To casually and publically refer to those without mental health concerns as "normal" is thoughtless and perpetuates the myth that mental illness is shameful. It's one thing when ill-informed family members remain bound by a stigma; it's another when presumably educated folks working in our legal system remain equally bound.
After more than 15 years of seeing a variety of therapists myself, I've had my share of bad experiences. I've also had amazing, life-altering, not-sure-what-I-would've-done-without-'em therapists. So even if it sounds like you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your "theraprince," the result is definitely worth it.
