I haven't had quite the same experience, but I re-entered therapy with a new doctor after a long-term therapy with someone else. Obviously, some of the same issues come up. I found that talking to the new dr about what had been good and bad about the previous experience was very helpful, helped us to establish our relationship and me to learn about what different things he can offer me, and so on. If the switch was unavoidable, then maybe it would help to think of this first phase not as "educating" your dr but forming a new relationship with him/her. As you explore what that relationship will be like, you'll most likely get a good feeling for whether that relationship is right for you. Good luck!

therapy with the same doctor,
> I have had to switch psychiatrist. I'm finding it overwhelming to "educate" someone new to my personal and medical history. How do I know the 'new' doctor is the right match for me? How do I not feel like I am repeating myself - it is exhausting emotionally and financially. I feel like I'm lost. thanks
