I was in therapy for about five years. I've been out for over a year.
I went back for an issue this week. I realized in going back that I was "done." It was a great feeling. I actually felt more done in going back a year later than I did during my last session.
My therapist, however, thought I was coming back. I did say, before scheduling the appointment, that I didn't know if I was coming back or not.
I think she was disappointed and she brought up some ideas for me if I wanted to continue with therapy. She didn't push though.
My question is this: do I owe her an email or call saying I'm not coming back regularly? I'm vacillating as to whether or not this is taking care of her vs. just moving on. I also don't want to be rude.
I did say I'd think about it.
I guess I'm wondering if I owe her anything relative to getting back to her or if I can just leave it as open ended.
