It's a strange, emotionally laden relationship. I suppose how we react to it depends more on our ways of dealing with the world than it does with the sex or attractiveness of the therapist. I tend to relate as a little girl, so I turn my therapists into providers of safety, mother figures. If someone's tendency is the common and perfectly natural one of sexualizing or romanticizing intimacy, then I suppose that a therapeutic relationship would bring that out.

If you've read many posts on this board, you've probably seen the book "In Session" recommended. I can't praise it highly enough.

And I'm glad you have a therapist with the sensitivity and professional training to handle it well. And congratulations to you for having the courage to bring it up!!
