She said that she had noticed me flirting with her in earlier sessions and noticed herself "playing with" that, and that she "found [me] very beautiful." I really trust her and believe she would never allow anything physical or otherwise inappropriate to happen between us (although I want it to), but I can't understand what the therapeutic purpose might have been of telling me she found me beautiful. It made me feel really good, but it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. Maybe that was a mistake on her part, or maybe not (since it made me feel good and safe with her, and sort of like my feelings were not so crazy).
