I don't know about this - I hope gg weighs in here, because she's described herself as a crier.

I've never cried in any session I've ever had, and my therapist hasn't cried either although once I was pretty certain her voice broke like she was about to. It was right after I had said something that my more rational mind could see (later) was probably a pretty awful thing to say. When I heard her voice crack (I don't think I was imagining it) it gave me a start and led me to look at how someone else might respond to what I said. It also made me reflect, more than a little negatively, about how unfeeling I can be, at least when I'm thinking about myself.

All the more power to you if you can bring it up with your therapist. I never did, and I was a little afraid to anyway in case I was totally wrong in my impression that she was reacting emotionally or that I my statement had been hurtful.
