I had a different experience.

I saw my therapist (my first therapist) for 8 1/2 years. Sometime into that period she started saying "I've taught you all I know" and "I don't know how I can help you anymore". I was intensely dependent on her, and I wasn't willing to hear that. Of course she could still help me! She was Wonder-Therapist. I would work harder. I would read everything I could to figure out how to help her figure me out.

I've been with my second therapist for 2 1/2 years now. The transition was excruciating. But I'm doing so much better now. He is very different from how she was - different therapeutic orientation, different style.

She was right. She *didn't* know how to help me anymore. I should have listened to her and moved on to a different therapist long before I did.

You might ask her if you could see someone else for individual, but stay in her group for a while. I used to see different therapists for individual and group therapy.

When therapy stops working, it is the therapist's responsibility to acknowledge that and change things.

But, boy, do I know how hard these situations are.

Talk openly with her about it, and good luck.
