If you’ve never been to therapy before, you may have a lot of questions about how this whole thing is going to work. Asking your therapist questions is highly recommended, and a completely normal way to help you determine if your therapist is the right fit. Your therapist should be more than willing to answer questions regarding anything from logistics to boundaries, and everything in between. If you think of questions before or during your therapy session, it may be beneficial to write them down so you feel as though you are well equipped when you visit your therapist. If you are unsure of what questions to ask, here are some that may be helpful:
