A story in the February 7 New York Times Style section highlights the relatively recent phenomenon of therapists gearing their practice to a specialized, and sometimes narrow, demographic, e.g. LGBTQ clients, newly married clients, or those in the tech industry, the last especially prevalent in urban centers such as Silicon Valley and metro Seattle.

The piece concludes, though, with what we in the therapy field have long known, that the crux of successful therapy is the power of the healing relationship between therapist and client.
