Q: I have been seeing a counselor for months now on a weekly basis but I don't think it's a good fit. Should I bring it up? How can I find a good counselor?
A: If you don’t feel comfortable with your therapist, you have every right to bring it up or to find another provider. I tell my own clients that if they don't feel like things are progressing, to let me know. I also don't get offended if I'm not the right fit for everyone. We all have different personalities and backgrounds so we won't be comfortable with just anyone.
