you know sometimes it's enough for them to recognize that we are hurt and empathize with us.

Sometimes we don't need to know why THEY think that we are hurt, they just need to know that we are and dang it, APOLOGIZE if they had a role in it.

My therapist apologizes all the time, and I respect him a lot for it. It's helped me to realize that he is not perfect, but that he clearly merits forgiveness.

What I can say is that your therapist is one person that you do not have to "people please". I say let her have it. If you are over-reacting, well you are over-reacting so be it.

Practice in front of the mirror. Take in a script, do what you need to do, but tell this woman what you need from her.
If you need her to shut up, tell her just that "shut up".

This is about YOU, not her.
