I don't think the issue has much to do with your T's behavior at all. I think you are down playing your success and over thinking your conversation with your T about the defense.

It sounds like you are finishing up a higher degree like a masters or a Phd and that is a huge achievement! You said that you weren't excited to celebrate this with your husband this weekend and it was a dumb idea to invite your family in town. You also said are worried you care more about the therapy relationship than your T does. Those comments lead me to believe that you don't feel you are a worthwhile person. Both of your post seem to be screaming that message. Maybe that is the core issue.

I bet you will do a great job on your defense because it sounds like you ARE a worthwhile person. If your family is in town would it really hurt to go out and celebrate? Sounds like a great time for a family dinner. Maybe skipping therapy and spending some time with family to appreciate the depth of this moment won't be that bad after all...

Just my two cents.
