How do you know if a therapist is a good fit for you?

Please read the following article for more information:

When considering several candidates, ask yourself these questions:

  • Does it seem like the therapist truly cares about you and your problems?
  • Do you feel as if the therapist understands you?
  • Does the therapist accept you for who you are?
  • Would you feel comfortable revealing personal information to this individual?
  • Do you feel as if you can be honest and open with this therapist?
  • That you don’t have to hide or pretend you’re someone that you’re not?
  • Is the therapist a good listener?
  • Do they listen without interrupting, criticizing, or judging?
  • Do they pick up on your feelings and listen to what you’re really saying? Make you feel heard?
