General Tips on Finding a Counseling Professional
If using insurance, it's a good idea to see who is in-network with your plan by calling your insurance company
Look through the profiles of counseling professionals to learn more about them, via their website or profile links above. That will help you get a feel for their helping style and specialties (i.e. food allergies, anxiety, family).
When you find someone you'd like to make an appointment with, follow the steps outlined on their website or profile. Many counseling professionals offer a brief initial phone call for no charge to help clients determine if they'd like to make an appointment. This would be a good time to ask any questions you may have, such as their knowledge of food allergies, their counseling approaches, or any other information you'd like to know.
If you can't find a food allergy-knowledgeable counseling providers via the FAC Directory, look for a licensed clinical behavioral healthcare provider that understands chronic illness, anxiety, kids, family, etc.
