Good Morning Christi,
I agree that it does take the right therapist and the right patient to make a good connection. I had 2 therapists that I really worked well with and the third one was much like you described......... She would just ask me how my week was and what was upsetting me leaving me to flounder and try to think of something to say. I did not feel her style did me any justice as I always came away feeling like I had to come up with a " good response" for my next session or I was failing Therapy 101.
Do not hesitate to seek out a different therapist and ask going in what kind of therapy this person practices. You will want to know your therapists treatment philosophy and what are their treatment methods? You may not be at all familiar with this topic but if the therapist seems a rigid adherent to one philosophy or treatment, this is a warning signal. In general, if the therapist is a psychoanalyst you will spend a long time in therapy but if she is a cognitive and/or behavioral therapist, the therapy will be relatively short and time limited.
I hope this helps you and please know I am here for you.
