There's a difference between having a degree and therapy style. Maybe I'm wrong, but when I think degree I think "book smarts" not necessarily people skills. If you don't tell her she isn't going to know, you can be tactful about it you don't have to just go in there and start tearing into her out of nowhere. As a future counselor, I would WANT somebody to tell me what I'm doing wrong because I understand that everyone is different and my chosen techniques won't work for every client. The key here though is to tell her what you think WOULD work, and she'll probably ask you that so go in with a general idea. Once you've discussed it with her, if you still don't think it will work for you, try a different therapist and nip issues like this in the bud with the new person.
