> You are both right. I went in one time about a month ago and being very determined, told her I wanted to go once every other week.

Just my opinion but it could be that your T thinks once every other week is not fully committing to therapy, but it's not leaving either.

> She talked me out of it. It just makes me feel as though she just wants my money and is not really concerned with what I want. I just can't help but wonder why someone who is supposed to be helping me won't let me go?

It sounds like you don't trust her. A difficult place to be. Has it been predominantly like this, or are these just doubts that you have once in a while? Maybe it's best to talk to her about these trust issues before you address 'leaving'...?

> Do they mean well?

Apart from questioning her and the doubts, what is your feeling about it? Do you ever feel that 'she cares'? I think the most important thing is how you feel. Personally, I've had lots of doubts too, but I also had a feeling that she cared.
