>> On not being able to tell your therapist how much you like her -- If she's a good therapist she probably knows! But it sounds as if it would be a good exercise to tell her -- maybe preface it with all your fears of what the consequences of telling her might be so she understands just how hard it is for you.

I agree that a good therapist would already know. However, this is something I struggle with also. No one in my family ever (past OR present) says/said "I love you"; I never heard it even as a child. It seems taboo, almost like using vulgar language. Sometimes I want to tell my therapist I love her... even though I'm sure she knows, I think it would be powerful to actually verbalize. I'm afraid though, and wonder what would happen. I'm sure she knows, but for some reason, that doesn't seem like enough for me.
