Not dealing with transference when it is occurring can be damaging. What a relief and what a difference for me when I switched to a therapist who did deal with transference.
My old therapist tried to tell me that she couldn't help me anymore, but I wasn't inclined to listen. I think it might be helpful if you do have that "How do you think therapy is going" conversation. If he feels like he isn't helping you as much as you need, perhaps he can give you a referral.
When you need real psychodynamic therapy, there is no substitute.
