You said this: "Having had a very charismatic and dynamic father who had a psychotic break when I was 15 and never fully recovered, the situation of a male authority figure lecturing was already ripe with emotional and erotic possibility to me, and the acceptance of an authority figure seemed to promise something very symbolic. At the same time, I was ready to hate them and take them on for everything they said that didn't seem exactly right to me. And I always half-expected them to go crazy and turn on me. "

Are you sure you're not me? My father had a traumatic breakdown when I was 18 that left him hospitalized and on electric shock therapy. He was and still is, extremely charismatic, loud, outspoken, unafraid and unintimidated and funny and smart and very well educated ... and your feelings, the way you describe the hating and taking them on and half-expecting them to go crazy and turn on you .. that is EXACTLY the way I felt about my ex-therapist, EXACTLY, you are an amazing woman. You really have done your homework, you really seem to know yourself....
