Amazing Resource for Providers and Patients

This is a great and timeless resource for anyone curious about different types of therapy (There are so many it can be overwhelming!).

Most people myself included are clueless and can be passive when seeking therapy. Patients usually stick with the first therapist that illicits rapport when there are probably better fits for the patient beyond CBT and talk therapy.

Thank you!
