I had an initial intake appointment tonight with a new therapist. Plusses so far: she seems quite competent and friendly, is experienced, and we had a good rapport. The downside: her office is in a drug treatment program. She sees her private clients at her current job setting. It's not really a big deal, as I go after hours. I have to get over the idea that people may see me walking into her clinic waiting room. Good thing I don't give a shit about people's misconceptions about mental health and those who are consumers.
