Does anyone have any suggestion on if counselors should be from the same cultural background as their clients?

i think i would agree, it makes it easier for the parties to communicate.
but i may be wrong. sometimes, a person may not like his own culture and thus, or may not be able to trust their culture. can work both ways, depending on the client. thats what i think. i'm not expert though, i'm just an normal internet user using these boards.

I think it's about counseling with someone with a background that is similar enough that you can trust them. For some, culture or race may not be a comfortable place to be different in a counseling situation. For others, which gender you are might be the issue. For me myself, I'd be much more comfortable talking to a female from a different culture than talking to a male from my same ethnic background in a counseling situation. But that's my comfort and trust zone. It probably varies for everyone.
