Telling her how you feel is the best gift you can bring to therapy. In an ideal world, your T would receive your truth and help you make sense of it.

I agree with you. It would be irritating if my T did most/all of the talking. She lets the silence be. Let's me gather my thoughts, my words.

Maybe instead of agreeing, you can ask, "Would you like to hear from me how I'm feeling about this?" Maybe that's too strong. But you are dropping her subtle hints and she isn't picking on that either.

Sometimes when I feel I'm not being heard, I write her a letter and hand it to her at the beginning of the next session. That way, I have had time to gather my thoughts, edit, and precisely explain the point I've been trying to make. It seems to work for us.
