Okay, this is jumping the gun, I know, but I just wanted to share a thought while it is still on my mind...

IF you DO decide to find a new t, you might consider a woman. Not that there aren't some bad female t's out there, but I wonder if a woman might have some sensitivity about absue-related issues, particularly if they involve sexual abuse. I also think that a female t might be able to view your mom's behavior in a more balanced way that your t did. Yes, she too suffered a lot, which partly explains why she did what she did. But she was still an adult who had a duty to you as a child. There is no excuse for not protecting you.

That said, I'll admit to a female t bias in general. Yeah, I'm sure it relates to my issues... ;) But also, I think I know a lot of women who are interested in/skilled with trauma work.

Hope you are taking care of yourself. I was really shocked by the incident that you described w/ your T. If it helps, I'm really angry at him on your behalf!
