Where can I get references and reviews for therapists in my area of pasadena ca?

Im switching to allied physicians group through unitedhealthcare. I have had bad experiences with some therapists. Most don't return calls. Id prefer to find one that utilizes hypnosis, ideally of course. Im willing to travel farther out for a brilliant therapist. Where can I get reviews, hints, references? Im constantly going into this blind to later find out the therapist is some detached, uncaring, snobbish,, creepy, unimaginative bore who is not qualified to treat me and treats every person who comes in the same, as though they are all cast from cookie cutter molds. I need a therapist whether they are master clinicians, psychologists or even the dear abby friend type, as long as they are very good. I realize that a degree does NOT a good professional make. In fact degrees and the endless cycle of seeing people seems to make a**holes of many doctors who look at their patients as though they are mere numbers. I have a great deal of intuition and insight myself, so I can see into them while they are endeavoring to chip away at me. The last person I saw was a "psychologist". Before I saw her Ididn'tt know what she was. They never told me when they made an appt. for me at my primary care doctors facility. She is apparently someone who wanders in to administer to her "patients". When I saw her walking around I thought she herself was a mental patient. She clearly is into her job for either the prestige of the title, her parents forced her into something for the prestige of the time, or she got into it for the money. It was obvious she doesn't give a d**n about the actual sentient being sitting in front of her. She focused only on one issue, when I told her I had a few to discuss, threw some guided visualizations periodicals at me (and I am a hypnotist so I found that ironic!) and proclaimed me healed in five sessions! I found it extremely unprofessional. So having written this.. it is extremely important for me to find someone devoid of ego and attitude, who can look me in the eye, and is truly kind/caring and adept at healing, ideas and resolving issues!!! Is that so much to ask?? LOL

That's gonna be difficult. Interview a few therapists and make sure they don't charge for initial consultations.

To find a good match is difficult. These people have large caseloads. This makes it difficult to get to know the patient. They rely on a diagnosis and notes rather than an individual. Who is good for one person may not be right for another. If your insurance provides a list plus funding for psychiatrists, see if... More
