Finding a therapist that is right for you can be challenging.
According to mentalhealthmatch.com, three things are necessary to think about when deciding if a therapist is right for you.
You should feel safe with your therapist. In order to benefit from services, one should be able to open up and trust their therapist. This can be hard as a neurodivergent individual, as many therapists may not know everything about our conditions.
This goes a long with the last point I just wrote. Your therapist should have necessary education in your type of neurodivergency. A plus would be them being neurodivergent themselves!
It is important that you feel a connection with your therapist. There are a multitude of reasons a connection may not be felt. Regardless of reasoning, you shouldn't stay with a therapist you do not connect with.
Try it out. Give your new therapist a few sessions to see if you connect.
Do your research. Often times therapists have blurbs about themselves on their websites. See if they mention your disorder.
Listen to your gut. Trust your instincts.
Set goals at the first session. Have open communication on what you want to get out of therapy. Reasses after the first month and see if it is working for you.
