Many mental health issues can affect you, how you think and feel on a daily basis.

Typically, offices are only open during the work day so if you appointments needs are outside that time frame; add that to your list of interview questions. These sessions will help you build a relationship so take time to set-up a phone interview with them. It is important that you feel a connection with your potential therapist, learn their style and if they seem engaged in the conversation.
