Thank you for responding to my post, and I really appreciate your, I guess, dissenting opinion. There is obviously not a simple answer, and it is good to consider both sides. I am not entirely comfortable, either, with the concept of transference. I am definitely not comfortable in discussing my feelings with him.

I also understand the sort of catch-22 you see. While I am not comfortable about having these feelings about him, I also know that I probably would have stopped going after I finished my mandatory counseling if I not for my strong attachment to him. All the other psychologists and psychiatrists I've been to have been female (with the exception of one I saw only once for some testing), and I did not like them, I did not like the counseling, and I went only because I was forced to. I did not feel comfortable with them, and I did not want to be open with them. I guess part of my motivation in even trying is because I like (love?) my psychologist and I want to make him "happy" or... whatever. I know that if I weren't seeing him, I would just quit altogether. I don't know whether that would be a good thing or a bad thing.
