Welcome to Babble Cheryl. My sympathies on your loss. And it is a loss of an important relationship. I have to confess I have nightmares over the idea.

Three months is at least a little time to work with him on termination issues. Have you ever discussed your feelings for him. They are perfectly natural, as I'm sura you know. My own transference is to see my therapist as a harbor of safety, a mother figure. And I've discussed it with him many times, along with my fears of abandonment. Three months isn't a lot of time to get into all that, but perhaps it is enough time to help some with the transition.

I would definitely take his recommendations for another therapist, if only to work through this loss.

I remember that this experience has happened to a few people over the time I've been here. Many aren't at Babble long enough to tell us how it worked out in the end. But perhaps there are some around who can give you some first hand advice.

Best wishes,
Dinah
