I did a small search on the "Psychology Today" website for therpists in New York City who deal with anxiety. Two popped up but both have only been in practice for several years and neither takes insurance, not sure if that is a concern for you. But it is prefereable I think to get a T who has had MANY years experience.

I do think Daisy had a good idea in you getting a list of T's from your insurance company. Is this an option? If so, start with a list, and then call. Actually interview them on the phone and ask specific questions:

1. What are their orientations? As I said before, eclectic or integrated has worked best for me

2. How long have they been in practice

3. Have they dealt with hypochondria before and what is their basic treatment plan for it?

I think you can rule out a few T's this way, as well as get a good idea of what kind of chemistry you'll have. The minute I heard ny T's voice over the phone I knew he was the match for me. Had I known then what I know now, I would have interviewd a lot more T's and made a much more informed decision. I am simply lucky I ended up with the one I did.
