I don't mean to be critical, but perhaps you are being just a bit hard on her. You do see her three times a week - that is a fair amount for any patient. Her willingness to see you so frequently should be evidence that she cares for you. At the same time, regardless of who you are, seeing someone three times a week could lead to transference issues and perhaps a feeling on her part that you are trying to push the boundaries. Considering that you termed it a "re-parenting" activity, it is not too hard to see how she might be concerned about boundaries. I think she just wants to remind you that she is your therapist, not a parent.

Obviously, I don't know what either of you are thinking. But you might want to put yourself in her shoes for a few minutes. She clearly wants to help but it needs to be on terms are comfortable to her.
