I think how important liking your therapist is depends on what you're hoping to get out of therapy.

I think it's way more important that your therapist cares about you, and it sounds like she does.

I'd bring up the issues that bother you though - the uncertainty about appointments, the health issues and fears of abandonment.

On the other hand, not every therapist is right for every client. If you really think these are issues you can't deal with, there's no shame in looking again.

(By the way, I didn't like my therapist for a long time, and he didn't "get" me at all. I think all relationships take time to develop, and those things can grow.)
