Congratulations on making the important decision to begin therapy. Now is the perfect time to consider your needs and priorities, conduct some research, ask questions and pay attention to the responses (and to your own). As you begin your mental health journey, we strive to help you navigate health benefits and create an affirming, responsive “getting started” process – including connecting you with an IntraSpectrum Counseling therapist who will be a good match for you, as efficiently as possible. Each of our therapists is educated and trained, and has experience working with LGBTQ+ clients, but we recognize it’s also important to find someone who is a good match, personally. Feeling comfortable and being able to connect with your therapist on a personal level can increase the likelihood that you’ll reach your goals for therapy together.
Below we offer some tried & true strategies to consider, for finding a therapist who is right for you.
