You've given her a decent try, and she's not someone you feel you can work productively with. Perhaps it's time to cut your losses and find a therapist who suits you better.

It doesn't matter so much who is right and who is wrong. Different therapists suit different clients. Trying on therapists is a bit like dating. You may need to try a few before you find a good match.

Now that you know your preferences in therapy, you'll have a good base to know what you're looking for in the future. You want someone who is more directive than your current therapist? Who is willing to give you honest feedback? There are a heck of a lot of therapists like that out there. If you were near me, I'd give you biofeedback guy's name.

I can see why you're upset. It's hard to invest significant time and resources in something you don't find helpful. And it's not always easy to tell at first which therapist will be helpful in the long run.

Are you familiar with CBT? It's definitely results oriented. Perhaps you'd find it useful. There are other styles of therapy that also stress active intervention on the part of the therapist.
