How do you go about finding the right therapist? I’m going through them all on several websites but all of the ones I resonated with are not accepting new patients. Also, which gender should I go for? (I’m a gay woman and always defaulted to female therapist, but maybe it’s good to have a male perspective on things?)

Ask the ones who are no longer taking patients for referrals. They should each give you about 3 names

How much does it cost and how do you pay for it? Meaning insurance, 3rd party plans etc? I have a college student in school and paying out of state tuition for them and another in highschool. Hence, options that make it less expensive is what I’m trying to get to!!

While your therapist does not have to be similar to you in terms of gender/orientation etc there is something nice about talking to someone that understands your perspective.

Check out Zencare if you haven’t yet if you live in one of the cities they cover - its how I found mine and it has a great search function to find therapists who fit your needs. I think it also shows you which ones are accepting new patients as you search

Blunt, elephant in room ? for recruiters/CCOs/ECDs: when u get outreach from someone u know/assume is 40+ straight white male, is that sort of a non-starter now? Please know this isn’t griping because inequality absolutely must be fixed...it’s more just curiosity. Because seems almost moot for older whiteys to apply when agencies are (SHOULD be) actively trying to hire racial/gender/sexual orientation diversity now more than ever. “Advertising White Dudes: We Had a Good (Selfish) Run!”™️ 😁

Contriversal topic but here it goes: I’m in-house a F100 and happen to be a white male (although I do have a fairly severe “invisible” disability). Progression to a management level attorney is quite difficult despite the relatively large. Recently the company announced DEI initiative that includes targets and goals for women and people of color (not applicable to other minorities). I absolutely want more diversity in our law department - I’ve taken steps to help ensure that there is - but…

Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!

Why does everyone preach DEI but fail to recognize that people also grow up in different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes? Increasing diversity in these elite firms also means that you will be at team dinners with people who didn’t grow up with well off parents and experiences living in the finer things in life or enjoying the same things outside of work - but not all teams are cognizant of that in their social conversations and can unintentionally make those ppl feel different. End rant.
