In brief: Contact local clinic

Though often your gp who knows you is a good source of referral to specialists such as psychiatrists other sources include local clinics.
Insurance panels, local medical societies, nearly medical center. Some but not all insurance plans require a referral from your gp so double check and good luck.

Many psychiatrists don't require referrals.
What does your insurance company require?
