one or two of them seem like a possible match for me, if that.
I'm a hardline rationalist, so I'm definitely leaning toward finding someone in the CBT area. A huge chunk of the people I've found online describe themselves in a New Agey/touchy-feely way, or work in BS modalities like psychoanalysis or hypnotherapy. Ideally, I'd like someone who's practical and even a little tough with me, but attentive to the subtleties of my thought process and where I'm going wrong.
I tend to fit in with the general psychographic of AskMe, so I thought I'd see if you guys could suggest someone. If you live in Western MA, who's your therapist? Are they good?
