> I'd find somebody else. Personally, I prefer female shrinks with lots of experience. They're not as ego-driven and hard to work with as male shrinks, and they tend to be more willing to listen to your ideas. Younger shrinks in general tend to be all about the atypicals and their own egos, so avoid them.
I have not noticed much of a gender difference. What I have noticed is that I have a good rapport with those not born in this country, in their 60s or older, and who call themselves psychopharmacologists and not psychiatrists.
I live in the county I live in mainly in order to be able to see this guy at a charity care clinic. (he is a professor at the affiliated university)
I don't know what I'd do without him.
