This sounds sooo painful. He just isn't handling this well at all. If he doesn't work with strong transference, let him own that and tell you directly, instead of telling you that you aren't willing to work, and dragging out the termination.

Just the fact that he would say spacing out your sessions will "dilute the transference" tells me he's utterly clueless. IMO it's more likely to make you feel even more desperate and panicky, and hurt like heck.

I think the best thing you could do is get support in ending this relationship. At this point he's just hurting you and giving you a burden to work through with another therapist.
