This is not your fault -- it's his for not being able to figure it out. I sat on my therapist's couch for FOUR YEARS before I could speak. And I mean speak at all. We sat there, week after week, not saying a word beyond hello and goodbye. She invited me to talk, she encouraged me to talk, but she never forced me. That would have been a technique used by my mother. I had to know that therapy was safe, that I was in control, that SHE was safe for me. And she was.

I'm sorry this therapist hasn't figured out how to be safe for you.
