Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
At our counseling center we hire the best counselors and choose specialists in 3-5 areas of counseling so our clients get results. Also, look for a therapist that encourages their child or teen to share what they learned each session so the parents so are in the loop and feel like their students is getting something from counseling. Last, look for a therapist that will give you a plan after the first or sometimes the seconds session along with homework!
