From what you wrote, it does sound like your therapist is having a hard time letting you go. I once quit therapy before my therapist thought I was ready. Although she disagreed with me, she accepted my decision. She did ask if I would come in one more time to discuss the "termination" but I declined. And she said "okay but I will always be here for you if you wish to return."

And from what I read here, on other sites and in books, often the client will want to leave. Therapy is hard and there are impasses. But you have been there for 11 years and are asking to take flight ... which could be a wonderful sign of personal growth. I would bet, if you let her know your wishes to leave, but you would like the door left open if you wish to return, she would say "yes".

Trust your instincts.
