In brief: Counseling center

Will save some time, although you could consult with your physician if you want to go privately and want a referral.
If there are medical issues as well as emotional ones, that might be a reason to consult with your doctor first. Otherwise, the counseling center will get you started in therapy sooner. Good luck and let us know how you do.
