There are three things that you should ask your therapist before starting therapy with them. Number one, their previous experience treating patients like you. It’s really important to know that your therapist knows how to treat a patient, that is dealing with the things that you are dealing with to education and licensure. This is really important to make sure that the therapist that you are seeing is held by a certain ethical and legal code and is educated about that code. And number three, fees. It’s often uncomfortable to talk about money, especially when you meet someone for the first time, but it’s really important to understand how much therapy is going to cost you, especially because therapy can be pretty expensive.
