Welcome - I think it's horrible that you were never really able to process the termination. I once had a therapist whom I really terminated after getting pretty angry, only sort of. I kept seeing him because he was also my pdoc, and I'd see him periodically when things got bad, but it really wasn't ever the same again, and we never really talked about how or why I had gotten so angry and stopped seeing him on a regular basis. My current therapist thinks it was pretty a big mistake on his part not to do more to help me process why I cut him off. I think terminations are so complicated and confusing, and it probably works best when you have a therapist who can really acknowledge what a big deal it is to end these kinds of relationships.

Did you feel that you were making progress when you were seeing her?
