Find therapists and psychiatrists for your patients here.

My characters are always open to patients, so just let me know if you want one of your patients to start seeing one of my doctors.

My therapists are also always open to patients as well.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Can a patient have more than one therapist?

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments I just got one character up for approval so far and I'm torn between two Dr.'s for her. Unless you think one might be better than the other for her I'm thinking it might do her some good to see both. I have no doubt she needs plenty of therapy anyway. lol! I'm going to get to work on my second character now but I think I know which Dr. I want for him. XD

Cool! I think seeing both doctors is a pretty good option for her. I'm not sure if one would be better than the other.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Sounds good! Thank you. I'm hoping I'm making good therapist choices for my characters. Please if either of you have any suggestions feel free. I just made a new character called Brion, and I'm not entirely sure who he should see either. Haha!

the_rabid_snail | 166 comments Mod
You can always switch therapists too if you try one out and they're not the best fit.
Hmm... I don't know Crabby's therapists as well, so I'm not sure which of them to recommend. She should be on this thread in a sec.

For Brion, out of my people, Hayley is pretty good with kids, and I could see Marshall and him maybe getting on. I think Callahan is a bit too serious for him, and I think Sabine does a little better with older people since she tends to blab a lot of random, intellectual nonsense that young kids might not understand. But that’s just my recommendation; obviously you know him much better than me.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments @Snail, good to know. ;)

@Crabby, I'm thinking maybe Marshall since I kind of picture Brion getting along better with a male therapist. Since he's around mainly males and looks up to them more. :)
Now I just need to figure out a good therapist for my last character that I just posted. Thinking Hayley, just don't want to overburden her with patients. XD

I think Marsh is probably the best choice for Brion out of my therapists then. As for Lienna, I can see her and Hayley getting on. I don’t think she’ll be overburdened - she loves her job and I love rping with her since she keeps everyone in line lol, so it’s no problem.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Alright, Marsh it is then for Brion. Poor Marsh. ;) I guess my only worry with Hayley is that since she has lots of other patients who are likely more vocal, Lien would be spending more time studying their craziness than talking about herself at all. haha! The same can only slightly be said for Sovay who will instead be withdrawing deeper into herself if there is a big crowd. XD

Well, sessions are one on one; we just create more offices for therapists who have more than one active patient. Hayley is good at going step by step, I think, so she should be able to get some amount of information out of them. Hopefully as they warm up to each other, they’ll be able to share more.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Gotcha! Sounds good then. Hayley and Lien.
I've been debating. I know it's Snail's character but I'm trying to decide if I should have Sovay see Hayley or Mary Thatcher, since the character does have some powers. I'm trying to limit her to just two therapists, keeping Rowan Darkwoode. What do you think? Who might be able to help her most? Since I consider her the most challenging out of the four characters I have.

On the basis of magic alone, Mairead would better be able to help her since she is experienced in helping others control their gifts. She might even be able to help Sovay in developing hers. Rowan can help with this too, but Mairead might be somewhat more effective in that regard.
In terms of general approach, Mairead tends to play the long game with most patients, which would probably be a good method for Sovay in terms of breaking her out of her shell. There wouldn't be any big shocks or surprises, and Mary would start her off with small things and then work up to something a bit more challenging.
Personally, I think Mairead would be a better fit because she has a gentler nature. Hayley is a good therapist in her own right, but she does tend to give people reality checks at times that may push Sovay further into her shell given how sensitive she is.

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Sounds like a good call and a better fit for the character. So Mairead and Rowan it is for Sovay. Thank you for your help! :) Also means I get to see a bunch of different therapists at work since each character has a different one. Yay!

Okay! We usually try to match doctors with patients by the therapist’s specialty (if any), and by which of their personalities would fit best for the patient. Has your character been finished yet?

Well, here’s pretty much the place. Sorry I’m a bit slow, I’m doing a lot of multi-tasking right now.

The best place to start is by briefly reading through the therapists on the Finished Therapists and Psychiatrists page. If there’s one you think your character will particularly get along with, that’s always a good option. If you’re still unsure after that, once you finish your character Snail or I can read it over and recommend one we think will best fit him or her.

Kylie ~ Pirate Queen Sura Rose (pirate_queen) | 14 comments I need a therapist/psychiatrist for Sura. I've looked through them but I'm not really sure who would be good for her. Ideas?

message 22: by Kylie ~ (new)

Kylie ~ Pirate Queen Sura Rose (pirate_queen) | 14 comments Let me look her over again. ;)

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments Actually ignore my first comment. I got the therapist wrong. I actually meant Ash since that's Adrian's therapist. XD

message 24: by Kylie ~ (new)

Kylie ~ Pirate Queen Sura Rose (pirate_queen) | 14 comments I was wondering. lol! Having it be Ash would be funny, plus she already knows Adrian. XD What do you think, Snail? :)

I'm good with that!
Sorry for going MIA, everyone. I've been working long hours all weekend and just have been utterly exhausted by the time I get home to my computer. I'll be on tonight for a while longer, and I'll be on the rest of this week too.

Garrison Kelly (cybador) You don't owe us an apology, Snail. Real life gets in the way of even the most brilliant projects. You are forgiven. :)

Thanks, guys! You are all so awesome!

Anna N.~God, Keep My Head Above Water (illyria18) | 84 comments It's always good to see you Snail. We understand that life gets crazy more often than not. Take whatever time you need. :)

message 29: by Kylie ~ (new)

Kylie ~ Pirate Queen Sura Rose (pirate_queen) | 14 comments It's alright, Snail! I definitely understand being busy with how crazy my life can be. :)

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} I am waiting for a character approval, then will be looking for a doctor!! :P

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} Tobias Mitchell Roberts! AKA Toby! He still needs to be approved, but do you have any open doctors that could help him?

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} Let me know what you think! I know he's more on the criminal side but secretly Toby doesn't want to be a criminal. He just needs to realize that.

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} Aww!! Thank you!! So all we need to do is wait for his approval?

BTW I really like Cornet, too!

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} :D Okay!
I'm really new to this group so where would we roleplay once he is approved?

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} I'm heading to bed now. Night!

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} Maybe his office? Since that's at the main building where Toby might be staying while he gets treatment? I can ask for a room for him as well.

Anna {Follow me for reviews!} I'm EXCITED!! 😁
