help finding a new therapist.

In the last few months my therapist passed away very quickly, i was not aware at all that she was sick in any way. She helped me out a lot and im kind of having a hard time finding someone else just because her death impacted me a lot. I have a hard time trusting people and i just felt like she really could understand what i was going through. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Can you give me any input?

Changing therapists is always a very hard thing to do, esp with the bond and trust that has been built with the original one. My suggestion is to try out a few different ones and have an initial "consult" with them and you'll know and feel what's right.

That's unfortunate. I remember long time ago I was starting to see a therapist who was brilliant, got to the root of my problems, my shame, yet didn't act superior or judgemental; all in one session. Then the next week I expected my appointment, I heard he had died in an accident where his car had went off a cliff.. I hadn't been lucky enough to find a therapist like that since and gave up on it eventually.
