"As you scroll through all these listings you know you’re looking for something—and it probably isn’t just someone to help you sort things out or someone who practices a certain way or works with a particular kind of person—there’s definitely something else. But what is this illusive “something”? I’m convinced it’s a feeling of connection or rather the potential for connecting, finding a fit in other words, or as the academics term it, rapport. Which interestingly is by all accounts the single best predictor for success in therapy: how well people relate to their therapists. "
