Speaker,

I started with a new therapist 6 months ago. For the first couple of months it was pretty dreary - talking about people he didn't know, explaining patterns of mine he hadn't hear about. Feeling like he couldn't help me because he didn't know what my story was. UGH.

But I really think it is worth it. One day we really connected. He also does seem to understand me often even when he doesn't have all the details. Sometimes he makes assumptions and I have to correct those. I was with my old therapist for 8 1/2 years - she knew everything. But going to someone new brings a new perspective to things, and sometimes going over the old things yet again does let me see things in a new light.

A new therapist is hard. But if s/he is good, it should be worth it.
