To Tyr,

That kind of "honesty" from anyone, but especially a therapist is clueless, cruel and completely inappropriate. Of course no one can actually know the exact pain of another person, but you sure can have a good idea of it! Besides why would someone, especially a professional, invalidate a sexual abuse survivor, male or female, by saying something like that, it's horrible!

On the Male Survivor Home Page there's a link, on the menu click "Find Support" then click "Find A Therapist" and there is a great guide to help in selecting and working with a therapist. It's titled "A Consumers Guide To Therapist Shopping", it contains some good information.

Hope this might help,
