Good for you for raising the subject in the first place. The therapy is for you,
not for the doctor, and you need to feel like you're getting what you need out of it, otherwise what's the point. Not to mention you're paying for it. If you don't click with a doctor, find a new one. And you did.
The behaviour and attitude of the female doctor was simply unprofessional - case closed. I can definitely understand why you would feel bad during and after that situation -- no doubt I would have been quite upset too. (Or I would have had the rare gonads I sometimes get in anger-inducing situations like that and called her out on her bad behaviour.) But you can at least rest easy knowing that you tried to handle it in a professional manner, and she completely dropped the ball.
If anything, this just goes to show that "professionals" like this are no different than all the other ****ed up human beings out there. She apparently has her own issues to deal with.
Good luck with your new doctor. Hopefully you are as comfortable with him as you think you will be. I'm also curious to know if she responds to your email.
But I would rather be alone,
Than pretend I feel alright
