Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
One of the most important factors when choosing a therapist is to interview that therapist before committing to their services. Ask questions about their training, background, specialties and other concerns that are important to you. Never settle with a plaque on the wall, a well written bio, or an attractive picture. Working with a therapist is the same process as developing any intimate relationship. Your therapist is someone that you are going to express some of your deepest feeling and thoughts with, make sure that they can relate to your needs and provide solutions that do not compromise your beliefs and morals.
