Hi,

I can't recommend a counsellor or a psychologist... but just to advise you that not all counselling / psychologists are covered by health insurance - but some are!

I would suggest you ask your doctor to refer you to a psychiatrist. This will be covered by your insurance. The psychiatrist can then either see you themselves, or refer you to a psychologist who works under their guidance for counselling... also covered by insurance.

(Just to clarify, what might happen is that your doctor refers you to a psychiatrist who does not speak English who then refers you to one who does... this is what happened to me.)

On the other hand, if you find a private counsellor, this will not be covered by your insurance. Of course, if you're willing to pay, this isn't an issue... but I see you're a student so I'm guessing that you might prefer to have the treatment under your insurance. Please excuse me if I'm wrong.
This user would like to thank Vlh22 for this useful post:

Jean Pierre Mueller at Mon Repos is a psychiatrist who speaks English but I don't know if he treats in English. I would give him a call and leave a message on his answering machine. He is definitely covered by insurance.
