It's hard for me to imagine any therapist being upset if you said what you said here. About your patterns, and your having those feelings about her. Even the most CBT of them should appreciate the insight and the chance to work on a pattern.

A very very very few therapists take talk of the relationship badly, but even then mainly with erotic transference. If you're worried though, you could mention it very generally. She'll likely at least suspect that it could be something that applied to you, and would likely reassure you. I did that a lot with my therapist. In fact he reassured me about a lot of things that didn't apply to me at all!

BTW, my therapist is primarily CBT, and even more so when I first started seeing him. He may have been a bit out of his depth from time to time. But we muddled through somehow.
