What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
I would encourage you to think about what your needs are before meeting with a therapist. Think about what you need your therapist to do and how they can best help you with obtaining your therapy goals. This allows you to be the captain of your treatment plan and it assists you in determining if your therapist is a good fit for you.
