Hi Dinah,

Let me explain a bit further. He sits on this armless chair and he is really all over the place in it - crossed legged, leaning forward elbows on knees, leaning back, sometimes arms crossed, sometimes not, shoes on, shoes off and sometimes he actually takes his legs and swings them to the side of the chair, sort of side saddle and I get this profile view of him. Sometimes it feels like he just has to create his own space to think in for a moment but when I am talking about something that I am so unsure of safety-wise, it feels like a rejection of whatever I am saying.

Well known? I don't think that many people would recognize his name but I did once read a book by one of his mentors and in the introduction he said that that my therapist was "one of the best minds of his generation". So I think he does feel free to be eccentric.

You said, "When I talked to him honestly about what I was experiencing from him, and how it was keeping me from being honest with him, he became aware of what he was doing and stopped it." That's what I am going to pray about this week. The ability to tell him that next week. How as hard as I am working to trust him, to open up to him, every time I take 2 inches forward, he does something that makes me jump 2 feet back and give him concrete examples of what he does.
