> I've been in therapy for 3 1/2 years with two different men. I found my first therapist to be fairly effective, but I'm starting to feel the therapist I see now (also my M.D./PDoc) is just a waste of my time. I'm comtemplating switching to another therapist. My question is, does anyone think a man who has been stuffing his feelings in his entire life (me) might be better off seeing a female therapist? I've begun to notice with my current that I still hold back, feeling like I can't open up in front of a man. My family members have mentioned to me that perhaps I should see a woman instead. They know my situation is driven by apprehension to deal with painful feelings that I can't come to grips with. I'm beginning to agree with them...
