I would prefer a woman, and not really specializing anything in particular besides anxiety/stress management and sleeping issues, and someone who isn't just going to try to immediately prescribe a bunch of anti-depressants instead of helping get to the root of the issues.
I know it can be hard to find a therapist who is the right match, but any first hand experience would be great, especially if you have/had been seeing them for a long period of time.
Any insight would be helpful. Thanksss.
PS Yay Obama.
