Finding a therapist

Postby sarahwpen » Thu Aug 22, 2019 2:40 pm


I have been through some rough things. I've tried several times to find a good therapist. The last 2 that I went to resulted in .... well. I am not really sure how to say it. I left feeling very angry and betrayed. It wasn't helpful. I have read several good books and I've considered online therapy, but I am very hesitant about that.

I feel like I need a human being to work through some things with, so that I can figure out how to sort it all out and move forward and get unstuck from the loop I seem to be in. But finding someone who is trustworthy is an overwhelming and terrifying prospect for me.

Do any of you have an suggestions on how I might go about beginning this process without totally losing my grip? Any alternatives perhaps to help deal with issues if I can't bring myself to get out there and find a person?
