Per your good advise, I called and left a message. I asked if she could call me back so we could chat briefly about her email.
I also asked a friend of mine who's a therapist. She said it's very rare for a therapist to call and ask a client to come in--and she said the few times she's done it she's had to really sift through all of her motivations. She said a lot comes into play for therapists and they are human too: they may feel insecure about their practice, they may really like and want you as a client, they may have trouble letting go. She said all these things should be examined before asking a client to come in.
She also said since I saw her for five years that she definitely should talk to me to give me a feel for what she's thinking so I can make the call as to whether or not I want to come back in.
I'll keep everyone posted. I called around 6 last night and haven't heard back yet.
