It's ok to let her know that this was a big step, just to talk about it at all. And that you need to move slowly, at a pace that doesn't overwhelm your life outside therapy.

It's ok to ask to work on coping skills before going too deeply into this.

It's ok to ask her to respect your pace.

There is no pass or fail in therapy. There may be a pass or fail of *therapists*.

But if you are clear to her that your ultimate goals are the same (if they are) but that you really need to set the pace yourself, for your own wellbeing and functioning between sessions, how can she not see the wisdom of that?
