Choosing to see a counselor or psychotherapist is a very personal choice. In doing so, you want to ensure that you find someone who is a good fit for you. It is very common to meet with someone before beginning treatment in order to ensure that this is someone you “click” with.
When looking for a new therapist, it is always a good idea to ask for a referral from someone you trust. Examples could be family members, friends, your doctor or nurse practitioner, guidance counselor, or employee assistance program at work.
