Please don't take this the wrong way. But is it possible that you are overly focused on the negative when it comes to a new therapist? That is, since she is not your old therapist, she cannot be any good. I know it is hard. But your new therapist will never be the old one. All you can do is make the most of the situation that you have. Instead of focusing on everything wrong that this therapist does, perhaps there are some good things about her that are different from your old therapist. Your old therapist was not perfect although it may have seemed that way. The new therapist will not be perfect either. But you don't make it worse on yourself by focusing on the negative.

And remember, therapists are people too. They will from time to time, disappoint patients, hurt patients, not respond properly or respond poorly. If it happens all the time, that is one thing. But part of therapy is learning how to strengthen interpersonal skills. No one in your life is perfect (well at least not in mine). If you learn to manage the relationship with your therapist and actually find value in it, you can transfer those skills to the outside and apply to other relationships.
