I had somehow never pictured your therapist as approaching retirement age, Daisy. I guess I thought of him as being more or less the same age as my therapist.

If it's of any help, my therapist says that many therapists never really retire unless they are unable to continue for some reason. They just reduce their case loads, taking on few new clients and allowing attrition to shrink their hours to manageable levels. (I'm guessing that self employed therapists don't have the security of a 401K, though naturally he framed the decision more as a question of liking to have meaningful work to do. Which actually may be true. Don't many men have trouble with retirement?)

He says it's more likely that I'll get fed up with his failing memory or bad hearing than that he'll retire. Mind you, my therapist has a nasty way of trying not to think of future problems, so I try to keep that in mind when he offers assurances.
