I tend to think it's a good idea to cut your losses early if it doesn't seem like a good fit. While it's true that some therapists can grow on you, even if they don't make an immediate good impression, it's also true that it's all too easy to get enmeshed in a less than ideal therapeutic relationship when a better fit would be much more helpful. Don't be afraid to "interview" a few therapists.

That being said, my immediate impression of my therapist was not particularly positive, and I mainly continued to see him because I had had a less than warm welcome when calling therapists out of the phone book. It turned out to be a very good match in the long run.
