I thought there was a pinned list of mental health professionals here. Both analysts and psychiatrists. If there is not one, care to start one? I need to start back after 10 years, and my favorites have retired. I'm thinking more Dominique Reymond from Irma Vep, and less Tina Fey from Kimmy Schmidt. Believes in meds as well as hypnosis. ADHD to sexual trauma. Do they exist?


Is there a reliable list of college rankings? I didn’t grow up here and have no clue. Have a daughter in HS and trying to make sense of it.

Someone said recently one of their kids was going to Wisconsin but the other got into Michigan (or was it Indiana?) and that was a better result but to me it’s all new. How do I make sense of it all?
