Talk therapy can be a highly effective way to treat mental-health issues, however there is something called therapeutic alliance which means finding the right working relationship between client and therapist.

About 75% of people who have tried psychotherapy get some benefit from it, according to the American Psychological Association, and those benefits can include improved physical health and a happier, more productive life.

Right now there is a record high number of people seeking out mental health counseling services, but it can feel overwhelming when sifting through dozens of listings online. How do you know you’ve ground the right therapist?

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Emily Camera, LCSW with McNulty Counseling and Wellness joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom to help viewers figure out what makes a therapist a good fit.
