I don't have much experience finding Ts since I have only had one. My daughter has a history of anorexia and her T did family therapy with us. It became obvious that I needed individual help and he twisted my arm into seeing someone. I was in a crisis state and grabbed onto my T as a lifeline and we have clicked. I told my daughter's T that I needed a married male older than I am and he send me to my current T. My T said something at our first session that I will always remember. He said that he would do anything he could to help me, and that if we were not a good match he would recommend me to someone else. If I were you I would try and get a recommendation from someone who knows you and has some idea of what your problems are and what kind of therapy you want. It should ideally be someone who knows lots of Ts and would spend some time trying to match you with someone compatible. My husband asked my T for a recommendation and also clicked with that person right away. My T thought about it for a day or so before he gave my husband a name, first calling her to make sure she was seeing new patients. It is too bad your mom doesn't want to get involved in this way because it seems like she is in a perfect positon to help you with this. Perhaps she has a colleague who you could talk to about a recommendation. I would suggest you ask your family doctor but I think sometimes they don't know much about therapy and just send patients to friends. Hope this helps.
