This is a great article outlining some important questions you should ask a new therapist when you are trying to choose one. And, no, I don’t think it’s great just because I’m quoted! But that did help bring it to my attention, so I can share it with you.
I think one of the best takeaways from the article is this:
You’ll want to know that the therapist is capable of addressing the reason why you came to therapy in the first place.
So many people are uncomfortable asking the therapist questions, but it is really important to know if you are going to be able to work with this person. After all, you will be making yourself vulnerable and spending a lot of money to get this person’s help, so you might as well get to know them before you commit.
