To choose a therapist for your child you should contact at least 3 to 4 child therapists before deciding on one.

Ask around and get reviews on the child therapist and see what the child therapist experience is.

The more experience the child therapist the better the child therapist will usually be able to help your child.

As the child's doctor for a referral and who they may think may be a good therapist.

Seeking information on a therapist from your child's doctor is a great way to find a therapist for a child as they may have likely referred other children to certain therapists.

When you do find some child therapists you should sit down and talk to three of them yourself before you decide on one.

Don't just pick a child therapist because they are the cheapest even if you have to pay for them.

Pick a child therapist that has experience and is good with kids.

I would recommend that you carefully study the reviews before making a choice, because health issues, and especially mental ones, should not be trusted by just anyone. Look at drmental.org some online therapy platforms, explore the pros and cons, and make decisions. It is very convenient that on these platforms, therapy takes place in an online format.
