The therapist I tried out today was not a good fit. She seemed like a nice enough person, but didn’t really seem to “get” me: she asked mostly the wrong questions, needed a lot of clarification (more than I’ve had to give ANYBODY when telling my story), and she wasn’t very warm. Basically, there was no chemistry. It felt hard to have a conversation with her, and not in the “it’s therapy and you talk about difficult stuff” way, more in the “what do I say next?” way.
Onward and upward. I’ll be trying therapists that come with recommendations now. Good thing I know several people in therapy, huh?
UPDATE: I just got a call about that other job and I have an interview next Tuesday, the 19th.
