It might be true that if you opened a can of worms you would make headway on some issues ;-)

> My therapist will never push me. We'll just sit and chat forever.

Yeah... But is that really what you want / what would be best for you?

> I guess it's the feeling that he's indifferent and unengaged that's bothering me. You know, like he should say that he doesn't want me to grow away from him. Either that or that he seems so passive and ineffectual.

Hmm. With respect to 'I don't want you to grow away from me', I don't know that it would be very professional for him to say that...

> But I've always cared more than he does. And he's always been rather passive. That's what I like about him.

:-)

> Other than completely forgetting the phone calls, I don't know what's up.

Maybe its about the 'do you see me as a person or just another client' issue...
