What do I look for in a therapist?
“Fit” is important any time you begin working with a new therapist. If you do not feel comfortable speaking frankly with your care provider in the first few sessions, the fit may not be right for you. If, however, you begin to feel uncomfortable after a period of working well with your care provider, it is important to name and address this discomfort directly. Doing so is likely to create opportunities to identify and change patterns in how you manage emotions within relationships.
