Widget, I forgot to mention-telling you that you are his favorite patient doesn't seem to be helpful in redirecting your focus on the tranference relationship feelings. Comments like that can reinforce those in-love feelings. Your T and your relationship and alliance with him sounds solid and healthy, from what little you wrote, but I would confront him about that statement since it could be reinforcing the very thing he said is 'getting in the way'....it seems he has some responsbility in that to address himself, imo.

p.s. I love my Ts voice too - it melts me. I accidentally deleted his voice mail from a couple of months ago (we rarely have contact in between sessions so I have nothing saved). Oops! I told him that in the future, if for some reason we miss a weekly session for vacation or whatever, I would text him and ask him to leave me a voice message on my phone. Just thought you might relate :)
