Hi @plastics

I've had plenty of therapy but not for the specific reason of helping to make new friends, so I can't answer that question, sorry.

What I wanted to say was, due to my personal experience with therapists and counselors, you have to ask them directly/outright about what you'd like from them. So actually ask them, for example, for a list of ways to help you make new friends, or just ask them literally to help you make new friends. Otherwise they might just sit there listening to your problems and grievances, listening very patiently, very unjudgmentally, but not actually give you any practical advice.
