Healing, welcome and I am so sorry for what you are going through.

I wasn't clear why you are terminating with your current therapist? Was it at his instigation or yours?

It sounds like the dx embodies a lot of the problems in your relationship with him--maybe you feel like he is distancing himself from you--treating you more like a "diagnosis?"

Lots of therapists (mine included) don't diagnose--and even if they do, they give a sort of "cover" diagnosis to the insurance company and don't use it in therapy. I like that approach. I am not sure why it's helpful to give a potentially pejorative label to a client.
