This is such a good article, Lucy! Thank you for sharing your journey with us. It took me until I was in my 30s to realize I don't have to stick it out with a therapist--if we're not a good match, so be it. I'll move on and keep searching.
I found a wonderful therapist and saw her from 2011 to when she retired in 2019. I'm back on the search now and have been wary of online therapy. As Covid-19 continues, I'm beginning to wonder if it may be a good fit for me.
Off to read your next article about this! :)
