Many people seek a therapist of a similar racial or ethnic background. When given a choice, many Middle Eastern people prefer Middle Eastern therapists. Regardless of your reasoning, this preference should be honored whenever possible to maximize your chances of success in therapy.

Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Why Choose a Middle Eastern Therapist?

As a Middle Eastern person, your reason for preferring a Middle Eastern therapist doesn’t need validation. But to give you a bit of additional insight, here are some reasons why choosing a Middle Eastern therapist is a good idea:

  • You may feel closer to your therapist since you both share common ground.
  • The cultural and social struggles of living as a Middle Eastern person are more likely to be recognized by a Middle Eastern therapist than by a therapist of another race.
  • If your therapist is of the same race as you, you may be more likely to open up to them about your mental health.

Not all Middle Eastern therapists will be a good match for you. When selecting a therapist, many other elements besides race need to be taken into consideration. Read this article by Jessica Connolly to learn how to find the right therapist for you.
