When you no longer find therapy useful, or feel that your therapist isn’t a good fit for you, what do you do? Most people don’t make another appointment or they no-show.

Sometimes people start thinking about if they did the right thing. How do you handle not needing or wanting to go to therapy anymore without it weighing on you?
Here’s something that not a lot of people know: A good therapist is totally okay with you saying that therapy isn’t working for you or that you no longer need therapy.
