"Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. If their response does not increase your comfort, find another therapist. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender."

As we get older and become more successful, it becomes harder to "figure things out", while also staying true to ourselves.
