"It's a total crap shoot trying to choose a therapist, and you've been through this before. Maybe you have come close to making that first call several times but are filled with doubts and questions. You've gone to therapy but felt like the counselor didn't get you, maybe you're also a therapist searching for the right fit, or you have no idea how it could possibly help. Even worse, you're afraid of finding out something actually IS wrong with you. Perhaps you've also been questioning yourself, believing you shouldn't feel the way you, or you've been called "too sensitive.""

"An athlete's life is different from other people. Does the stress of being an athlete sometimes makes you feel overwhelmed and alone? Are you expected to be almost perfect and fear you won't measure up and will get ridiculed? Are you afraid of not being "good enough" and coaches losing confidence in you? Does worrying about your performance leave you feeling overanxious? Do you have moments of overwhelming sadness but are afraid to let anyone know because you're an athlete and athletes can't show any signs of weakness, all the while feeling stressed out with no one to go to?"
