If you feel you would benefit from talking to someone, the type of person you want to seek out is a therapist. Therapists can then help you decide whether you should also be seeing a psychiatrist for medications.

As for narrowing down therapists, take that list of ones that accept your insurance and cull the list of therapists and offices with poor reviews.

I would have a list of a few therapists that meet your criteria (located close, covered by insurance, etc). If you don’t feel like you click with the first therapist you see, visit another one. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist, and don’t give up your hunt after one bad appointment or match.
