Oh, I think I understand it a bit better. Him saying that he's angry, but also cares about you and is committed to working it through doesn't sound too bad at all- there's a lot of support and commitment there even when he is angry. I'm assuming that all of our therapists get angry, hurt, irritated, bored, etc. by us at one time or another. The difference seems to be that yours says more of it out loud, while a lot of the others sort of use their feelings in a different way- to understand what's really going on with their patients. They know they have these uncomfortable feelings, but they use them as signals that something is going on with us- rather than expressing it as one might in a relationship in daily life. I do know what you mean= no-one wants a therapist to be too *nice*, or overly empathic, even. I think we really want them to see and know all of us- and not to turn away,
