7 Ways to Approach Therapy Like a New Relationship

Let me be very clear: Therapy is not a replacement for friendship or relationships, because it is one-sided in that the entire relationship focuses on you without a glimpse into the therapist's life. However, with that said, your experience with your therapist is as helpful and meaningful as you prioritize and work for it to be, like any relationship. If we approach our relationships with therapists like other relationships -- new, potentially-satisfying, open -- we can stop looking at therapy as this intimidating, ... Read more
