It sounds really difficult for you now. Has your new T been in contact with your old T (with your permission, of course) to get your old records or to consult? Maybe your old T can help your new T to understand what clicked between the two of you and how it happened.

And I do think I understand how your T wants to have you bring the emails in. It's another step towards being able to talk in session. But if it is too hard for you, I would encourage you to try to talk to your new T about how hard this is for you. As honestly as you can. Even if you are worried you will insult her or hurt her feelings, you need to tell her what is going on inside with you that is making it so hard.

I know that may be just as hard as talking about what brought you to therapy in the first place, but it may lead to you feel closer to her and able to talk. Or it may show you that you two just aren't a good match and it is time to look elsewhere. But wouldn't it be good to know?

Good luck. Therapy is so hard. Good for you for pursuing it!
