What insurance, if any, do you take? Do you offer a sliding scale? What are your regular fees?
What type of license do you have?
M.D. (psychiatrist), Ph.D. (psychologist), LPC (licensed professional counselor), LCSW (licensed clinical social worker) MFT (marriage and family therapist). There are others but these are the primary ones.
What area(s) of expertise do you specialize in?
For example, trauma, grief and loss, reproductive mental health (covering from infertility issues, miscarriage, perinatal loss, stillbirth, postpartum depression, adoption) are all relevant to postpartum depression, miscarriage, infant death and stillbirth.
Would you collaborate with my ob/gyn, psychiatrist, and/or other members of my medical team?
How long have you been in practice?
How would you describe your therapeutic approach/treatment modalities?
For example, for trauma work, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Response) or CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) can be very effective. For grief and loss, psychodynamic therapy is considered valuable. There are a wide variety of approaches and some clinicians will just say they take an ecclectic approach, utilizing techniques as appropriate to respond to presenting symptoms.
Given what I have told you about me, do you think you can help me?
