I want to get therapy for my depression and problems socializing. I heard a lot of bad stories about them, so I have some questions. Do therapists help you, are they worth my time? How are therapists in terms of confidentiality (in east-coast U.S.)? I haven't had an SA but I have had the thoughts and I don't want ANYONE to hear without my permission - also I'm still in highschool, am I at higher risk of getting betrayed? I have to tell my parents something so they take me to therapy, but I don't want to talk to them about my feelings I prefer a professional who I don't know personally. How much do you tell family members, how do they react? How do you go about choosing the right therapist? Yeah basically any info about therapists, good or bad, will help. Thanks :smile:.
