Guide to Finding Therapists in Buffalo, New York

Located on the shores of Lake Erie, Buffalo is the second largest city in the state of New York. With a population of over 258,000 residents, area attractions include a visit to Niagara Falls which is located north of the city, the Edward M. Cotter fireboat (considered the world’s oldest active fireboat) and the third oldest zoo in the United States – the Buffalo Zoo.  Buffalo has faced a generational economic crisis and is starting to see a positive change with the announcement of Tesla opening up a plant and employing the area residents.

For decades, Buffalo has dealt with many issues within its city’s economy. Part of the Rust Belt, Buffalo was a highly populated city during the 1950s but has seen those people leave in droves for the suburbs and other cities in almost seventy years. With the loss of traditional manufacturing jobs, higher labor costs and the exodus of the city’s population, Buffalo quickly became one of the poorest cities in the United States. Unemployment for the city is now at 12.5% and a reported 31.2% of its city residents live below the poverty line with an annual income of $27,850. Crime is an issue for the city as it was ranked as the 15th-worst in the nation for violent crime.

A National Institute of Mental Health has found that one in every five adolescents ages 13-18 is currently living with a mental health condition.  New legislation has been enacted due to the growing mental health problems amongst Buffalo’s public schools’ children. Of those surveyed, 25.7% reported that they feel sad or hopeless almost every day for 2 weeks more in a row. In that group, 13.2% has thought about suicide and 9.2% of the high school students interviewed have attempted suicide. Recently, in efforts to combat the growing issues, The New York State Education Department has issued the “New York State Framework for Mental Health Education Instruction” to help administrators and teachers re-frame the conversation of mental health within the classrooms.

Lack of employment and increased poverty can contribute to stress and anxiety amongst a host of other mental health issues. Our Buffalo therapists can provide you with an individual treatment plan to help you during your journey to wellbeing.  Whether someone in your family suffers from a mental illness or you are one facing these issues, you do not have to do this alone at home, in relationships, or at work or school. Our expert therapist stays educated on current industry trends in approaches, and treatments. Rest assured that during your session, while you are sharing your thoughts and feelings, you are receiving the latest up-to-date services. First, determine the ailments that you suffer from while looking for recommendations and our community of trained professionals can help you demystify the process. When selecting your qualified Buffalo area professional, make sure that they are local and their office hours are compatible with yours. This ensures success when scheduling appointments and the ability to keep them with ease during your journey.

Questions to aid you during the research process are:

Why am I seeking help?
What are my goals in therapy?
Am I more comfortable with a man or a woman?
Are there any personal aspects I’m not willing to discuss?
Do I want to be able to lead the discussion, or have it led?
How long do I plan to attend therapy?
Does my problem need extra specialization?

It is important for you to find the right chemistry with your therapist as your therapy journey is about you and your needs. In many cases, a strong relationship with your therapist will aide in the success of your treatment as they will help you process the challenges that arise in your life. Take time to connect by viewing their profiles, bios, and blog posts. Once you have narrowed down the list of therapists that meet your needs, locations, and schedule, take time to call them for a phone interview to see if you like their style and if they were empathetic and interested. Mental health does not discriminate against race, age or gender and finding the right therapist does not need to add to that stress or confusion. Investing in you is important and we wish you the best in your personal journey of making a change for a better life. There is help in restoring your joy and hope as you do not have to struggle alone.
