Let me add something important here. While I've been going through this experience with my male pdoc, I've always had a female--warm, loving and supporting psychodynamic therapist to help me navigate these sharky waters. I never would have made it without her to support me.

It has been suggested to me many times on this board that a male therapist who practices psychodynamic therapy might have been a better choice for me so I wouldn't have had to experience the pain I've gone through, and they may be right, but I've made it through with my pdoc to a much better place.

So think of the type of therapy you think would work best, and the type of person you want to work with. I don't recommend two therapists at the same time because it gets very complicated. It has worked for me, only because I think I was so determined to make it work, despite the pain and anguish it has caused. I'm strong enough now to know that I can walk out that door on my own terms now if I think working with this pdoc is damaging to my self-esteem or my recovery.

I made it harder on myself than it needed to be, but the progress has been fast and furious, and that's what I really wanted. I had no idea it would turn out this way, but it has worked for me.
