Emmanuel, yes, sorry that it is a little unclear and confusing. I began therapy for my first time last February and was working with a therapist in a Center at my university where students can go for free therapy/couseling. I saw worked with him from late Feb until early May and then was away during the summer. He had a private practice in town in addition to his hours at the Center. September of this year, he left the Center to work entirely at his private practice. He told me he was leaving last April and gave me the option of either continuing to work with him or to be transferred to another therapist in the Center. I don't know what I was thinking at that time-- I should have immediately went back to work with him in a heartbeat but for some reason was thinking that I should just stick to what was free. It has caused me much emotional turmoil and pain and I wish I had known a couple of months ago that getting the help I really need is worth whatever it takes.
I just terminated with the new therapist to whom I had been transferred. I realized how much I needed to be working with the therapist that I originally worked with last spring. The attachment never left and things started seeming like they weren't working out with the person that I was seeing at the center, as I have indicated on here. So now, I am going back to the way things originally were, 7 months ago.
