Think of it in this manner:

If you were the mother of a young child that struggled academically, and a teacher told you, "I think your child should see a tutor once or twice a week, it would benefit him a great deal and he'll feel more confident in school, happier, etc." You called the tutor and liked him and your child liked him too. It was a good match.

Do you think the tutor is taking advantage of you?

Probably not. The tutor, like your therapist provides a service. It's a different type of service, but they need to get paid in order to provide their service ... just like a tutor.

She is being objective. She let you know that she doesn't need to fill her schedule. She is letting you know that she knows you well and thinks she can continue to help you. It is up to you to decide whether you think you want to continue. It doesn't sound like she is putting any pressure on you. Objectively and professionally speaking ... she is offering you a suggestion.

I like how your t answered your question.
