For many people, choosing a therapist is simple: they go to the first person who comes up on an internet search, or whatever therapist is available soonest at the practice closest to home - or even worse - we base it solely on the type of insurance that we have and is accepted at the practice. This is hard. Sometimes, this works, and it's a great match. Typically, this is happenstance, and I don't know many people who would truly prefer to leave their story in the hands of someone who they just "lucked out" getting.
