Nothing easy about cutting down. Leaving the nest is a really scary thing. You need him to be a sturdy, safe base and you need lots of reassurance that he won't move the base if you see him less. He needs to practice being solid for you, even when you aren't there.

And I think you are learning (again) that you can't train your therapist to be something he isn't, even as much as you've already trained him. You yourself have said he isn't perfect - but he is the right fit for you. It just might be in your best interest to play to his strengths right now and not try to "fix" him. Like all relationships, this is the hard part.

And I'm reminded that when you get bored in therapy, you sometimes pick a fight...hmmmm
