What an awful situation, wanting to work on something but also having those fires you talk about. I've done DBT with a couple of clients, and it is really hard to do the diary cards, interventions, and skills training in just one session. Let alone combine it with another type of therapy.

On the plus side, it sounds like things with your T have settled down as far as the relationship goes. Does it feel that way to you, too, barring this conflict over having enough time?

And the fact that your T wants to work on skill building and DBT is a sign that she feels you CAN handle at least some of the fires yourself between sessions. Maybe just the smoldering ones for a start? It sounds like you are making good progress.

I hope you can feel that you are, too.

Take care,
