Good advice raisinb. I've kind of been doing that. It's like I'm trying to be my own therapist. That might be the only one I have for awhile.

She did finally get back to me, by email. She didn't directly answer my question as to whether or not she'd already given away my time but indirectly it appears that she has. She offered me two other times a week from today (this Thursday she said she couldn't accommodate me).

We have never in three years had trouble scheduling a session. It is REALLY hard to believe that this isn't personal.

I called and said we needed to talk because email wasn't working. I wanted to know why she gave away my time if she said she wanted to continue working on this with me and I left things saying I needed to think about it.

She hasn't called me back. I don't really want to go in if she's going to be acting out. I need her to stay the therapist here.

But maybe you can kind of use the situation to your own ultimate therapeutic advantage by realizing things about your own responses. Sometimes I've had real "aha" moments by looking at what I assume my T is feeling at a certain point.
