Psychotherapy, Marriage & Family Therapy, Counselling
I'm a licensed professional.
First talk to the therapist on the phone and ask whatever questions you want. If you re satisfied with the answers, the next step is to experience the therapist once to see if it is a good fit. You will know how you feel in that session, and trust your feelings.
I honestly believe that vulnerability is a strength. No one who comes to therapy is "weak". An honest expression of pain, anxiety or depression deserves to be acknowledged and understood. And we know that the person also has a lot of strength to be willing to grow and change in a therapy process.
