Finding someone to help you on your journey through life can often make one scared, nervous, and fearful. It is important you have a trusting relationship with the counselor/therapist you choose. When finding an individual to help you, here are some questions to ask. . .
- What is your training and experience with highly sensitive people, depression, eating disorders, sexual assault, anxiety, relationships, career transitions, self injury – the area(s) you are seeking help with at the time?
- Are you licensed or registered in the state of Colorado? Have you ever had any disciplinary action against you?
- How would you describe your treatment style?
- How much do you charge? Do you charge for phone calls, or emails outside of sessions? In case of an emergency, do you have an on-call policy? What is your on-call or emergency policy?
- What is your availability?
Remember, therapy is about you receiving the help you need. You can always ask questions of your counselor/therapist at any given time.
