How to Choose the Best Psychologist

Note that there is no such thing as the “best psychologist.” The best psychologist for someone else might be the worst psychologist for you, and vice versa. The best psychologist is someone who has the experience and credentials needed to provide you with the kind of treatment that you need. The best psychologist is one who practices close to you and is willing to treat you, and perhaps most importantly, the best psychologist is the one you can connect with – a psychologist who can truly understand who you are and how to help you.

Research Your Psychologist

Since you have access to the World Wide Web, why not use the Internet to your advantage? Research online. Check out different review sites and social media. Although it may be difficult to find reviews about psychologists, because therapy is a very private thing, the best psychologists have been recommended by other patients and professionals. For instance, Jane Beresford, Psy.D. is proud to be the premier psychologist for children and adults in Sherman Oaks, recommended by past and current patients and professionals alike.

E!Dr. Beresford provided psychological screenings and evaluations for “What’s Eating You?”, E! Channel’s reality show about extreme eating disorders. The series chronicled the lives of men and women whose very survival was at risk as they battled not only their distorted body images, but also self-created, life-threatening food rituals and compulsions.
