Did she say what she means by stepping back? I've actually told my therapist sometimes that he needs to step back, because he gets too invested in trying to fix me or fix things for me. And when he is, he really isn't helpful. Maybe that's what she meant.

I do think therapists sometimes get discouraged when they don't feel like they're being helpful. My therapist admits to feeling frustrated because I get to points where I don't take in anything he says. I'm always a bit incredulous, because I really do appreciate him at those times and feel our frequent sessions are what keep me going.

The whole therapy relationship can be so hard. But if she's asked you to call, she must want you to call. And if it's helpful, you should go ahead and do it I think. She wouldn't offer if you weren't supposed to take her up on it.

I hope your job search improves now. Are there many vets in your area?
