  1. This is interesting to think about. I’ve been helping my 17 year old daughter get help for anxiety and she has had a couple of counselors that were not a good fit for her. I have no idea what she is looking for and she does not have enough experience to articulate clearly exactly what is not working. And intake appointments are more expensive than the continuing therapy appointments. My first thought was that she is hearing something from the counselor that she does not want to hear or act on OR that she has not been able to adequately explain to these counselors exactly how anxiety is limiting her life. Once she decides it’s not a good fit, that’s it and she will not return.

  2. In my Practice, a post-therapy questionnaire is issued to every client.
    I know why my clients end therapy, because they tell me.
    They end therapy because they got what they came for.
