Be willing to give your relationship with your therapist time to grow. You may feel comfortable right from the start, or it may take a few sessions to feel like you can trust and open up.
However, if you have given it time and you still are not able to communicate freely and openly then you may need to find another counselor. We don’t all work the same and we realize you need to find the right “fit” for you. Just let your counselor know if at all possible before you leave without saying a word and she or he will help you locate another provider who might work better for you.
