When do you see her next? If it isn't for a while, I'd go ahead and call. If I find I'm too distressed, I'll have usually worked out a whole scenario about what's going to happen that is based entirely on conversations I've had in my head. He prefers I check in with him and have him stop the process before the session if it's going to be too long.

I hate seeing my therapist in public period. With or without someone. He thinks it's a bit funny that I feel so strongly. But inside the therapy room I'm Dinah and he's my therapist/mommy. Outside he's him and I'm a client. It's not so much that I don't want to see him, as I don't want him to see me when I'm not Dinah to him. He tells me that inside or outside the therapy room, he's my therapist and I'm Dinah to him. But I'm pretty sure that's not entirely true.

What you're feeling isn't all that unusual, nor does it represent excessive attachment on your part. If she's done this very long, she's probably met this reaction before and will know how to handle the experience.

In some ways you can see it as your really correctly understanding the therapy boundaries and not liking to have an encounter outside them. I know I like to think of it that way. :)
