Hi Molly. First let me say that I am impressed by your insight and bravery at 14. You are wise to look carefully at your relationship with your therapist. I think you are riding a very fine line with him. From what you describe his intentions sound 'innocent' but I am not sure he should be so openly singling you out. It does sound more like counterstransference to me. Like you said, he has a daughter. Just as so many of us here can picture our therapists as perfect mothers/fathers/lovers/etc, it kinda sounds like your T is doing that in reverse, hence countertransference. I would talk about it with him. That probably sounds tough but you can do it. I doubt you would have posted here if this wasnt important to you and by simply letting him know what you are observing and how it makes you feel might preserve your relationship rather that let it get more fuzzy and unclear. This is tough. I am glad you noiticed it and are questioning it. Good luck.
