How do you know if you have the right therapist?   First you must do your homework regarding what your needs are. Once you determine what your needs are you can narrow your search down to gender, age, background, what they specialize in.  Once you have that information you want to choose a few therapist to interview to get a feel of their communication style and if you feel safe with the therapist.  Sometimes you may have to meet with several therapist  before making a decision.  The key is you feel emotionally and physically safe.
