I’m Searching For A Therapist Who Will Accept Me And See My Struggles
Finding a therapist can feel like a full-time job. It can be so difficult to find that right person, especially if you’re queer, trans, or non-binary and are searching for someone who truly understands your experience.
Lisbeth speaks about their personal story and why #WeNeedAButton:
“I have immigrant parents, so when I went to therapy as a kid I’d have to translate constantly between my mom and the therapist. That kind of traumatized me. I didn’t want to go back to therapy at all for a while. And now that I’m trying to do it on my own, it’s so much more overwhelming.
I’ve been trying to find a therapist for the longest, and it’s been really hard because aside from trying to find everything that I’m looking for, I also have to try to find someone who will accept me and see my struggles. I’ve found many therapists to be extremely judgmental. Or they blame me for my problems instead of helping me. It’s been very detrimental and triggering to see so many different people, and to have had no luck.”
