You mentioned your therapist is a CBT psychologist. I think you would find more "relief" to your feelings with a psychodynamic trained psychologist. Obviously, that is neither here or there right now since your t is a CBT guy and that is who you have developed feelings for.

The imtimacy that is created in the room is a special type of relationship. Yes, it's awkward at times and abides by boundaries and such. It wouldn't be a safe place to explore all your feelings if the possibilty to act on them existed. From what you wrote, it sounds like your therapist is letting you know that his boundaries are firm.

I've never been to a CBT person before so I have no idea how much talking you do besides the exercises. Besides the letter, have you ever expressed your feelings during a session?

Remember, if he acted on his feelings, which you don't really know, he couldn't be your therapist any longer.
