I'm looking for a CBT (cognitive behavioral) therapist in Boston. I'm interested in talking about relationships, my goals, my career, etc. I have a history of dysthymia/mild depression. My insurance is Harvard
Pilgrim HMO. I'm open to other varieties of therapy around the CBT
vein, dialectical behavioral therapy or whatever, as long as the
person is good. If you have a suggestion of someone who doesn't take
Harvard Pilgrim, or you don't know, please list them anyway.

Austin Therapist Recommendations: A friend is looking for a therapist to work through some issues. He wants someone who is active in conversation and is willing to confront him on things when necessary. He's had therapists in the past who were nice but too passive, and just listened more than they offered ideas and suggestions. The ideal therapist would listen without judging but would help stimulate new ideas and change in his life. Do you know of anyone like this?
A while ago, I asked about the implications of accessing mental health care
and possibly having a diagnosis tied to me. From the answers, I've concluded that in my specific situation, any help I need will have to be "off the record." Because that's my decision, this has made it hard to obtain care. How do I go about finding it anyway? [more inside]
