My feelings towards my T is an on-going conversation in therapy. It's natural to talk about with her. But the hurt feelings are the hardest to talk about.

She's accepting of them. She wants to learn about all those feelings, encourages me to share them with her. I think how the T handles those emotions depends upon the personality of the T and more importantly, the psychological orientation of the therapist.

As far as explanations --- it depends what we are talking about. Sometimes she'll show me how that ties into my past, that is feels familiar. Sometimes it is about how her. It certainly is confusing and wonderful all at the same time.

If I'm reading your post correctly, did you let your T know how you feel and felt he dismissed the feelings as a crush? What type of therapist is he?

If it is still bothering you, I would try to bring it up again. Let him know that you really would like to get a handle on these emotions.

Good luck, I know it's hard to do. We all struggle to some degree with these feelings. My T tells me that this is the real work of therapy.
