Check the archives. I cannot possibly recommend any specific shrink, in part because it is impossible for anyone to keep track of who and where they are, what they do and whether they're any good at it. You are wise, thouh to see a psychologist, as some simple CBT / Behaviour Therapy could help you become usefully less anxious and fell more in cotnrol in driving ; whereas anti-anxiety drugs are sedative and impair your reaction times and driving skills, so be cautious about such meds
