>>> I feel bad about this last session, I made him feel bad, I don't know if we will be able to get past this. <<<
I think you will. I think from what you have written that he does like you very much and values you as a client, and also as a person. We have to remember, we are only human and so are our counsellors/therapists. We can work things out. We aren't 100% perfect in dealing with everything and neither are they.

>> > I am wondering if it would be better to get another therapist who can help me with my remaining stuff and who can help me get over the feelings about my T. <<<
If I were you, I would hang onto this one. Sounds like he can handle it. He will deal with it appropriately, I am sure, and not take "offense".

>>> It is hard because I know I do good work with my T , but it feels like a double edged sword because it is going to hurt like hell to terminate.<<<<
Yes it will hurt. But you can and will get through it.

>> I just wonder if it would hurt less now than maybe later. <<
Probably not, and you would feel you had "unfinished business". Just my two cents. (and I am one to speak, still putting flowers on the grave (mentally) of my "termination"...and not just flowers but an entire wreath with roses, lilies, forget-me-nots, etc. Sigh.)
