antigua3, please be careful about keeping someone for a challenge or any other reason if they aren't qualified to do the work you need. I kept my last pdoc/therapist, and it was a very big mistake.

I went to see my last pdoc/therapist when I started to get depressed over all the physical things going wrong with me at the time. His specialty area was/is consultation-liason psychiatry, meaning he works with people with chronic physical problems and/or health issues that are terminal and with persons in these categories who also have a serious mental illness like depresson or schizophrenia or bipolar, etc. So, he was fine for that. There is no way he should have tried to work with me on the abuse issues. He would get angry with me when I got angry with him, and it got to the point that he thought I should find someone else, and I should have. But no; I was going to make it work. Bull. I ended up stuffing my anger and getting more depressed, and as I have said before, I did the damn ECT for him as a gift. How sick is that. When I was aware of the brain damage and complained, he got angry with me again, and then I knew I had to get the hell out of there and now have a kind, caring male therapist who can help me with my abuse and male issues in a way that I need. NO one needs an A-hole

I agree with twinleaf. And, from what you describe, I can see why he would be a challenge to you. He sounds a lot like your father in his demeanor. Sh*t. Please be careful. I would not wish what happened to me with my last pdoc/therapist. I lost two years plus a good deal of short term memory.
