How to pick a therapist to help my anxiety (before pregnancy/parenting)

How do I pick the right therapist to help with my anxiety, stress, indecisiveness, and perfectionist tendencies? What kinds of therapy/techniques/approaches might be most helpful? How do I quickly assess whether to stick with someone or look elsewhere? What are reasonable expectations of how much I can improve in therapy and how quickly? I'm terrible at making decisions-- I need help! (Especially since we want to start trying for kids in a few months so I feel real urgency to make progress quickly to feel comfortable going ahead, for both my and the kid's sake.) DC-area, FYI.

It's both me and the job, help me fix both.

Nearly everything I liked about my current job has evaporated, and I am left with stress and anxiety. In addition, I've always been indecisive about what my career should be. At this point should I try to build a career at my current company or leave and try something else? [more inside]

What happens when you marry someone you love but aren't deeply "in love" with?

Have you (or someone you know well) loved someone but weren't "in love" with them (had a strong, warm, happy relationship but one that wasn't very intense, passionate, etc) and gotten married/been in a long-term partnership? Did it matter that you weren't "in love" exactly? If it led to problems, what were they? [more inside]

He seems permanently stuck on the fence - what should I do?

7 months ago, I started a new job and immediately struck up a friendship with a co-worker of mine who had a girlfriend. I'll call him Derek. From day one, Derek and I realized we had an eerie amount in common. Our conversations were always electric and we never failed to make each other just cackle with laughter. Us having a fantastic time together at work was as far as it ever went, but that was enough. Looking back on it, I have to say that I was oblivious to how important he would become to me. I acknowledged that I was infatuated with him, but as that sometimes happens when you work with attractive people, I expected it to fizzle out in time and then we could get back to being friends. That didn't happen. [more inside]

How can I broach this subject without being clingy? SHOULD I even try?

A longtime friend with whom I'd been in near-daily contact (via phone calls, emails, online chats - she's out of state) for ages now has suddenly become incredibly scarce. Nowadays we talk maybe once every week or so, and then only for an hour or so at most. I don't know what to do or say without being clingy, and given that she MAY also be clinically depressed, I'm afraid of saying anything that'll make things worse for her. [more inside]
