      @Jazzyj1448 good. Took me awhile before I learned to start sticking up for myself. Hugs hope all works out well

      Do NOT be afraid to change counselors. Not everyone will be a good fit for each individual, and don't feel expected to spill your guts the first few sessions. It took me about 6-7 months to truly feel comfortable sharing deep things with my therapist.

      Take your time to find the right fit for your. If you want only female stand your ground. I feel any therapist should also have a therapist. Also if you have a specific thing find therapist that specializes in it. Good luck 💕
