I guess it is up to you to decide whether you want to see her anymore and see if you can work through the barrier, or whether you would rather work with someone else.

I don't know that she has said that she thinks things are irrevokable.

Sometimes things like this come up in therapy relationships -- little tests or whatever -- that threaten the intimacy.

This has to do with a perceived rivalry or something that could create a conflict of interests for the therapist. Something about whether she needs to take sides or something along these lines.

Is this something that you are prepared to try and work through with her to maintain the relationship, or would you rather cut ties?

I honestly don't know.

Her looking furious at you... Is it possible that it was projection because you were furious about how you were being treated by her daughter? Maybe angry at her for suggesting you see her daughter, if her daughter was going to behave as unprofessionally as that?

I don't know / can't tell whether the therapist is giving you space to decide how much you want to work on the relationship or whether the therapist is as unprofessional as you fear she might be being in all this.
