i had this EXACT situation. maybe not exact but real close. i just said look im done and i dont want to hear your side of the story. and she said she felt backed into a corner. and i said well, lets say im done and if i need you i will call you. if you have any thoughts, write me a letter. i said i was too vulnerable to her opinion about my needing therapy and was not interested in hearing the reasons at the time.

i have since left and its very hard. but so is being crazy about being in therapy. its 6 of one half a dozen of the other. if i dont back slide, i will continue to not see her. i have other supports though. and a few things i do that make me feel better. so im confident it will be ok without her but for me, i had to be abrupt and firm and maybe a little aggressive...which im trying to understand now. but thats how i had to do it.

im not saying to do what i did. im just saying ive been where u are and i dont know why T's do what they do in terms of keeping u there. i think it undermines your self efficacy to hear oh lets keep this and that and you and i will work on that and this...

just my two cents. wish you the very best whatever u decide. dont let her push you around even if its only you letting her do so in your own mind.
