HOW TO CHOOSE A THERAPIST

Don't be afraid to shop around for a good match between you and your therapist. No matter how well trained the therapist is, if you are not at ease with him or her or you are unwilling to talk about personal problems or feelings, you will be wasting your money. Trust your intuition.

Take recommendations from friends and family only if they have shown significant and visible changes in behavior and attitudes during their therapy.
