My T loves dreams, but she always makes me interpret it, to tell her what I think before she says anything. She only offers an interpretation when I push her, and we agree that she's often wrong, which is fine. I can tell you that her interpretation of the dream about the falling trees and my pdoc didn't resemble his at all. So, there are so many different viewpoints, and as you've said, the important thing is my opinion and I need to remember that. (The one thing they agreed on, because it was MY interpretation is that I felt strong and powerful in that dream, and that's really the most important part.)

But I did feel like the father let the daughter drown. That's my interpretation.

My pdoc is new to my dreams and seems to be a bit at a loss. He doesn't interpret unless I push him hard, and that's how we got into this mess in the first place. He always makes me interpret what I can, and like you said, we dropped major parts of all the dreams for future discussion because they seemed so unclear to me.

That said, he clearly disagreed on what the drowning girl meant. He saw it as integration and rebirth while I saw it as death. Obviously he was trying to help me not feel so desperate, but I just spiraled out of control emotionally. I'm not really sure what else he could have done. So much went on in the session, in addition to the dreams, that it was just all too overwhelming for me, I guess.

I'm so happy to see you back BTW. I know you're not a fan of my pdoc's so I appreciate your tactfulness.
