First meeting with a therapist.
What’s that like? Definitely not in an offensive way, but I’d like to have someone who is the same race as I am because I feel like she will understand me better. I don’t believe that race doesn’t matter, honestly, I’m sure whoever the person will be, he or she has the same human tendencies as anybody else. Is there a way to request someone with a specific gender, a female therapist? My parents and I have decided that it’d be best for me to go see a counselor after years of running around, but now that I’m here I’m a little afraid that maybe she won’t understand me either? What if she thinks I’m crazy? Or what if she gets bored becuase I’m not as crazy as her other patients or she is irritated with me because I don’t have “real” problems?
