Hey! In my experience, there are a number of not-so good and downright bad shrinks out there. Somehow, though, it seems that women get the short end of the stick. I'm a guy, and I've had experiences with shrinks over-medicating and having obvious problems with me being "different" (one shrink wrote that a sign of my "disorder" was my love of vintage clothes and shaggy hair. He was a conservative, old-school type). But my female friends have had it rough...when one of my friends finally got up the courage to tell her shrink that she had been molested repeatedly as a child by a neighbor, her shrink then saw ALL her problems as resulting from this abuse. This wasn't helful; it basically harmed her by defining her ONLY by her experience of abuse. Male shrinks in general seem to have more ego issues than female ones, or maybe the female shrinks also have ego issues but the male ones have more tact. Who knows.
