If you're looking for an "excellent therapist" you may want to try the
American Board of Professional Psychology.  They have clinical
psychologists who have received additional accreditation in their
field.  They are obviously not psychiatrists, but will likely be able
to refer you to qualified psychiatrists they work with.  The truth is
that few psychiatrists actually do much therapy these days.  Here's a
link for the certified clinical psychologists in Illinois.  You could
compare this list with the psychologists that are included in your
particular health plan.  Good luck.
