It's super important to find someone you can have a great connection with, but there are so many factors.

On the one hand, there are logistical things — like narrowing down your options, navigating insurance or lack thereof, finding someone who's actually accepting patients, etc.

On the other, there are more ~personal~ things to worry about — like deciding what makes a good match, dealing with the frustration of the lengthy search, etc.
