steelmagnolia25,

Sorry I'm so late to respond. Your post hit a little too close to home for me this week. I struggle A LOT with my feelings about my Therapist. They aren't romantic but they are intense, needy, little kid feelings. I go through periods of being petrified that eventually he will be overwhelmed and terminate.

I'm sorry this has happened to you. It must be unbelievable painful. I agree with the advise of others here -- having help to process all these conflicting, hurt feelings seems important. You can't blame yourself. It just seems that some Therapist believe that termination is the only answer. I guess the way malpractice suits have gone and the cost of insurance makes male therapist especially gun shy. We all lose because of this.

One last thought. Asking for another therapist from the same group may not be the best idea. She might have a difficult time since it is a colleague and you might run into him in the building.
