Two thoughts. One is that if it doesn't seem right to you, especially if it doesn't seem right in your heart and your head, then it probably isn't right *for you*, and it doesn't matter if it's right for other clients. I'd mention it to her.

Second, my therapist is really gung ho on my therapy being my responsibility. Unless he has something he thinks is life or death, he follows my lead. He would expect me to decide how long to talk about it, and if the topic lapsed he might move on. If I wanted to go deeper, he'd expect me to say "Wait, that was just a pause. I'd like to go deeper with that."
