Choosing a Counselor

When looking for a counselor, you will be inundated with degrees, licensing and certifications. All these are extremely important in determining the validity and expertise of the counselor. But a degree does not make the counselor right for you. Remember that psychotherapy is aimed at effecting permanent change in your life. While licensing and certifications mean that the counselor is allowed to help you, to be truly effective, you have to find a counselor that empowers you. To do this, the therapist must build a level of trust and confidence with you. You must find a therapist with whom you can build a lasting relationship, in an environment that feels comfortable and safe.

The licensing and certifications should be the beginning of your process. By examining licenses and certifications, you will find a therapist with experience in counseling patients with similar needs to your own.
