I can understand *completely* why you're angry.

My therapist tends to do the same thing. When he's going away for his purposes, he tells me how good it will be for me to try my wings. When he's not gone, he's thinks it's best for me to come twice a week. I've called him on it, and he now tries not to do that. He says he doesn't like to think of his actions as hurting me, but he recognizes that they do and he'll try to acknowledge that.

All I can say is that you should talk to her about those things. What does she say about the fee difference on her website? Is something going on in her personal life? It sounds as if it might be, if she's not usually late.

At least it sounds as if even if she's only working three days a week, she wants to see you on those three days. That's what my therapist always says. That he always wants to be able to accomodate me, since I've been a good and loyal client all these years. I always want to sock him for saying that. And of course he doesn't use those exact words.


I really do understand why you're upset. But it also sounds like you're doing some important work right now. And, sadly, they aren't like washing machines. You just can't turn them in for a better functioning model as easily as would be ideal. I'm not sure where your therapist stands in relation to you. But my therapist said that he knew that I stayed with him in suboptimal conditions because he was my therapist-mommy. (Yes, he actually said that himself - repeating what I've said many times. But still, I'm impressed he can say it without flinching.)

Has she shared anything about what's going on?
