Find White therapists Therapists & Counselors in Glen Ellyn, IL.

 

People often choose a therapist of the same race. As a White person, you may have much more in common with a White therapist than a non-White therapist. When you have a choice, working with a therapist who meets your preferences, including race, is essential for the best therapy experience.

Whether you are located in downtown Glen Ellyn, the suburbs of Glen Ellyn, other nearby places such as Wheaton, Lombard, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Reasons to Choose a Therapist Who is White

It can be challenging for non-White people to understand the things that White people experience every day, and this can lead to inadequate care in some cases. Here are a few other reasons to choose a therapist with a similar racial background:

  • You may be more receptive to therapy and more willing to share your feelings and innermost thoughts if you feel connected to your therapist.
  • Therapists of other races may not be able to pinpoint issues specific to White people.
  • You may find that a therapist of the same race shows more compassion, especially if they have experienced similar things in their own life.
  • Due to racial tension, you may only feel comfortable sharing your struggles with someone of a similar race.
  • You may want a safe space to explore White privilege and how you can unlearn unconscious racism.

Besides race, there are other factors you should consider when looking for a therapist. To learn more, read this article by licensed therapist Justine Soto to discover some considerations when selecting a therapist.
