I went through two other therapists before I completely lucked into my current one, so I understand what you're going through. The first guy talked to me for 10 minutes before deciding I needed medication. The second one treated me like a drinking buddy, and didn't take the hypochondria seriously at all.

I don't know how to tell you where to find a good T in New York, I wish I could. All I know is what worked for me and that was treating my anxiety and depression firsthand. The hypochondria disappeared as I got better. There also used to be a hypochondria online community which helped me a lot, but I see that no longer exists.

What I think is very encouraging is that you RECOGNIZE you are a hypochondriac. So many do not, and refuse to believe they have other issues which are causing the hypochondria. And they live the rest of their lives like that, in complete fear and desperation. You are on the right track, we just need to find you a good therapist!
